Having been a collector of all things quality for most of my life I have decided to start to break up some of my collectables. The reason for this is that am getting no younger and maybe the cash will come in useful. I have collected S,T, Dupont and Dunhill lighters for years, but as am the only smoker in the family they are not going to be appreciated by my heirs who am sure will either throw them in the bin or at the back of a drawer somewhere. So I am in the process of itemising these wonderful relics of a bygone era ready for sale. At what age if any do others stop collecting, and if so do you hang on to your collections until the end or convert them back to cash. Am still undecided on what to do with my watches, especially my pocket watches, as no one has the stomach to show them off only me.
