    How Much are Your Old Holiday Decorations Worth?

    Christmas collectibles continue to bring high values in the secondary marketplace, especially rare pieces. Some of the most valuable items date back to the late-1800s, and those older than this rarely come up for sale today. In general, most antiques and collectibles should be in excellent condition to bring a high value but sometimes rarity overrules condition. In other words, when an item is rare enough, collectors will pay a high price to own it...MORE even if it's not in pristine, or mint, condition. Early Christmas collectibles often fall into this category.

    Exceptional lithography collectors expect from McLoughlin Bros. depicting a Santa in open air car with toys in back. Includes the game spinner and four players. Instructions on inside of top lid and game is played on inside of bottom. Condition is outstanding with just one crimp to right side of lithography.
