    Never dealt with them but they sound like a dealer for the millionaires with posh accents


    Would rather deal with down to earth people that sell items at a true price,


    Why do these Ulrich chaps act like snobs ?
    Usually insecure or believe that some how selling military relics makes them special. It doesn't.
    Assumed superiority is just that. Assumed.

    High prices I think can be accepted in collecting militaria and it is their business if they don't want to sell the item for a reasonable price, however a bad attitude towards a customer is just rude and preventing sales because they believe they are superior is just bad business. If you have to state your upmarket your probably not.

    Hi Mike,

    You may have moved on from the original item that spawned your question, but I'll add my own experience to the thread here for what it's worth. I've bought and consigned items through Ulric of England. He is a collector and a dealer and as you can see, has some very high end items listed. Just like most militaria dealers, he is not current when it comes to modern marketing and customer service practices. That said, I have never had anything remotely close to an issue with Ulric. He has always been very pleasant, polite, and helpful. He's been collecting since the 70s, so I think where people start to feel rubbed the wrong way is when they email a question in and don't get a response. Especially if they email a request for more photos. Dealers get photo requests all the time, and if they think that you're not an interested buyer, you may get no answer. Part of that may be deliberate, but part of that is also related to communication preferences. Some people communicate better on the phone versus email, and vice versa. So it's best to find out what works best and proceed accordingly.


    The solution here is to call him. He's much better on the phone vs. email, so my recommendation to you would be to contact him with any questions or requests you may have. I personally think that too many people nowadays have come to rely on the internet and no longer pick up the phone - this applies to everything, not just collecting. I see it happen in the work force daily.
    I know that is not the best customer service - and I agree with that - but as soon as you let go of that concern and pick up the phone, your experience with most dealers will improve. Most of these dealers are older and are not as good with communicating over email. It's a commonality in dealing with an older generation.

    Best regards,

    Jason

    I have been tempted to shop here more than once. To my dissapointment the picture are often not good enough to spot a fake or what do you guys think of this SS cap. Better pictures would be needed but arent supplied by the sller. Taking a risk and buying a cap like this for a lot of money even though the seller has a good reputation seems like a terrible gamble to me.

    Best,

    If you use the very modest priced expertise as found on this site, you can well ameliorate your anxiety. If you have weak nerves about SS regalia,
    do yourself a favor: don't collect it. The whole proposition is fraught with much heartache. The way to surmount it is through hard work,
    and the hard work is not the province of the dealer. It is your responsibility. You can see here that some of us spend enormous time
    with no compensation, lessening the fears of others.

    I strive to avoid the dealer popularity thing. I deal with certain ones, but I do not participate in the blood sport of dealer bashing.
    I would be as inclined to bash collectors as dealers, frankly. I happily bash on line savants who perpetually mislead collectors and
    others with "fake knowledge about regalia," a phenomenon which irritates me much more than famously greedy dealers and their
    shady dealings. If I am in search of ethical ideals and stellar examples of generosity and kindness, it is generally not to be found
    in the militaria market. Was it found in the black market of once upon a time?Ulric of englandUlric of englandUlric of england
