What makes a vintage model

What comes to mind when I think of a vintage Breyer model is history. Older models, (> 25yrs) if they are lucky enough, have a way of circulating hands, either via estate sales, auctions or perhaps even passed down from one family member to another. Imagine if a model could talk, the kind of stories it could tell. I think it is really special when you happen upon a vintage model with special character flaws. That itself speaks volumes about the owner that once cherished it. For example; I particularly remember once coming across a very old model in an antique store with a name etched on its belly. I couldn't help but wonder as to the nature of that person, what age they may now be or whether or not they ever wondered what happened to it.
