4030: Cargo Carrier
Not sure what the rarest ones are. These little promotional ones I have seem like they'd be kind of rare:
1560: Glory Glider
1561: Stunt Chopper
1562: Wave Jumper
1563: Track Blaster
Those were the first Lego sets my dad gave me when I was really young. Some other rare poly bag ones I have would be the McDonald racers too.
Some that are worth a lot that I own would be the Millennium Falcon and the Statue of Liberty.
And while not "rare," I own a sealed #6394, and that set is, in my opinion, the greatest classic LEGO set.
Set #742 which was made for the U.S. but the sets weren't sold in the U.S. and only 16 are owned by members.
Set #726 owned by only 40 members.
Set #722-2 owned by only 15 members.
Set #721 owned by only 30 members.
Set #720-2 owned by only 34 members.
I could gone on but you get my point.
*(On a side note, does anyone happen to know the names of the six employees who worked under Ole in 1932? I've done some research but to no avail.)
Ah well, happy memories.
But to add to this thread, I have since been generously given a red wizards hat (prototype I believe) that has completed my lego wizard hat collection!
http://brickset.com/sets/853303-1/Exclusive-LEGO-VIP-Key-Chain (it just arrived in the post one day, TLG loved me that year!)
http://brickset.com/sets/21101-1/Hayabusa (not especially old but in demand now)
http://brickset.com/sets/1593-1/Super-Model-Building-Instructions (my Mum saved lots of Persil vouchers to get me this!)
There is still a couple of boxes that theoretically could have a chrome Vader in them that are stored in boxes waiting for me to be bothered to check so theoretically one of them could count as well, or not!
my rarest item... probably my White Boba Fett and Vader Star Wars book, the book being the more rare item. brickset entry: BOBAFETT1-1
I know I have all the original Pirate sets (including ships), Forest Men sets, and Lego Space.
I also have the San Diego Comic Con minifigures of Green Lantern, Captain Marvel (SHAZAM!), and Bizarro!
I also have several of the minifigures that didn't have arms but just bumps on the side of the torso and legs that were just a solid piece. A plain yellow head to top it off.
I let my boys play with some of my older sets, but after a few broken pieces, decided to get them their own. They love building!
But calling something "LEGO" in auctions is often done for questionable old as well as new auction items... that often just really are not the product they are promoted as.
As always.... the buyer beware...
And I suppose the grey boat rigging that appears in #10179.
I maybe have even rarest things but not allowed to show in public ;P
#3223 Little Fish
#4753 Sirius Black's Escape
My full collection can be found here (It does include some of the sets I have sold off)

Rarest would be my collection of 9 mid to late 1950's supplemental sets. Again the box art is fantastic, "it belongs in a museum" A very fortunate find as I paid just £1 each for them.
Second is this store display figure:
I saw these guys at TRU and had to have one. Alas, I had to get mine from eBay at the time. He's been a staple of my home for over a decade.
