This site looks pretty sloppy because I am in the process of upgrading to ExpressionsWeb. All of the information is on the site, but I've got a lot of formatting and tweaking to do. I believe it will take until early September

Featured Display - Civil War Relics
I have recently completed a few new displays. Among those is this 5"x7" framed display of 15 different excavated Civil War bullets. Included left to right, top to bottom are .69 CSA Buck and Ball, .58 Spencer, .56 Colt Revolving Rifle, .52 Sharps Ringtail, .58 Minie, .54 Musket, .54 Starr, .54 Cosmopolitan, .69 3-Ring, .58 Enfield, .54 Joslyn Carbine, .69 Musket, .58 Williams I, .58 Williams II, and .58 Williams III. This particular item and the other three similar displays is $49.00. Domestic shipping is $6. I was unable to get rid of the reflections. Sorry.

After many requests over the years, I have finally created a catalog that contains representative pictures and prices of most of my descriptive display. Click here to read or download that catalog.

Below are links to my various areas.
of Honor - This area contains a great deal of
fascinating information about the Congressional Medal
Honor and its recipients. Hundreds of displays with
authentic signatures are available. Info on the Tiffany
Cross is also included in the free research area.
Knights Cross - This link has been changed to reflect the most recent update. This area contains a great deal of information about German heroes - mostly WWII Luftwaffe, SS, and U-boatmen. There are many authentic signatures and signed photos of Knights Cross recipients as well as fine album pages and other information. I offer these items for their historical value - not political. In this area you will find several different collections.
Victoria Cross - The Victoria Cross is UK's equivalent of the U.S. Medal of Honor and the German Knights Cross - only throughout history there have been far less awarded. This area contains a number of incredible signed Victoria Cross items.
US Civil War - In this area you will find a few of the descriptive displays I have created using small excavated US Civil War relics. These displays are cut to fit standard 8x10 or 5x7 frames.
Miscellaneous Displays - In this area you will find a number of truly unusual items in various areas of interest. They range from affordable, fascinating ancient artifacts to recent political items.
Other Autographs - I have many autographs that are not military related. I've never posted any of these before, but am starting to list them now. I will add a few new ones periodically.
Research and Free Info Area - An incredible resource area for all kinds of fascinating information all in one place.
Book Area - 1st edition books, signed and multi signed militaria books, rare books, misc books and some great new and inexpensive militaria books.

Awesome site. Every time I return there is something new. Thanks. I try to have something new every week.
You are to be congratulated for what you are doing to promote our heroes. I really appreciate that since my priority in retirement is the positive promotion of all heroes - both ours and foreign.
This site is really a valuable resource. You not only have a great deal of interesting items for sale, but there is a huge amount of outstanding educational material on your sige. Thanks for the kind words. They are much appreciated.
I am offended by what you have in the German area of this site. They are scum. During WWII they killed my father. I can appreciate your feeling. War is always terrible. Terrible things are committed by both sides, however the vast majority of those who served in both Germany and the US armed services were not politically motivated, but rather were fighting for their country. German lost but their honorable soldiers should not be forgotten. My favorite story is about the Luftwaffe ace, Molders, who court martialed more than one of his charges for improper treatment of Allied POWs.
I accidented upon your site when searching for old recordings by the musician, Cyril Stapleton. You have the most fascinating site I have visited. Thanks. I actually met Cyril Stapleton (same name as mine) at the Metropole in New York City back in the 1950's. Wish I could claim him as kin, but we could not find anything we had in common other than a love for music.
The custom display you did for my late father - a WWII vet - was incredible. I would like to order three more for my brother and sisters. I love to hear that. Please let your friends know about my custom veteran displays.
I do not bookmark many sites but yours, in-so-far-as content is the best I have found on the Internet. Congratulations from a museum director in Belgium. I was referred to you by one of your vendors in London who I have been dealing with for many years. The added value you give to his products assures my return to make more acquisitions for our museum. I appreciate that. I'm honored that my vendors recommend me.
I collect autographs of English Victoria Cross recipients and German Knights Cross recipients. Both of these are very hard to find. I was surprised to find you carry both. I am fascinated by heroes - regardless of which side they fought. My favorite displays are the ones I create for the VC, KC, and US Medal of Honor recipients.
The Best Civil War Displays Money Can Buy, Great Gentleman To Do Business With!! Thanks. I try.
I'm back for the 5th time for another gift. Your Civil War, Ancient, and Humorous displays are the finest, least expensive, and most unique and most affordable I have found anywhere. If you could come up with an appropriate wedding gift display, you would be my sole source for gifts. I really appreciate that. Keep in mind that if you have someone you would like a special gift for, let me know their area of interest and I may be able to create a special display for them. I'll work on coming up with something appropriate for the bride and groom.
Love your site, but am interested in specific items, not displays. Sorry but I cannot compete with those selling individual items. My niche is giving the added value.
Nice site. No, not a "nice" site but a really great site. Thanks!
Every time I visit your site there is something new. Where do you find the time? I try to put in an hour or so each day working on my site. If I don't have anything new to add, I try to make a few changes to make it "look" different.
I accidented upon your wonderful site while searching for something related to the Civil War for a last minute Christmas gift. The beautiful display I ordered on December 21 arrived in perfect condition across the country on December 22 and was much nicer than I had expected. You impressed me and I will be back. When you are as small as I am, service is the main thing I have to offer. I do my best to provide whatever service my customers may require.
Love this site. Very easy to navigate.
I find it really difficult to believe that you created and maintain this site alone and have the time to get anything else done. It's the most interesting web site I have visited. I have the time because when my wife and I sold our printing company in 1995 I had dreams of leisurly traveling the world with my bride. She decided she was too young to retire and started a new career as a high school English teacher. Now I read, run errands for her and play around with my web site.
Enjoy browsing. Hopefully, you will find this is one of the more interesting sites on the web. Like any website, this one is constantly under construction. I spend a little time each day working to improve the site. You are invited to bookmark us and return often.
The fastest way to contact me is via e-mail. A somewhat slower contact is by fax or mail. All phone calls are taken by voice mail - which I hate as much as do you, but I'm seldom in my office during normal working hours.
