HOW ADS WORK TO IMPROVE A MOTOMETER COLLECTION

 

We at MotometerCentral™ collect more than “just” motometers, we also collect authentic period advertisements that were placed by various motometer manufacturers and distributors.

 

We collect these artifacts for primary reasons:

 

                        1. They help to corroborate the authenticity and correctness of certain motometers;

 

                        2. Provide historical reference and context;

 

                        3.  They are great to display along side the physical gauge-devices;

 

                        4.  They help to “tell” the motometer “story” for unfamiliar observers as well as novice

                              and experience collectors;

 

                        5.  Add another dimension to collections on display;

 

                        6.  Add Value to specific motometer devices and the collection as a whole; and,

 

                        7.  Are, sometimes, noteworthy and collectible on their own;

 

Right off the bat, it can be seen on our www.motometercentral.com website homepage -and-below the image of our collection on display with a number of authentic advertisement pages strategic placed about.
