How Much is it Worth?

You may think of them as only your home movies that nobody else would be interested in.  But you may have glimpses of the past that exists nowhere else.  And that’s worth a lot! 

Recently some regular 8mm film thought to be worthless was discovered in a closet containing footage  of John F. Kennedy 90 seconds before his assassination, It was quickly inducted by the National Film Registry and is now in a museum in Dallas.  

Small gauge film experienced a heyday in the volatile 1950’s and 1960’s at the very time the Interstate highway system was being built.  The next time you view your film, you may find things in the peripheral you never noticed before.  Who knows?  They may have changed history.
