                            US Shipping via USPS Priority Mail

      ALL items will be shipped. We do not deliver items to shows unless they are unusual in size, shape or otherwise would be difficult to ship. "Pick- Ups" are also not available. Items are generally shipped within 2-3 business days of us receiving cleared funds.

     CALL OR E-MAIL FOR SHIPPING QUOTES AS THEY VARY WIDELY- ALL ITEMS ARE SHIPPED VIA USPS PRIORITY MAIL WITH FULL INSURANCE. This means a minimum shipping charge in most cases of $11. Items priced in excess of $1000 will be shipped via USPS Express Mail. Insurance rate depends on the value of the items.

Special Shipping Items

     Will be marked as such and shipping will be based on factors such a weight, oversize length or girth or requirement for special packaging. Call for pricing. The Post Office has recently created a much expanded definition of Oversize. Like it or not, items that are larger than 12" X 12" X 12"  or 1 Cubic Foot in other dimensions, will usually be charged balloon rate by the Post Office.

Overseas Shipping-

      Call or email for shipping quote. Items will be quoted at Priority Mail for items over 1lb.

      Items smaller than a video cassette can be sent in a Small Flat-Rate container for a $36 USD. Most trench art letter openers, handkerchiefs, smaller manuals, patches, insignia, medals, first-aid pouches, etc. fall into this category and can often be combined several to the box for best value.

 
     Larger items are priced by weight, and the average for a box around 1kg to 2.5kg is $55-65 USD. Trench art shells, haversacks, helmets, tunics, bayonets, gas masks, etc. tend to fit this rough area. These can be combined to save shipping as well, and even an oversized box will generally be more affordable than two separate shipments. We do encourage shipping multiple items at once and to that end, we are always happy to hold an item (once paid for) while other items are chosen, to make best use of shipping.

 
     Orders over $1000 USD in value will generally be bumped to USPS Express Mail shipping - a relatively small increase in shipping cost but a large increase in the quality and speed of shipping, as well as the tracking information provided. We calculate shipping for every order individually, so if there was something specific you had in mind we will be happy to check for you.

      Overseas customers!!- REMEMBER, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE WHAT YOUR POSTAL SYSTEM DOES WHEN WE SHIP YOUR ITEM, AND IN MANY CASES INSURANCE CANNOT BE PURCHASED BY US ON YOUR PACKAGES, SO RISK OF LOSS IS YOURS ALONE. WE WILL PROVIDE PROOF OF SHIPMENT, THAT IS ALL WE CAN DO. If this is not acceptable please do not place an order. Sorry we have to be tough on this but there are just too many things out of our control.
