Trade secrets tip of the day

2014 marks a century since the outbreak of World War I.  It’s certain that there will be renewed interest in the conflict and we’ll see a spike in prices for related objects.  If you can wait to sell, you’re likely to see a greater return.

Militaria includes everything from guns, to medals, helmets to flags – and all points beyond.  Given the sheer scale of this collecting area, you might want to focus on one thing in particular: medals from a single conflict, for example, or insignia from a specific battalion.
