As the title says where is it going. There is obviously interest, enough for several forums like this, and prices for items have never been higher relatively speaking and some of us have spent large amounts on militaria which have a large paper value, as long as you have a customer.
I see two threads to the customer, firstly someone with the disposable income to spend on what most people would argue aren't necessities, no one on this site then, and having attended various fairs in the south west/midlands as a seller there is definately a lack of money being spent on militaria in general.
Secondly by looking around at these fairs there is a distinct lack of people under 35-40 years attending them. So my question is who will you be selling your collection or spare items to in the future, just because you've paid alot for it doesn't mean you can sell to even recover your costs never mind thinking that your collection will be your pension.
Just as an aside listening to 3 stall holders looking at a poster of German items of militaria stating that although they've sold many items they didn't know why some eagles looked right and some left, just a German thing was the view, all items warranted genuine?
