MARCH 2016 NEWS

 

 

With so much of the actual motometer (gauge/device) portion of our collection out on exhibition tour, we have been methodically assembling a complimentary collection.  So far, this "new" collection includes a 1914-15 era BOYCE MOTO-METER Standard Type, a very unusual Universal model Type BOYCE MOTO-METER, the most perfect, pristine and complete Universal model Type BOYCE MOTO-METER that we have ever seen and two MONITOR brand indicators, among several other top quality hard to find motometers and other related items.

 

It has become rather apparent to us, that at this moment in time and for our purposes, we are nearing the end of our acquisition phase.  Not much of what is out there is either interesting, rare/unusual, meets our condition quality standards or, is historically significant, in our opinions.  But, that is not to say that there are not plenty of very good prospects out there for other motometer collectors looking to start or build upon their existing collections.

Several interesting BOYCE MOTO-METER signs were sold at auctions around the country this past Winter. The signs fetched top dollars and quite healthy sums, making it clear that motometer automobilia  is strong in demand and value, especially for the rare and pristine condition items and among elite automobilia and petroliana collectors.
