    Default Photo album advice needed

    Hi mates, i'm new here.I'm a relatively young collector, I collect basically all kinds of documents and photos.I would like to add a photo album(i don't have one yet) to my collection.I saw one, with around 120 pics, in excellent condition. Photos are almost all from stalingrad campaign.The price is 200 USD. here is my question:is it worth it? Thanks, and sorry if this is not the right topic to post this.

    Hi Adam, welcome to the forum!

    Depending on content the price might be OK. But I would really prefer to see the item before commenting more.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Adam and welcome,

    As Ade says to give an accurate answer we would have to see the album and photos. What i would say as a photo and album collector i would be expecting to pay way more than $200 for 120 original Stalingrad related photos.

    regards

    If all photos are indeed stalingrad, and not all are static (posing) then its wel worth 200,-

    If the album is not messed around with, and not thrown together i would say that for 200 dollars you have got a very nice deal.

    But this opinion is based on nothing more then you told us,. would realy help if you showed some pictures of the album in question

    Welcome to the forum Adam

    Sound advice from the gents above.

    With all this Credit crunch happening its a buyers Market, And I would not rush into anything. you can find some cracking photo albums/Groups on the E stands, And of coarse on dealers sites.

    Make sure you do your home work. Happy hunting

    Thank for advice mates.Of course hugely depends on the content, but that's why I asked. In fact, I didn't see it yet, belongs to an acquaintance who bought it few years ago when he was in germany in a somekind of ''fleamarket''. As he knew I could be interested he told me. I think I would see it and then would decide.

    PD: Honestly I've never bought sth from internet, all my collection is from antiqueshops,fleamrkets and trips.As I've already told you I'm young collector.
    I would like to know how does it works, what do you need, if the items come to your house in good condition, what happens if not, if somebody had a bad experience, etc.
    thank's in advance for your advice.
