Anybody else here tend to collect different ball markers as you come across them? If so, what's your collection?

I was out in the middle of nowhere on a fishing trip yesterday and saw something reflecting in the dirt. It was a perfect Canadian nickel. That's in the bag now. Got markers from Auburn Valley GC, Haggin Oaks, and found one on the ground from a US Open. Got a French franc in the bag. For some reason, a 50-cent piece makes a good marker (I don't know why...I just put well when using it).

Ping G400 Max, 8-degrees, tour stiff
Mizuno JPX900 Forged irons
20-year old Mizuno 5 Wood
Balls: Snell (any model), Srixon Q Star Tour and Z Star

I have a collection of ball markers, kind of. They're just excess coins that I've accumulated over the years during trips abroad

Don’t have it to take a picture at the moment, but I’d say stack three quarters together and that’s it.

I have a bucket full of them, tend to collect them from all the courses I've played.  Probably useless but sometimes I look through them and think back on the course/round.  I've been fortunate enough to play a lot of cool courses.
