First prints are usually worth a few quit more than the reprints, the older the more the difference. Some first edition books have been known to go at auction for millions of pounds.

Pewter – A Misunderstood Metal

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

Pewtard TankardI always thought Pewter was a stone – Very wrong. Pewter is a type of metal, like silver or gold. Famous for having a huge variety of tankards, hip flasks and other drinking vessels made from it – Pewter provides a tarnish free alternative to traditional metals. The Variety of Pewter antiques and Collectables is largely substantial and always fun to take some time out and look at. They are all usually well marked with date stamps and make a great collectable item, because you can use them to drink or eat from – as pewter items do not tarnish – making them long lasting antiques.
