A couple of questions were raised in another thread about completeness of collections and items potentially being worth a lot in the future. In a refreshing new move to avoid hi-jacking the original thread, we've started two new ones. The "completeness" thread is here, the future of our collections:
What will our collections be worth in 30 years? If you have a rare piece now, do you think it will be part of your "pension plan" in years to come? Will our generation still be actively collecting (assuming we don't need to sell the collections off to pay bills)? Will younger generations be interested in toys made before they were born?
Steam trains and tin/wind-up toys seem to have a timeless appeal - will our 12" friend join the ranks of classic toys? Has he already done so?
Does anyone have experience of inheriting collections from a previous generation? I have heard that some investors are putting their money into collectibles rather than stocks and shares - have you or anyone you know done the same?
I would be interested in your views - everyone's opinion counts
