I have a passion for buying WW2 military memorabilia but I'm a Social Studies Teacher!
This is my twenty ninth year of teaching history and geography. However, I have been a WW2 militaria and memorabilia collector for almost fifty years.
I am still buying ww2 military items and collectibles from around the world.
My Passion for History Preservation - and buying WW2 militaria
It all started in a army surplus store in 1976.
I was wandering around looking at all the gear brought back from WWII.
If you are older, you will remember it was everywhere. My parents allowed me to buy a couple of cheap items.
One of the items I picked is the M1 Carbine magazine ammo case that is seen to the left. I have kept it all of these years. It is not the most interesting WW2 item I have, but certainly one of the more important pieces to me, as it is the piece that started my WW2 collection.
I never would have thought that one item would be the beginning of a passion and life long obsession. I still get a rush whenever I add to my growing collection.
If you are looking for a WW2 collector, please keep me in mind, as I am buying WW2 military items.
No one takes better care of these items than I do.
Do your research! Especially, when contacting dealers. They often have one thing on the mind....money. Most are not interested in adding to their collection, only adding to their wallets. FIfty percent of value will be the most dealers will offer. Sadly, it is usually much lower.
If you are looking to sell world war two militaria ask for a free appraisal (link below) and I will be delighted to help.
