Auctioneers are now refusing to sell Third Reich items.
The collecting of Nazi or Third Reich memorabilia has always been considered fairly distasteful. But now for much of the new generation the very thought of owning anything connected with the NAZI’s is unthinkable and likely to cause an angry reaction.
At germandaggerbuyers.com we pride ourselves on servicing the academic collecting community. Museums ,Ethical investment groups and advanced mature collectors account for all or our clientele . Sellers who have sold to us can rest assured that they have made the correct choice. We are not part of the dark trade supplying far right political groups.
David Mattey of German Dagger buyers found himself trading WW2 artefacts as a schoolboy . A good proportion of movies made during the 1960s and 1970s were WW2 themed, as were television documentaries. Interest in the epic battles of his Father’s generation led to David’s fascination with WW2 .
The connection between a U-Boat clock and the holocaust might be tenuous but in the eyes of auction houses Nazi memorabilia is Nazi memorabilia .. At German Dagger buyers we attempt to provide the best service for those wishing to sell a single German dagger or a life times collection .. We do not support the ideology of National Socialism in fact our personal politics are quite liberal.
