    Default Question About Vendors.

    Mods, please relocate this if it's not the right place for it. Thanks.
    Has anyone here done any dealing with Lakesidetrader, Military Antiques Stockholm or A Collector's Guild? Are they reputable and not selling fakes? They seem to be a little more safe than Snyder's Treasures. I believe that is where I saw the diamond encrusted Mutterkreuz with a letter from descendants of the original owner wishing they could buy it back. I couldn't trust that guy.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Have personally ordered from lakeside. No problems so far.

    Paul and group at Lakeside Traders are "Great"... Casey and group at A Collectors Guild are "Great" to deal with as well.. Prompt service and a good selection on both parts...

    Moved to the appropriate area of the forum.
    Lakeside Trader will honor anything he sells and I believe the Collector's Guild will as well. I have no knowledge of Military Antiques Slockholm.

    Stay light years away from the Snyders Treasures. To quote Obi Wan Kenobi "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy"

    I have been told by many that Lakesides and The Collectors Guild are highly reputable dealers who stand by their merchandise. I do not know Military Antiques Stockholm

    Thanks for the relocate Ralph. Sorry about that.
    Thanks guys for the input.
    I see things on their sites from time to time and am a little nervous about making the purchase and ending up with a piece of junk.
    As an aside, I sent my two kennekarte off to be professionally framed for display. I am hoping I didn't make a mistake. I am looking for a couple specific things so that I can get some medals framed up also, hence my asking about vendors.
    Thanks again!

    Regardless of who the dealer is. Always post the item first. Even top class dealers make mistakes.

    All 3 listed are good examples of decent sellers. (Charlie Snyder is dead,by the way...I have no idea if anyone is running the business today, but the old pirate himself is gone now,at any rate)

    I've dealt with Lakeside, CG and Military Antiques Stockholm, they are all reputable dealers but that doesn't mean you can buy willy-nilly off their websites based on photos alone. You still need to do your homework and don't be lazy. Post here first for confirmation if you aren't sure on any item. Maybe even if you are sure, still post here.

    Lakesidetrader "Paul Hogle" ...reputation and integrity proceeds him

    Never have I had a bad transaction. Paul follows your order from beginning to end at your door step. Never a,2nd thought.
