An opportunity to have your collectables valued free of charge is being offered to local residents this week.
Warwick and Warwick, a national firm of auctioneers, is visiting the area to give valuations and advise on selling. The company has experts in coins, banknotes, stamps, medals and militaria, postcards and cigarette cards and die cast toys and models and model railways.
It will be conducting a valuation day at the Waterside Inn, Peterhead on Thursday, October 11, from 9am to 1pm.
A representative said they have been to this area many times before and have always been delighted with the response.
“Many people do not realise that they have possessions of value, especially postcard collections, where the black and white real photographic views can fetch from £5 to tens of pounds each, especially if there is a close up an early omnibus or a traction engine,” he said.
Coin collections are also fetching high prices at present, especially those made of gold, the value of which has rocketed in recent months. A World War I Highland Field Ambulance hero’s quadruple gallantry medal group was sold in a recent auction for £14,950.
