JustCollecting's Dan Wade comments: "Retro is in - and the 'brick'-type phones of the 80s have bucket-loads of it. They're rare because only high-flying City types could afford one back then. That rarity – and their desirability today – makes them valuable.
"With mobiles from the late 90s onwards, it's nostalgia driving the market. We all remember getting our first mobile and the freedom it gave us.
"Apple collectors are a fanatical bunch. And there are ever increasing numbers of them. I'd expect prices for the iconic first iPhone to rise significantly over the coming years.
"Vintage phones with their original packaging and accessories can achieve three times as much as those without."
