Cultural Changes in the selling of “Militaria”
The ease with which a professional website can now be built is revolutionizing the “Militaria” Industry.
Each day more “Collectors” realize their dreams by listing collections on their very own custom built websites.
What are noticeable effects of this?
In some cases Militaria fairs that were once a must for the collector are witnessing lower attendances :
Getting people through the gates is not the just the problem. The truth is that buyers have invariably spent
their monthly collecting budget “online” from the comfort of their own homes on their P.C.s.
Fairs may eventually serve just to display and promote web site businesses, rather like trade fairs in other industries do .
We still have a generation or two of technophobic dealers and collectors who will insure that militaria fairs limp on..
You may be surprised to know that WW2buyer.com sell to a number of enthusiasts who do not own or have access to a computer . So whilst the revolution is underway traditional eye to eye trading continues.
What can we offer?
Collectors who reject the increases in auctioneers commission rates come to us to enjoy
the confidential disposal their collections.
Access to the internet is provided for vendors in our store so true market values can be easily established.
An average collection of one hundred items can typically be sold to us at the correct trade price in just twenty minuets.

The Trade In Nazi Artifacts .
The high values of Third Reich period “Miltaria” indicate that this market is strong.
Helmets frequently sell at four figure sums,as do U-Boat Binoculars.Daggers etc
As the generation of WW2 veterans passes both Axis and Allied Memorabilia are enjoying
a rise in values. Themed video games insure, Hollywood, The history channel and the ever expanding reenactment culture perpetuate interest in the subject.
The hanging of swastika flags in one provincial auction house in 2012 was ether, a
failure of sensitivity on the part of the auctioneer or an ill judged strategy to attract free
Not surprisingly this and similar cases ferment debate over the morality the trade in
Militaria from mankinds dark past.
A debate which has permeated into the House of commons with some members of
parliament calling for a ban.
Newspaper coverage of these events and the decision to publish pictures of the
Swastikas enabled a far greater audience to be reminded and offended ?
A code of practice could be introduced for Auctioneers and dealers in Third
Most enthusiasts would welcome a ban on reproduction flags,Mugs and fantasy badges,
Items aimed at the impressionable teenage market.
Distinctions should however be made between the items that are likely to upset,offend or to promote racism.
And innocent items of combat paraphernalia that serve to fascinate students of history.
Our site is dedicated to the buying of Militaria from the period 1914 – 1945. Our Historic Museum style store displays an impressive stock of veteran acquired souvenirs. We are amongst the most popular of permanent destinations for museum buyers and collectors. We are sole buyers and suppliers to one museum in Normandy France. It seems fitting for items to returnto the theater they were plucked from and put back on display. Other customers include the most advancedcollectors as well as a couple of approved ethical, academic web sites.War trophies were returned from the western front by my Grandfather William(Bill) Mattey.These together with the full disability Pension earned by my father at Falaise in 1944 have fueled my interest.Whilst combat paraphernalia is unlikely to upset or offend. We unreservedly distance ourselves from the unregulated sale ofNazi artifacts amd edged weapons online.Regards David Mattey (Buyer)
We believe that the preservation of objects (evidence) from this darkest era can only be justified within an educational framework.
You can now sell directly to us the retailers .
By selling directly to High end retailers you avoid letting auctioneers take a slice of the pie .
Why let your artifacts pass through several dealers hands when you can sell to us directly ?
