Ok I've been considering this for a time now, and it's indirect/direct affects on the collecting market.
With the advent of the 100th Anniversary of WW1 looming in just a few years, I would like to see the predictions of the members of the expected price escalation where WW1 militaria is concerned.
Within the 18 months or so run up to 2014 the media will start to ramp up with various documentries and stories of the war, and thus ramp up the general publics interest ... and thus hype militaria prices !
So !!! what are your predictions as to what items will increase in value, .. and by how much !!
(It will be interesting to look back in 5 years and see how right or wrong the predicted increases are !!).
I will kick off with WW1 British medals ... (singles to be exact ! ... the ones that have always been overlooked because of being split from either their pairs or triples).
At present .. singles are fetching between about £15 to £40 depending on whether their a casualty or specific regiment ..
My guess is these are going to at least double in the next 5 years ..
