Serious Hood Ornament Collectors

have a Reference Library

hood ornament book For the novice Hood Ornament collector, lack of information can be a serious problem when searching for more pieces to add to a collection. As prices for the more desirable vintage hood ornaments, or mascots to our British cousins, increase, so too does the difficulty of finding them. When you are lucky enough to run across an interesting one at an auto show or on the internet, being able to quickly put a value to it is essential.

As you get more and more involved in your hood ornament collecting hobby, it becomes apparent that the purchase of authoritative publications about mascots and ornaments is an investment rather than an expense. It is easy to 'pass' on the purchase of an expensive hood ornament when you know that it doesn't measure up to certain standards. Or, to quickly and confidently fork over a hundred dollar bill for one that you know is worth three times as much. How do you know this? How can you be sure? Because you have taken the time to educate yourself on the details and nuances of antique hood ornaments.

There are several good books and price guides on the market dedicated to hood ornaments. They have photos of different designs, in-depth information on the history and time line of specific ornaments, and they generally have current price trends, production dates, and identification features.

For your convenience, and to help you start your library, here are some links to Hood Ornament collector's Books and Price Guides.
