What is the reason behind people buying old crypto wallets

I was on Reddit days ago and I see people providing a certain payment in cryptocurrency for anyone who can sell their old cryptocurrency wallet. I was surprised about the reason behind this motive and I decided to ask on here maybe we know some people that understand the reason for it.

One may wonder why people would buy old cryptocurrency wallets instead of opting for new ones. The reasons behind this can vary, and it's important to consider the different perspectives and motivations that drive individuals to seek out old crypto wallets.

Early versions of hardware wallets or paper wallets may have limited availability due to production runs or discontinued models, leading to higher value and desirability among collectors.

This additional layer of redundancy can help safeguard against the potential loss of funds. Having multiple wallets can also facilitate separate access to different cryptocurrencies or serve as a contingency plan in case of unexpected circumstances.

This limited availability can drive up the price significantly, attracting buyers who are willing to pay a premium to acquire a specific model or version of a wallet.
