If you're a puzzle fan with a strong collecting streak, you'll be happy to learn that there are plenty of beautiful limited edition jigsaw puzzles waiting to become a part of your collection. These puzzles are made by high-end jigsaw manufacturers who only use the finest materials and images. And since they are made in limited editions, they actually have a good chance of appreciating in value over the years.

Finding Unique Limited Edition Jigsaw Puzzles

Limited edition puzzles are by no mean common--if they were, they wouldn't be nearly as collectible. There are only a few manufacturers who even offer limited edition puzzles, and in fact these are the only manufacturers whose products are good enough to deserve the label "collectible." Most of these puzzle makers are located in the United Kingdom, but even if you live abroad, you can still find them on the Internet.

Limited edition jigsaw puzzles usually display a theme of some historic importance. Once puzzle I found, for instance, displays a wonderful painting of Hampton Court Palace in London. This puzzle comes with 1,200 pieces, and it measures at over 40 inches by 18 inches--so it's not for the faint of heart!

Limited edition puzzles also usually come with specially designed inlaid pieces, called "whimsy" pieces. These pieces are designed according to the whims of the manufacturer, but there are usually several dozen of them in each puzzle. In addition, you'll find that most collectors' puzzles come with either a certificate of authenticity or have a limited edition number on the jigsaw itself.
