WW2 Buyer Have Learned The Collector Patter Often Goes Like This
“I Love WWII items because they are intrigued by the history behind each item.
I don’t care about the value or the future value they may tell you” .?????

” If the item has
a name attached to it, I enjoy doing the research behind the item and that person’s history during their military service”?
I have paid three or four times the value for an item ?????
ABOVE IS THE CLASSIC COMMENT
I am not interested in going through all of the hassle
of purchasing items for re-sale. So if I
purchase the item, it is most likely going into my permanent collection.
The majority of the items I purchase come from the families of the veteran who owned the
items, or brought the items back as souvenirs.
This is always my preference, and if the item
comes with a story, I will gladly produce a page on my site like “Tail of a 109” to share the
story behind the item with other collectors and visitors to the website.
I think it is a fitting
tribute for the soldier who served to have his story told where others could read
and enjoy details of his service and the history behind the items!
. Items that were produced in the hundreds of thousands are really not very rare
and do not command a high price. And, many collectors are specific to a particular portion of
the war in what they collect.
(i.e. – Hitler Youth, Army Air Corp, U-boat items, American Navy
items, etc.) So while an item may not be worth anything to one collector, it may be worth
more to somone who specialised in items of that type or branch.
internet, doesn’t mean it will sell at that amount, it’s simply what the dealer is asking for the
And unfortunately, when dealers buy lots or groupings of items, they will generally sell off each
item one by one. Again, nothing wrong with it I guess, it’s their business to make money. But
for me, I hate the see one person’s items broken up and scattered apart from each other. I
would much prefer to see the items stay together to tell the story of this one individual and the
details behind their career.

We are always happy to identify the item, provide an opinion as to
it’s value with no obligation for you to sell.

Now to your item(s)!:
I am always happy to receive emails from people who have WWII items they would like to
have and can begin to establish it’s value for you.
I promise to provide a fair price for the item, whether or not the item is of interest to me. The
collecting markets fluctuates as does anything working off supply and demand, but overall,
we should be able to get you a fair idea of the value of your item.
If the item is something I am interested in, I will happily pay cash for the item (if you’re closely keep the items grouped together and ensure their preservation as a whole.
For me, it
is always an honor to be entrusted with the details and items from a serviceman’s military
career for others to enjoy and admirer.
Thank you for taking the time to look over this page……..I look forward to hearing from you.
