Why would anyone collect old calculators? Because they are a relatively new technology and like all new ideas they rapidly develop and change, and being a new development nobody thinks to keep old ones ,making this a very collectible subject.

Popularity
Collecting is one of the most popular leisure time pursuits, collecting old out of date calculators perhaps not. Which is why it is such an attractive item to collect.

Location
Old calculators can be difficult to find due to the fact that they are of little value when new, so having no monetary value they tend to be thrown away when finished with. Once you earn the reputation as a collector, friends will donate them.

Age
There is no age restriction whatsoever associated to collecting calculators. And as they are a throw away item they have little or no value as a single item, making this an ideal subject for children or people not wanting to spend a fortune.

Description
As calculators that we all use, and take for granted are a relatively new invention, they are not widely collected (YET). Since there first commercial appearance in the 1960s when they were large mechanical devices costing a lot more than they do today, they have constantly changed and improved. Firstly they became battery powered then solar energised, And in size they have from large desk top items become smaller and smaller until now they are included within the common wrist watch.

Dedication
As with all collections there is no set amount of time or dedication necessary, collecting is an activity for the opportunist, let friends and associates know you are a collector and you will be surprised at the donations you will receive. people do not at hart like throwing items away especially if they are just outdated and not broken.

Potential
Making a collection of something before anyone else, makes yours the premier collection of that item.
