      -"To err is human..To forgive is divine". We try our very best at all times to be accurate with our descriptions, inventory and photos. Every once in a while a mistake does occur. Once we are made aware of the mistake, we rectify the error ASAP. However, we reserve the right, in all cases, to refuse to sell any item that is incorrectly listed, pictured or priced. Thank you for your understanding.


    • Return Policy
    • All of our items are guaranteed original (pre-1945) to the period. We specialize in WWII Era German, US, and Japanese Militaria, however, we offer original pieces from other countries during this era as well. We offer an unconditional money back guarantee regarding this principal. On items over $300, we offer, when asked, a written Certificate Of Authenticity (COA). This guarantee is exclusively for the person the item(s) are sold to and not transferable to subsequent owners. Should you decide to return any merchandise for ANY REASON, it must be returned within FIVE (5) days after you receive the order for a full refund (less shipping and payment processing fees). The amount which will be refunded will be calculated in United States Dollars, just as the item was sold in United States Dollars. All returned items must be received in the same condition which they were sent. Tampering with, disassembling, altering or cleaning an item, or any other damage sustained in shipping voids any return privilege.
    • Returns on items paid using a credit card or PayPal may be subject to a charge as we are charged a fee to process the credit card or PayPal payment and we cannot recoup this expense.
    • Any item returned, where we covered the shipping and insurance costs, is subject to the charge of that shipping and insurance. This will be deducted from the amount being returned.
