We tend to throw away things each time we spring-clean our houses. However, did you know that some collections can actually bring you money? I recall a friend whose old uncle used to keep a huge collection of silver coin from all types of countries. When he passed away, the family cleared the house and out of interest decided to send those coins for valuation. They were shocked to know that the coins were actually worth a tidy sum today! Especially since precious metals prices have been on the upward trend! So next time do think carefully before you throw out your collections!
