Armies of the Past, Ltd. is one of the largest and oldest mail order dealers of original antique militaria in the United States. We have been supplying militaria to dealers, collectors, re-enactors, movie companies, museums, etc., throughout the world for over 30 years.
The collection started in grade school by trading lunches for other kids father’s patches, badges, etc. brought home from the war. The hobby and collection grew and I began by selling through the Shot Gun News 35 years ago. We’ve grown with a retail outlet and a couple of buildings full of vintage treasures for the astute military collector or for those wishing to replace their or their families medals, ribbons, etc.
Our comprehensive selection of items covers all forms of worldwide militaria from the 1800’s to Desert Storm, with a larger concentration on WWI, WWII, and Vietnam. All of our items are original unless otherwise stated.
We are glad you took the time to visit us and hope you can find what you are looking for among our vast stock. Our reputation as an honest, knowledgeable dealer is something we are extremely proud of and we stand behind everything we sell.
