A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art
This antique postcards are dated back to 1910 and they are written on, just wondering of they are worth anything, Would love to know the best place to list these for sale. Thanks for all your help. One in written in German.
Yes, vintage postcards can be collectible according to subject etc. I have had in my collection nearly 2000 but am gradually selling them off. Ebay can be a good site but delcampe.net as someone else suggested, is a good site too.
The subject of the guy orating is a great subject, and where there are lots of folk, transport etc: these will attract attention and of course, location.
If they have been posted, taking images of the reverse is good too, as not only are people interested in the image and location, but also the stamp and postmark. There is much more to collecting early postcards then the view!
I come from Guernsey so collected cards with my island in mind, and now they are paying off as it's not such a well known location.
Good luck with them!
I guess I'm going to be the Scrooge on this one. Antique does not really mean valuable. Look close at your cards. If you put them on ebay you will notice more dealers looking at them than buyers. I see most have rounded corners, creases and staining. A true collector, (or dealer), will not offer more than $1-$2. Remember: Condition,Condition,Condition. "Just saying"
A suggestion would be to sell them as a lot, not as a single item.
