Military collectors come in all ages, with a wide range of specific areas of focus.

This popular hobby includes collecting uniforms, helmets, equipment, weapons, medals, ammunition, ephemera, historical documents, photographs, to name a few.
Collectors seek out specialized items in their category of focus, to build up their precious collections. Military antique weapons can include swords, bayonets, knives, daggers, pocket knives, as well as antique revolvers, etc. Military collectibles and ephemera include such items as military pins, medals, & insignia patches. Historical military documents are a soldier’s mess card, draft papers, and “short snorter” currency notes signed by soldiers. Other popular items of collection within the military category are Civil War “love token” coins, & handwritten letters from the battlefield.
