What is Militaria and Why Do People Collect It?


Militaria is a term used to describe weapons, uniforms, and other military equipment. It can also refer to historical artifacts. Collecting militaria can be a fun and profitable hobby and there are various ways to go about starting a collection. Some people collect just for monetary value, while others are interested in the history behind the items.

Militaria may be a small item, but it's often more than meets the eye. In fact, militaria can be an excellent investment if you find a rare item with a unique provenance. A WWII helmet is a popular example. These helmets were made to be sturdy and they were usually worn by specific units that were identifiable to both enemies and allies. As a result, helmets are one of the most expensive items to be found in militaria collections. , 

If you are interested in collecting militaria, the golden rule is to check the authenticity of your item. If, on the other hand, you have discovered militaria items you intend to sell at auction, these will be checked for authenticity prior to listing. Submitting your item for an auction valuation by militaria experts will also provide you with an excellent (and free) way to value your items before selling them.   

The best way to get started on your militaria collecting journey is to do your research. Check out online forums for advice from experienced collectors. Also, get a feel for the market by browsing for yourself. There is a wealth of information available online.
