i think it will fall into two categories Joe . One will be the artist /genre on the box and the other will be the graphics/ artwork which in the case of Mountain / Portland was unique produced for them by some artist who churned them out for virtually pennies.

It will be interesting to see which ones appreciate and we will be able to tell our grandchildren we owned them when they are being sold for thousands or will it be millions!!

Original packaging and Pristine Condition of course. The way the financial tsunami is heading towards us the wise money always goes to property, precious metals and art. It way be worth a punt the way interest rates are these days [Smile]

I must admit that I often wonder just how many active collectors the forums have. The 16mmfilmtalk forum purports to have 1784 members but some have posted less than ten times in the ten years since they joined. Others have joined and posted nothing!! Of course there are many collectors who may not know (or care) about such forums and have no interest in posting anything. I just wonder if we have a lot of departed friends who should be removed as inactive, thus making numbers a bit more realistic as far as active and interested members are concerned.

Postage from America has made buying from them prohibiting but,...I had the good or, should I say, immence luck this year to be given two collections for postage only! A big big big one of about 300 titles ,features and shorts,of original silents,80% in standard 8,and one consisting ,of over 100 cartoons.As I am receiving them in instalments,so as to not be massacred by the customs,and watching and sorting them little by little,I will announce (!)the results by the end of the year.also last week I ordered a few std 8 shorts from Bert.

Kind'a nice finding a package in the mailbox,

-isn't it?!

I really enjoy getting a print of a film I've been curious about for years but only lately been able to find. I got "Tears of the Moon" recently from Paul Foster.

-Japanese pearl divers in 'Scope.

On the surface of it it's not the greatest premise for a movie but it's a beautiful print and I'm glad I finally got to see it.
