A Gene Simmons fan from South Carolina donated one of his 15 signature Simmons instruments to the Smithsonian Museum.  He was using his donation as a political statement of sorts, to protest the non-induction so far of Kiss into Cleveland's 'Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.'  Kiss is nominated for induction, but is not yet officially included.  You can click here to read more about that here.

These instruments sell for up to $15 thousand each, according to 'The Post And Courier', a local news source, although, this man chose one that was worth approximately $2,500 for this occasion. Simmons' bass will forever be immortalized as it is now part of the Smithsonian collection.

Now that is a fan.  Would you be willing to donate something unique, rare, personal and expensive from your collection to a museum?  I would consider it, maybe, as a line in my will...
