My favorite Bonus is the Silver Strike collectible casino coin.
This is one from my collection
They come from Silver Strike slot machines, that look like this:
Most modern casinos don’t have these machines (anymore) because they are mechanical machines, not digital, and the souvenir coins cost more than many casino’s are willing to pay for a “give-a-way”.
Personally, I love them, they are a cool souvenir! There is even a “Silver Strikers Club” that has meets at the 4Queens casino every year (the 4 Queens has several machines still in service, and mints event and seasonal coins throughout the year).
silver Strike coins from closed, sold, and re-named casinos are available on Ebay and Amazon. It’s an inexpensive way to have a unique and historical souvenir from Old Las Vegas.
About 50 Nascar 1/24 scale die cast cars. I like them. They emulate speed and teamwork.
Silver Strike Coins from Casino’s in Las Vegas. Not a complete set, but I have a bunch of them. I like to display them in my living room.
Souvenir Pencil Sharpeners. I first bought some of these at a yard sale years ago. My kids fell in love with them, and played with them. Over time I got more, not the rare ones, but ones that had a visual appeal or seemed very cool; I have a display case with them in my living room. These are cheap collectibles, they break easily, but they are small vignettes of cars, exotic places, old household items of years past, etc., and my grandchildren enjoy them. (And if they break some, who cares? I can get replacements on eBay for a few bucks each).
Now you know three of the things I enjoy collecting, most of which I have acquired over time. They don’t take up a lot of space, and are not Uber-valuable; They appeal to me and I enjoy that my family and friends get a kick out of them.
I hope you enjoyed peeking into my collections (yes, those are actual pictures of my “stuff”, taken with my Nikon D5600 DSLR), and that you will be inspired to accumulate things that bring you some self-indulgent joy!
