We buy rare naval and military books, letters, diaries, edged weapons, medals, optical instruments, time pieces, and other artifacts and ephemera.


We are mainly interested in the 1800 to 1945 time period with an emphasis on American, Austro-Hungarian, Dutch, Imperial German, Imperial Japanese, Imperial Russian, and Spanish Navies.


While we occasionally buy from dealers, we prefer to work directly with veterans and their families since they can provide more of the history and background of the items and the history of the men to whom they belonged. If you have an item or items for sale, please contact us.
