    Introduction, Ordering and Payments

    All prices quoted are in US$. To check the equivalent price in your own currency
    please use this program -

    All items with a price are for sale or trade for items of a similar value
    that I can use in my own collection or for stock. Items marked "TRADE ONLY"
    are for trade only. I am unable to trade item for item of the same value and
    pay for postage as I am then losing out. If you want to trade items I prefer
    trading for militaria from Southern Africa, as that is what most collectors
    contact me for, or for items I need in my own collection.


    To avoid any mistakes when ordering items please copy them from the website and paste
    them to your email order. Please also be sure to send me your full postal address
    and keep me informed on any changes to both your postal and email addresses.

    When placing an order please understand that you are entering into an
    agreement to purchase. If you change your mind and do not want to go through
    with the order, please just let me know.

    If you need a photo of an item before ordering please ask.


    Postage is not included in the price. Once the order has been received I
    will check and make sure the items you are interested in are available and
    then let you know. Once you have confirmed that I must go ahead with the
    order I will package the goods, take them to the Post Office and get you a
    postal quote and then send you a Final Account. The Post Office does not
    insure parcels to all countries and only register items up to a certain size
    and weight. If a parcel is lost the Post Office will pay out on insured
    items but not on registered. Insurance does not cover the postage, only the
    value of the article/s purchased. All registered and insured parcels can be
    tracked on this website -

    I do not charge for my time in packaging parcels and taking them to the Post
    Office like some dealers, as I feel that is part of the service. I also do
    not charge you more than what I have to pay the Post Office for postage. I
    do charge for packaging materials but try to keep all the postage costs as
    low as possible.

    Air Mail parcels take about a week to ten days and Surface Mail parcels
    about two to three months to arrive at their destinations. In November and
    December, over the Christmas period, the parcels may take longer to arrive
    due to the increase in the amount of post being sent.

    The Post Office increases their rates on the 1st of April every year.


    Please do not send any payment until I have confirmed I have the goods you want to
    order and have sent you a Final Account and the payment details. I only send your
    order after receiving payment.

    Payments in the United Kingdom can be sent to a friend of mine living there. This is the
    easiest, quickest and safest method. I accept payments from other countries in US$,
    AUD, NZ$, or Euros cash, via registered air mail, at my risk once you have the Registered
    Receipt from your Post Office. Bank transfers from overseas work out too expensive as my
    bank charges me a flat rate of about US$17.00 for each foreign exchange transaction.

    I am not geared up for Credit Card payments. PayPal has eventually allowed
    South Africans to open accounts and make payments through them, but we are
    not able to accept payments as they are not linked to any of our banks.


    All items are guaranteed original unless otherwise stated. If you are not
    happy with any item purchased please let me know as soon as your have received
    it and then return the same item for a refund.
