Day 8. First set of polyhedral dice you owned. Do you still use them?

My first polyhedral dice were very likely the same dice that came in my first Mentzer Red Box. The answer then is, no, I no longer have my first set.

I put that first box set purchase sometime in 1984 or 1985 as my high school years are something of a blur as we moved and I switched schools three times. By my graduation I was working at Dragonware Hobbies and this would have been where I probably started collecting a lot of dice. 

I still have a dozen multi-colored d6s I bought c. 1986 for Shadowrun 1E and my Gamescience diamond (clear) set in the same blue faux-velvet bag I bought at Dragonware Hobbies. I use an image of these dice in many of my online banners today.
