How trade works
Whether you are buying or selling war arms and antiques, you will find it advantageous when negotiating with dealers to understand how things work.
One observation of the Antiques marketplace, is the gulf between what the consumer expects from an Antiques dealer, and what the average Antiques dealer believes he should provide for the consumer. These differences are based on trust. The consumers hope they can trust the Antiques dealer to give them an honest appraisal and pay a fair price. The average dealer feels it is right to pay the lowest price he can for his stock, to maximize his profit, and that it is up to the consumer to have done their homework.
Fortunately, by finding our website, WW2buyer.com, you will be on a much better footing when negotiating with war Antiques dealers.

Militaria includes a wide variety of items ranging from current items to artifacts that are thousands of years old. Collecting anything is a highly personal endeavor done for specific reasons. Some militaria collectors focus on a particular type of item, some focus on a particular time in history or war period, while others focus their interests on one particular army or nation. In any case, a collector’s personal motives will determine the types of items that person specializes in collecting, the condition the items need to be in, and the price that is acceptable.
