    Red face militaria dealers

    Hi, I'm adam, i live in spain, I'm 20 years, and started collecting two years ago. I like to collect all kind of documents, photos and any other paper item.

    I made this thread, because i'd like to know, from experienced collectors, which militaria dealers do you think are the best, or maybe which one you like most or think is the most reliable, and if exist, which one could be more appropriate to me, as being a relatively young collector and having not big but fair budget. (excluding Ebay).


    Thanks a lot and sorry if I posted in wrong topic.

    My advice is try to shop around at some shows and events, this gives you a better idea of market prices for the items that you wish to collect. Plus better deals can be done on the day by talking face to face with the seller, especially if trade has been poor over the weekend of the show, most dealers will haggle on price and its always worth a try, some dealers are always have cheaper prices, and so it pays to shop around, never buy the first example of the item that you see, as you bound to find a better example of the same item on another stall for a lot less money. Always have a very good look around before you buy anything, and then try and get the best deal.
    If your after German items then again as you've stated Ebay is best avoided. Saying that this advice also applies to a lot of other militria marked as "RARE" or "L@@K" by the sellers. Ebay can be a great place, and bargains can be had, however be very careful.

    Hello Adam

    The Guys above have given you some Sound advice, I would also Add that IMO Paper/Documents is a less faked Market than Others. I'm only Talking about Documents which is my Collecting interest. Yes there are Fakes but they Normally stand out a MILE.

    A few reference Books---Formans Document Guides are a must for this area) Along with a Few other Books, is a great way to start. Also Keep eye out on the Varies E stands. and you could bag a few bargains.

    Like Nige mentioned take your time.
