Instead, this thread reminded me of two lessons I received, and still treasure.

My Father used to say that much of the value of antiques is made up by the discussion and the talking that is done about them.

Somebody in the 'vintage bike business' once said to me: ' ... I am colleting all possible info on this maker. Mr. [snips] might be willing to start talking about it in order to build up expectation and demand for these framesets ... '.

So it goes, too.
