The oldest thing I personally own is a pikachu plushie that I got 15 years ago.
The oldest thing in the house is probably the Elvis Collection that’s in the attic.

I honestly thought you were referring to your virginity for a tick.

Now to answer’s OP’s question: My virginity is considered to be the oldest thing that I own.
(then again I think everyone still have it).
(In all seriousness I think the oldest thing I own is my lego collection as well)

As of yet this is the oldest thing that I currently own. Please do not open the spoiler if you hate history.

A 1935 Nuremberg rally souvenir pewter plate I inherited from my aunt. She was doing home care in Toronto and someone gave it to her, I don’t know why they gave it to her. She brought it back to Manitoba and it hanged on her wall for years until recently. Some weird oddities just wind up in you just find and stick to you.

I collect coins and paper money from other countries. The oldest coin I got is from 1898.

Here’s what it looks like:

I believe I got this one from a garage sale with some other coins for 50 cents.

My dad does metal-detecting for a hobby, and he found a couple of inaugural buttons, in our backyard, from George Washington’s inauguration. He also regularly finds things from the Civil War. It’s pretty cool seeing these things unearthed and learning about them.

The oldest thing that I personally own is the original Tetris cartridge for the original Game Boy (though I don’t have the original GB, so I use my GB Advance to play it).

A machette that my grandpa used in Vietnam, he tells me all he used it for was clearing brush but I’m still wary…

But it cuts through a branch like butter.

Surprisingly the oldest thing I own is probably a mini-slot machine sitting on my top shelf.

Quite a few things from the early 1920’s. They’re locked up in my shed, in some boxes that I’ll probably never see again.

First thing that comes to mind is my cat. He’s like, 3 years younger than me. He’s piratically a skeleton with skin and fur on him. He still moves and runs, but he’s also senile.

Broken or not, it has survived through ages and I used in battle, dishonoring the vikings, but what can they do to me now? I look awesome and that’s what is important.

An 1800’s guide to Medieval Austrian Armor. I found it hidden under a pile of books at a local book sale.

An 1857 Seated Liberty Dime. Or maybe some garnets that i mined. Not in Minecraft. Real life people.

I have a music book of Beethoven’s first 17 piano sonatas that was made in 1893. I also have some old Greek coins. I’m not sure how old they are, but they’re not used anymore and my father always tells me not to touch them.
