The news that aviation enthusiast David Cundall may have finally struck gold after his 17 year search for the Spitfire airplanes reputedly buried in Burma may herald the end of the treasure hunt of the century.
What better metaphor for investing in collectibles? Armed with rumours and prayers, Cundall poured time, money and effort into a venture that he firmly believed, against all odds, would prove worthwhile. And eventually, it paid off.
Uncovering something long buried, lovingly preserved, that then has the potential to enrich a nation’s heritage and bring joy to other enthusiasts, well that is something special indeed.
So listen to the rumours of investment potential drifting on the wind, but also, follow your own hunches. Who knows where they could take you.
