Coin-grading firm helped bring order to a free-for-all industry

Coin-grading firm helped bring order to a free-for-all industry | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

As rare coins began to appreciate in value in the late 1970s and early '80s, collectors say, their hobby evolved into an investment opportunity. Even then, coins were assigned grades based on their condition on the same 70-point scale, but as the stakes rose, scams spread. Many dealers gave coins higher grades than they merited so they could sell the coins for more than their worth.

Busy Hands from the 1950s – Making TV and Radio Scarfs - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I found this delightful little pamphlet at an antique store and thought it was a hoot! I wondered what the grandkids would say if they called to see what I was doing and my response was “making a television scarf.” They probably would ask to talk to Papa right away, just to see if I was “off my meds.”

Book Me I’m an Addict : Collector Books For Your Information - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com

Book Me I’m an Addict : Collector Books For Your Information - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I’m addicted to collector books. Our library of these books has well over one hundred different copies–some purchased early on and proved to be too broad and not deep into any one subject. I soon learned the value in spending money on great books. By now, many are well worn to the point of having loose covers, and several have been replaced with more updated versions. Most of these books have price guides, but with an ever-changing market, I only use the prices as a loose reference, adjusted for current trends in collecting and the economy.

Typewriters Strike The Right Keys With Collectors - Deanna Dahlsad @ CollectorsQuest

Typewriters Strike The Right Keys With Collectors - Deanna Dahlsad @ CollectorsQuest | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Hubby and I often laugh at what “kids today” don’t know or even recognize anymore—any kids, perhaps, other than our kids.

 

Our kids live with and use such charmingly antiquated (seemingly obsolete) items such as rotary dial telephones, film cameras, phonographs and tape players (including 8-track players), and even typewriters. Last summer, my son scored his first vintage typewriter—using what his momma taught him, he negotiated this 1970s era Royal Sprite for the price of just $1.

 

Plus a lot of typewriter links.
