This is very true. I tell people this all the time, for things that are
less than 20 yrs old (and thus have a very good chance of still being in
the original owner's possession) you can trade money for time. The issue is
always you know how much money 'now' but can't know how much time. After 20
years the original owners (especially for privately owned things) tend to
have disposed of them already so they are either already in a collector's
hands or in the dump.
