Post by Christian Ankerstjerne » 03 Jul 2002 19:09

What do you collect (mostly) - thought it would be fun to know ;)

This could be a nice littl' archive of one anothers interests.

Personally, I collect postcards and photographs of Panzers (and to a lesser extent, postcards and photos of related subjects (WWII))

From what I can see, the only people who collect paper items are from Turkey, Canada and Scandinavia :P

Thanks to those who answered!

I only have three items in my mini-collection: a cigarette card book (c.1936), a tourist's guide to Berlin (c. 1936), and a map book of Berlin (c. 1938).

I've seem some of those books with cigarette cards for sale on eBay. How much did you have to pay for yours?

It seems as if it's not very fashionable to make cigarette cards anymoire - guess it appeals to children ;)
The bubble-gum ones don't seem to be o fthe same quality, though...

I got my cigarette card book for $90. An acquaintance who deals in Third Reich memoribilia said that that's a fair price; the usual range is $80 - 130, and my book was not in top condition.

I was surprised at how large the cards were. Some were 8x12cm, which is about the standard size of a modern pack of cigarettes, but other cards were 12x17cm.

As a non-smoker, I think bubble gum would have been nicer! :D

Quite a fair price - I've seen individual crads run as high as $20-30 (because of rare or interresting motives)...

Then again, the last fool is yet to be born ;)

My most expensive single photograph so far is $78 (or is it 72, I can't remember :?). Some of them are qiute cheap, though, down to $20, some even below $10 - but still, more expensive than yours, I guess :? (not competing ;))

How different is the 'old' Berlin and the 'new', judgeing from your map?

I actually just bought the map book online, and it hasn't been delivered yet. I'm eager to make that comparison!
