There lies a distinct difference between collectibles and antiques - all antiques may be called collectibles but not all collectibles can be termed as antiques for the fact that collectibles may not have to be old to be worthy of buying. An antique is valued for its age. While rare and original antiques that are in high demand with collectors may fetch high prices, other antiques may have sentimental value.
