When we started out as collectors of various things, mostly primitive antiques and Steiff bears and animals we were advised to "collect what you like" and don't collect to make money. Later as part time dealers we passed this advise along to our customers.
Someone said that they made so many of the N series they weren't really collectible. I'd beg to differ. As these machines age and get worn out, with the high cost to rebuild and re-tire them, how many are being scrapped or parted out every year? How many of them are even left? It's obvious they are liked/enjoyed/valued by many in the past as evidenced by the original sales and subsequent re-sales, so in my mind, they are all collectible, if that's what you like. I think the real interest for pure collectible value is in the subtle differences over the years made by Ford and owners down through the years.
As for me there will be at least one N in my estate sale. I hope it goes to someone who in 20 - 30 years appreciates it as a working machine from a by-gone era, and not to a scrap dealer.
