Militaria Auction House to release WWII German collectibles price guide Manion’s International Auction House, Inc. plans M.A.X. show debut of 2007-2008 WWII German military collectible realized price guide
News-Antique.com - Aug 25,2008 - The long recognized leader in the sale of military collectibles, Manion’s International Auction House, Inc. is releasing their first realized price guide in over a decade.
“The name Manion’s is synonymous with militaria,” said company executive Jody Tucker. “We are pleased to be able to provide collectors and dealers with the information they need to make informed decisions related to the commerce of this hobby.”
The price guide will provide realized price information for WWII German items sold on the militaria auction website www.manions.com over a 15 month period covering all of 2007 and a portion of 2008.
“We sold well over 100,000 items during this time,” said Tucker. “Obviously it proved impossible to include data for all of these items.”
The guide will present final value information for nearly 2000 WWII German items in period, what was essentially the first half of Manion’s WWII German catalog. This data was condensed from over 20,000 German catalog items. Some of the items included are: edged weapons, uniforms, headgear, field gear, and insignia.
Manion’s 2007-2008 WWII German Realized Price guide will provide high, low, and average data for both final value and condition. A full-color image is also provided for each listing.
“This is our new management’s first attempt at a project like this,” said Tucker. “We learned a lot about the publishing process during the endeavor, and look forward to incorporating feedback from collectors in producing subsequent editions.”
The guide is slated for release during the 2008 Military Antiques Extravaganza (MAX) show at the Pittsburgh Expo Mart, in Monroe, Pennsylvania, October 3 – 4, 2008. Copies will be available at the event, and copies will be available over the Internet from MAR Historical (www.marhistorical.com), Manion’s International Auction House (www.manions.com), and Amazon (www.amazon.com).
