In episode 1 of Loki when Loki visits the TVA he sees:

Junk Drawer

From this question Whose photo is this? we can see that the TVA put multiple items of value (in our reality) into the drawer.

Can anybody identify any of the other items in the drawer?

    I'm too lazy so here's a reddit post for reference for anyone that wants to do this. Could be worthy of a community wiki answer as well.

Here are a couple of higher-resolution screenshots:

A hand reaches into an open drawer, into a shallow grey tray filled with bright coloured rocks and other trinkets Another view of the same drawer, but with the hand on the edge of the drawer so other contents can be seen

I thought to check the "English [Audio Description]" audio track, but all it says is: "Loki's eyes fix on a tray of assorted gems inside the cluttered drawer."

A few of the items are "obvious" (from a still screenshot):

  • The baseball card is a notoriously valuable T206 Honus Wagner.

  • As observed by Teridactyl-9000 on the Reddit thread: The white box is the right size for a reel-to-reel tape, and is labeled Watergate-lost 18 min. (or something like that; I'm not sure about lost, but the first word is definitely Watergate). This is Rose Mary Woods' 18.5-minute gap. The evidence tag is in shadow; all I can guess at is that again the first word is WATERGATE:

  • The medal is the badge of the French Legion of Honor. Its evidence tag very legibly reads "French Medal of Honor." The field at the bottom says something like "AFB-TEN", but actually that's probably just the identifier of the agent who placed the item into evidence, and unrelated to the identity of the medal itself. I tried and failed to find any (real-world) "lore" about someone who might have lost a Legion of Honor medal and/or vanished while wearing one.

Another tag, legible this time, as described above

  • The poker chip is just a plain old Crown Company brand clay poker chip in the $5000 denomination. You can buy such chips in rolls of 25, e.g. here. I tried and failed to find any (real-world) "lore" about such a chip.

  • Someone in this reddit thread points out that the silver cross resembles the Cross of Coronado from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; but it's missing the corpus of Jesus (that is, the one in the drawer is a plain cross; the one from Indiana Jones was a crucifix).

According to a comment by TheLethalCarrot, here are a few of the items that were found in the drawer:

  1. coiled engine head
  2. TVA tag with "evidence", other words indecipherable
  3. woven plate with 80s candy
  4. handle of something, wooden, with golden hardware
  5. another TVA tag
  6. red coil of some kind
  7. White frame serving as a plate for items
  8. properly tagged French Medal of Honor
  9. outside of frame to the left - metallic object, unidentified
  10. outside of frame what appears to be a purple bracelet, futuristic
  11. 5000 worth of a gamble chip
  12. red sash
  13. a gun and a medal (or something possibly joined)
  14. four 80's styled glass marbles for children
  15. a baseball card
  16. TVA Tag that says: "Lot of early i..." and in the next line "Baseball cards.."
  17. Byzantine styled metallic cross, with jewels on it (most likely to be Orthodox)
  18. magnifying glass with wooden frame; appears to be older
  19. Multiple various infinity stones
  20. something that appears to be a handgun
  21. cable under the white frame
  22. a white object with the KIKA word on it

(Please note that I made some slight corrections, so the answer on Reddit differs slightly.)

    These are just descriptions, and as pointed out on Reddit, somewhat inaccurate. It doesn't answer what they actually are.
