I remember the exact round "filtrate is here" in better condition going for £500 2 years back, thought it was pricey then!

That national pump one was so hard to sell for a few hundred. To think the Pughs sale was only a week before and that saw some mega prices too.

Seriously  ?  That tin !
If anyone understands having to have a certain tin .. just because , it's me .I have paid way over the odds on a number of occasions , as have many of us I reckon .
But that Batoyle tin is fairly plain and boring regardless of scarcity . Just doesn't cut it for me . Someone or a couple of them just had to have it .
For a while now if faced with a choice of paying well over the odds to buy something , I have been asking myself what else can I buy instead for that amount of my hard earned cash . I can think of quite a few worthy enamels that can be had for that sort of money .
Interesting to know what others think ?

You are talking about people with serious amounts of money !! No " normal " person ( no offence ) could afford to spend £4,000 on a tin ...more than once in a few years surely.

I don't think its Collectors in the true sense of the word ...OMO ...I think its people with vast amounts of money.  Not up at the crack of dawn at boots, fairs etc swapping their way up to ' better ' items. Or selling loads of smaller finds to fund that special purchase.

I am not having a go good luck to everybody however to get your stuff,  its just a different animal in a different world. One of my mates often poses the question " how good would your collection be if you were a multi millionaire ?" In my case it would be non existent cos if I could just buy any thing I wanted I would honestly get no enjoyment out of it. 

 

A few big players or any way a small percentage are dragging up prices to  unprecedented levels, will they keep rising, level off or even fall................thats the $64,000 question.

 

Its certainly not a one way bet as many suggest.  Guinness, Doulton, Blue & White, Stamps etc, etc in general could point to going in the wrong direction

i think they are collectors, just with deeper pockets than most. Those cans are a bit niche so they know their onions.
Prices, like just about everything i can think of nowadays is going up, it's the new normal .... will it end? I'm sure at some point, but then people have been saying that about the
housing market for donkeys years and thats only gone one way.
We just have to scrabble and gather up the crumbs i guess. I still blame Drew Prichard and the American pickers!

I think with motoring, everyone can put together a collection of cans, but there seems to be a minority of very graphic and very scarce tins. Anyone with a good income can collect most of them, but the very top 5% is highly contested.
