Online Survey about Collecting Preferences

Member Franky Leeuwerck started writing blog posts about antique securities a decade ago. For this 10-year anniversary occasion he has set up an online survey (poll) about collecting preferences. The survey questions about concepts like ‘Beauty’, ‘Scarcity, ‘Historical significance’, ‘A good bargain’ and ‘Collection completeness’, which are all incentives for collectors worldwide.

Your (anonymous) participation is relevant and will be much appreciated. You can access the poll here: http://leeuwerck.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html
