    Hello! I don't have any collections related specifically to the Sun. I do have a framed collection of patches from Space Shuttle missions. I don't know if they qualify as antiques, but they are related to space exploration. I also have autographs from some of the actors on the original Star Trek TV show and the Star Trek: The Next Generation TV show.

    I do have some old astronomy books, and some antique sundial and navigation device reproductions (e.g. several small sundial replicas and a brass sextant), but no real antiques - that would be fun to have! I do have an old eclipse chart showing how many eclipses you can get in a year (my daughter bought that for me).

    I don't collect antiques, but in my office I have two items that I found at a flea market in the Hague a couple of years ago. They are drawings (from some time in the 1800's as far as I can figure) of solar filaments and eclipses.
