Collectibles auctioneer Warwick & Warwick holds 24 auctions a year for stamps, coins, banknotes, postcards, cigarette cards, medals and militaria, die-cast toys and model railways. It offers free valuations and stages ‘valuation days’, which take place across the whole UK, and will arrange home visits or free transportation of collections to their office for those further afield. Since the firm was established in 1958, it has attracted an impressive and loyal international clientele. With ten experts on site, it claims to have ‘a combined knowledge-base spanning more than a century’. Senior collectibles valuer Richard Beale has seen a trend in nostalgic collecting. As baby boomers hit retirement, their childhood toys become must-have items.
