"WorthPoint Forums provide both free and paid members with access to expert opinion and debates regarding the most topical issues in the world of collecting."

Unlike other antique and art forums on the Internet, the WorthPoint Forums are integrated with the company’s vast price guide, Worthopedia™, which contains more than 90 million items. This encourages discussions that are item specific but range across a wide array of collectibles.

“We’ve built up a useful compendium of price data and related information through Worthopedia but wanted to extend what we provide by embracing what collectors and consumers have to say about their items; friends’ items; their likes, dislikes and so forth.

"To be collectable, a modern pencil must have a full eraser and be unsharpened, Horsting said. Antique pencils bear different hallmarks of their age. For instance, those made in the 1850s have no eraser, and a square lead, a byproduct of making the pencils by hand. It’s a cheap hobby, with most pencils often going from 5 cents to 25 cents each.

Two pencils manufactured by the family of “Walden” author Henry David Thoreau once went at an auction for $1,800, said collector Tye Arnold."
