Auction House Article Archive
These articles are provided as a service to the collecting
community from Manion’s International Auction House. Manion’s has been
brokering the sale of militaria and collectibles since 1970, and in that time
hundreds of thousands of collectibles have come through the doors.
While Manion’s is known for military collectibles, many
other items have featured on the auction as well. From autographs to Zippos,
Manion’s has seen it all.
In the past, informative articles were published in Trendline - a Manion’s publication. Later, Trendline
became a section in Manion’s printed catalogs. With Manion’s Auction going to a
completely online format, these articles have been lost along the way.
In an attempt, of sorts, to revive the publication we’ve
introduced Trendline Online. It is, and will hopefully always be, a work in
progress. Articles from past issues are posted, and new articles will be added
often. Unfortunately, when our facility was devastated by a tornado in 2003 we
lost much of our archived material. We hope to reproduce this content from the
back issues we were able to salvage.
In addition, we welcome contributions from customers and
collectors. The intent of the Trendline Online articles archive is to amass as
much information as possible. Not only in the realm of military collecting, but
it other areas of collecting as well. The articles need not be strictly “item”
related, but could explore other aspects of the hobby such as buying, selling,
attending auctions, reproduction information, etc.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to submit
material, or have any questions or comments – email@example.com - 866.626.4661.

A note to editors:
From time to time every publication needs additional
content. We invite you to feel free to use the articles in this archive to fill
up any empty pages you may have. However, you will notice some of the title
links are directed to other websites. Those articles are already in use by a
publication, and cannot be used without their consent.
We ask you contact us in advance, tell us which piece(s) you
intend to use, and credit the author listed as well as Manion’s International
Auction House. If your publication is available in hard copy, we also request
you send us a copy of the issue in which the article ran. If your publication
is online only, please send us e-mail notification and provide a link to www.manions.com.
