Question
Who do I take portable collectibles to, to get some idea of their price, would it be to a collectible store.

Any tips will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Answer
Hi Sallie!

What sort of portable collectibles are you talking about? Without knowing exactly what you are researching, it is a little difficult to give you good advice! A collectibles store is a good start, however, before you start to carry them off to the store, you can try the internet first. There are many sites dealing in all manner of collectibles, I would just google the particular collectible and you should find relevant sites that could give you a good idea of the worth of what you have.

Hope this is of some help :)

Expertise

I am a collector of German WHW donation badges etc from around 1925-1945, and German day and meeting badges, better known as 'tinnies', from around 1930-1945. The WHW (Winterhilfswerkes, or Winter Charity Works) was the major source of fund raising throughout Germany from 1930-1945, and covered almost every association in exhistence throughout Germany and her foreign territories. There are more than 12,500 identified tinnies, and almost as many WHW items. I can help with authenticating, dating and evaluating these items. I can help with some aspects of German awards and decorations, although this is not my main strength in collecting German militaria.

Experience

Long time collector, I also buy and sell in this field, and have all relevant reference books covering WHW and tinnies.

Education/Credentials
