Insider's Tips for Selling Militaria
How The Market Works

Whether you are buying or selling Militaria, you will find it advantageous when dealing with dealers to understand how things work behind the scenes. One of the problems in the Militaria collecting marketplace, is the wide gulf between what the average consumer expects from a Militaria dealer, and what the average Militaria dealer believes he should provide for the consumer. The majority of these differences boil down to trust. The average consumer thinks he can trust the Militaria dealer to give him an honest appraisal and pay a fair price for the Militaria he is selling. The average dealer feels it is right to pay the lowest price he can for these war souvenirs , to maximize his profit, and that it is up to the consumer to do his homework. Fortunately, by finding our website, you will be on a much better footing when dealing with Militaria dealers.

The Militaria Dealing Business - A Brief Overview

There are two main categories of militaria dealers - the wholesaler and the retailer. The wholesaler aggressively seeks to bring new material into the marketplace,he may well scour car boot sales but finds richer pickings by staging buying events in venues such as village halls ,Cold calling or even running adds in hospital magazines!.His market knowledge and persistence will reap reward when buying from the venerable older generation who are trusting and ignorant of prices. This grade of wholesaler will distance himself from his booty by selling it on to seemingly reputable retail-based dealers.

The retail Militaria dealer invariably gets some of his stock from such wholesalers. He will attend Auctions. Militaria shows and buy from fellow enthusiasts, most of his business income is derived from servicing a clientèle of Investors and Militaria Collectors. A dealer of this type is more likely to pay you higher prices for your Militaria, since items don't have to have to pass through two sets of hands before being sold, local antique dealers might be poor buyers because they cannot know everything and are not in contact with the end user. larger dealers are more likely to belong to organizations that require them to subscribe to a Code of Ethics. The number one consideration that anybody who buys o Militaria must consider is recourse. What kind of recourse do you have if things go bad? It is always better to pay a little more from a reputable dealer who offers unconditional guarantees of originally.

Theoretically items of Militaria have "bid" and "ask"Values "Bid" prices are the prices that dealers are paying if another dealer brings items to them. "Ask" prices are the Ticket prices for Militaria dealers asks collectors in their shop of on their web site. The margin between the Ask Price and the Bid Price is often quite thin due to the investment nature of German Combat Militaria in particular.

Militaria Dealer Profit Margins

As a general rule, the more common an item of Militaria is, and the lower the condition grade the item is, the higher the profit margin (expressed as a percentage) for the dealer . The reason for this is that low-grade, common Militaria such as an unnamed service medals are harder to sell. Effectively rare medals to rare units are good news for dealers .They are in demand therefore they can be turned over quickly regardless of Profit Percentage.
If a Medal will sell for £2,000, a dealer can make a nice profit if he buys the Award for £1750, but he might have this Medal in his inventory (His investment in it tied up) for a long time before someone who can afford £2000 for this particular item comes along.

All told, the profit margins for Militaria is primarily determined by these three factors:

A. How quickly the Artefact can be resold (market demand)

B. How high the Cash value is (capital outlay)

C. The trends in popularity of the area of the Military collectors item overall (market dynamics)

Militaria dealers have to strike a balance between the above factors to remain profitable.
