After a lot of thought I have decided that the Russian valves in the collection are to go. There are some quite fascinating types there, and thousands that I don’t have. While I have a few I’ll always want others and this is no longer the way I plan to expand my collection.
The collection of old had four themes: CV and military stuff; German; Russian; and then everything else. I got over the ‘everything else’ business a while ago when I originally decided to concentrate more on CV and British military types. But I carried on expanding the Russian and German collections. I will find some way to preserve the more interesting or unusual pages somewhere before I remove them from the website.
I am undecided about the German valves but I suspect these will also go. Some are quite rare. Any Russian / German valve collectors out there?
The Russians are now all removed and the Germans can be seen here
