Like many collectors I became fascinated with military history at an early age. My first purchase was a WWI American Helmet I found at a local junk shop. Over 40 years and many purchases later I'm as excited as ever to add new treasures to my own WWI US collection. With that in mind I will try hard to offer only quality, original items that you will be proud to add to your collection. Everything I list is original and from the period. Good Hunting!
The items I list are one of a kind and are sold on a first come first serve basis. If you see something you want please contact me to check on availability and cost of shipping. Although I will try to mark an item as being on hold or sold as soon as possible, it isn't always possible to keep up with the internet. I will place an item on hold for 7 days to allow time for you to send payment. If you want a hold on the item, please tell me! Otherwise the item is still considered available. If payment is not received within the 7 day period the item will be taken off hold.
I accept payments by paypal, money orders or personal checks from U.S. customers. Personal checks will require 10 days to clear my bank before I will ship the item. Paypal and money order sales will be shipped right away. Credit card payments will have to go through paypal.
Most items will be shipped by US Postal Service priority/insured mail, but I will try to find the most economic way for very small or large and heavy items.
For sales outside the U.S. I will only accept PAYPAL payments and ship by U.S. Postal Service Priority International mail only which includes insurance.
I offer a 7 day inspection. If the item is not as described I will refund your money. After that, please contact me and we will discuss the problem. I value my customers.
Lay-a-ways: I consider lay-a-ways on a case by case basis. Please contact me.
If you don't find something you can't live without this visit make sure you check in from time to time and see what's new. I'm always adding new items. If you have any questions please drop me an email.
Thank you very much!
