"Must Have" Collectors darts?
What would the collectors on here say are the "Must have" darts for any collection? Or any darts they would love to have but have never seen? Recently entered the collecting game and a few of you may have noticed some of my posts...but I am buying blind. Would like an idea of what are the ones people think are collectable?

Thanks

Jon

Some old original Silver Comets, Leo Newsteads, Pikes you already have. Probably a few darts out there that have never been seen as I am sure there will have been a lot of small runs of darts from companies that are long gone.

Unicorn Half- Pints are fun. Rare ones are the News Of The World Solid Silver darts. Milbro Dandy Adjustables.

Good advice from Grip there.

I personally go for unusual darts like the Northwood collapsible dart. Although my solid silver darts are also high on the list of favourites.

Good luck with your collection

In my opinion there is only one "must have" dart set:

Agree on the original Silver Comets and the Jim Pike branded - some of the Unicorn darts like the Bantams and the original Dum Dums are fun as well.

My favourites in my collection are the set of Jack Hood's and the Northwood Collapsible's - would love a set of the silver NOTW darts at some point, and also a set of the Victory darts.

There's lots of threads in here with our vintage darts collections

Here's one of mine showing several of my bits - https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthre...?tid=12606

and Stuart's - https://www.dartsnutz.net/forum/showthre...?tid=12601

There's loads more threads in this part of the forum, and if you look at the link in Darren;s signature you'll see a lot of his as well

I think independent views will vary on what would be the essential set of darts within a collection. Although common these days comparative to when I started gathering my collection, I would say cocked hand bristows really............ Then original Jim pike brass or something like B+W jocky wilsons.

There's plenty that feel i 'should' have but for whatever reason, never got.
Pikes, dum dums, mini golden unicorns.

Must have missed out on dozens of chances to buy a nice set of pikes.
Will get a set one day!

One type of dart you do not want to collect is the Dorwin darts. They are awkward,ugly and very common. Myself,Getagrip and a few others want everyone else to pretend they are worthless and non collectable. LOL

The Variant - is a set of darts I like to collect. I have heard several on the forum who would like to own a set. Anything with a wood shaft and turkey feathers I like also.

I have a set of the B & W Jocky Wilson's that I bought from Tommy's back in 1986. Skinniest darts I own, and skinniest I think I've ever seen that take 2BA stems. And they throw very nicely, too.

It would interesting to consider which of the currently available darts will go on to become classics.
