My first polyhedral dice were the 5 that came in the 1970s Holmes boxed basic D&D set. Today I found the surviving 4 in a box of miniatures — the D4, 6, 8, and 12, all with significant wear from use and probably from being run over in the street after I dropped my dice bag ca. 1990. The orginal white D20 from that set was either lost or discarded after completely disintegrating years ago. The pale blue one here must be the first loose D20 I bought to replace it.
When I bought new dice recently I picked the same colors.
