Collectibles: Searching for those Hard-to-Find Diecast ModelsWritten by Dale Stewart
For collectors of any kind, there are always those items that are much sought after, but nearly impossible to find. If they’re lucky enough to finally locate them, price is often exorbitant or there are some other restrictions which inhibit their ability to secure them. With a good deal of patience and persistence, however, even rarest of these collectibles can be found and purchased without as much difficulty as one might imagine. One simply needs to know where to look.
In past, people have been pretty much limited to finding rare collectibles at auctions, estate sales and flea markets. Today, much of searching is done via internet. Diecast models of all sorts – including those which are considered rare – can be located with simple click of mouse on a major search engine.
Suppose, for a moment, that you’re interested in locating a specific Formula One racecar diecast model. By going to an online merchant that specializes in this type of model, you’ll be able to choose from among a wide variety of rare or hard-to-find models. An example of a site that would carry such items is www.f1models.biz. If, on other hand, you’re more interested in finding rare diecast models of airplanes from Corgi Aviation, you can visit www.planecrazy.biz.
Should you happen to be looking for a diecast model that’s considered to be extremely rare, you may have to find specific companies or individuals that handle objects which specialize in items that were produced in a very limited number. If, for instance, you’re hoping to add a 1913 Collector’s Edition Ford Model T at a 1/16 scale to your collection, you can find this extremely rare model at www.franklindanbury.com. This is a very hard to find diecast model, and they specialize in Franklin and Danbury Mint cars. The price isn’t always listed, and you may have to e-mail them for pricing information, but some collectors are willing to pay higher prices in order to find that one special piece that would make their collection complete.
