During the move I rediscovered the box of D&D stuff my wife brought with her when we first moved in together.
The whitebox D&D set is a little beat up on the outside but the rulebooks inside are in great shape along with Greyhawk, Blackmoor and Eldritch Wizardry supplements. As I recall the OD&D set came along in a box of game stuff a female professor's mother gave her in college (which had some dice and grenadier miniatures also). I jokingly call the whole box her dowry.
A number of books also came from a random guy who dropped off a box of D&D stuff when he saw her playing in a coffee shop.
She's got another box of White Wolf Games products but I can forgive her for that ;-)
