Well, there is a variety of different criteria that people use for that, but technically anything that is prior to 1835 is considered an antique. Anything prior to the machine age is a true antique. So a collectable could really be anything after that, but that's not how it necessarily works. Obviously, people consider things from the Victorian era as antiques. Most antique stores are filled with Victorian era furniture, knickknacks, and that sort of thing. They are considered antiques. Collectables really for most people start around the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, to now.


Q: What are some common collectables?
