(Edited down)
A logical thing to do IMHO is to downsize in later years. ....... I would like to be down to maybe just a couple hundred that are truly my collection. That will be more than enough for family to deal with if and when something happens to me. (Iím 60)

I plan to do the same Terry.  I have a couple hundred in display in my home. When I get a new phone, one get packed up, usually a common set.   So in a year or two I will be selling some surplus phones either online or at a show. I don't want to have a storage problem later.

If something should happen to my wife and I at the same time we placed our collections in our Trust with instructions for my phones to go to a non-profit museum and my wife's collection to non-profit groups.

That sounds like some good planning Russ....and D/P too....great problem solver!

Even some basic instructions left will give those that have to deal with the collection some basic ground rules based on your wants.
