I picked up a small container of Lego bricks yesterday at my local Goodwill. It had around 50 pieces, mostly basic bricks (because who can ever have too many basic bricks?) and a couple common slopes. There were a few pieces I've never seen before, so I thought I'd share them.

First we have these old windows/door frame. According to Bricklink, they haven't been used since the 70s.

Here's the container, you can see a standard red rowboat next to it for size comparison. It has a copyright date of 1985 on the bottom.

And the final curiosity, a minifig torso with no gripping mechanism to hold the legs inside at all. I assume this is what the inside of the first minifigs were like? For those curious, the print is this: http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/973p13
