Table of Contents

Trending Collectibles: 2015 Military Aviation Review is the first annual market report designed specifically for collectors of aviation related militaria and historical flying kit from World War 1 and World War 2. The report features recent sales of aviation collectibles based on the actual sales price. The information has been gathered from internationally known, well-respected, reputable dealers and private collectors. It includes common and not-so-common items, with prices ranging from a few dollars or pounds to several thousand, each with a colour photograph and brief description. It is designed for quick and easy reference by both collectors and sellers, and intended to help establish fair market values as well as an understanding of how those values change over time.

REAL ITEMS. REAL SALES. ACTUAL PRICES. The Army, Navy and Air Forces of the United States, Great Britain (and the Commonwealth nations of Australia, Canada, New Zealand plus South Africa), France, The Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia, as well as the Axis powers of Germany, Italy and Japan, are all represented.

Collectible items featured include: flying headgear (helmets, goggles, oxygen masks), flying clothing (jackets, gloves, boots, etc.), air force and military uniforms and caps, life jackets ("mae wests"), parachutes, escape and evasion items and survival kits, plus wings, badges, patches, insignia, aircraft parts (joysticks, painted emblems, cockpit instruments, clocks and other relics), as well as aviation ephemera such as log books, technical manuals and pilot's notes, maps, navigation tools and station items including emergency service equipment, scramble bells, mess hall plates and even home front games and toys.

This book will be a great resource for buyers, collectors and dealers of aviation related material and military antiques. It will be of value to old and seasoned collectors, and will also encourage new collectors who may be confused by the array of artifacts and vast range of prices. It may also help in establishing values for insurance purposes. Collecting has always been for fun, but as the popularity of vintage militaria increases, so does its market value. These days, many financial advisors encourage people to include a percentage of collectibles in their investment / retirement portfolio. Trending Collectibles Military Aviation Review has done the hard work, gathering the most up-to-date and accurate sales information - so whether a collector likes painted A-2 flight jackets, squadron patches, Battle of Britain Spitfire relics or Luftwaffe uniforms, this book will help with the decision-making process of what to buy!
