What is Militaria Collecting?

Militaria, also known as military memorabilia, are military equipment which are collected for their historical significance. Such items include uniforms, swords, knives, bayonets, helmets and other equipment such as field gear, military orders and decorations, wings, patches, badges and insignia.

In addition, it can include items related to the home front or civilian organizations during war time. This can include posters, flags, photographs, magazines and papers.

Military collections can range from the smallest of objects (buttons from the Civil War) to the largest (tanks, planes and Jeeps). It's a fascinating area, combining history, politics, technology and more.

The most valuable of these objects are usually original/genuine, with some historical significance, and in good condition. Replica items can also fall in the category of militaria and are sometimes desirable when the original items are difficult to find.

There are also reenactors that collect only reproduction items to use at living history events.
