Dave - I completely agree.
If you know what you're doing you'll identify things that will be
valuable in the future, rather than chase things that are already
valuable or what other people say is valuable. Before they're highly
valued buy two, keep one for yourself and sell the other one.
Even smarter ignore what other people say is valuable and find value
in what you already have.

It has arguably made a far deeper impact on society than either cars or jewelry. Can you offer any good reasons why its history should be any less sought-after or valued?
