About Community

This community is designed for collectors and enthusiasts alike to display their collection, discuss military history, assess if an item is original or a reproduction (a huge part of militaria collecting is authentication). All militaria collectors and items are welcome! We would love if you would share what you got.

About

Militaria can be described as anything, from any nation, ranging from military uniforms, medals, firearms, weapons, flags, helmets...you get the idea.

Any items from wars of ancient Rome to the storming of Osama's compound are welcome!

Our Beginners Guide is Here

r/Militariacollecting Rules

1.
Item Descriptions

When posting items include an accurate-as-possible description of the item(s) either in the comments or post description. Please try to give any history of the item or any other information that could help identify and price the item if that is what your looking for.

This is more a guideline than a rule. We will more often than not ask for more information where appropriate as opposed to removing the post for a violation of this rule.

2.
Keep It Civil

No hate speech. Racist, political, hateful & aggressive speech or posts will not be tolerated. This is a non-political sub; there is a zero-tolerance policy for extremists, left and right.

Posts or comments with personal attacks against/towards users (and all related threads/comments) will not be tolerated and will be removed. This includes name calling and derogatory language.

All Discord-related threads will be removed.

3.
Pictures of items

Please attach pictures of any items either to the post or in the comments. For identification/help posts, please have a minimum of 3 pictures of different angles. (see the rule Item Identification or Valuing for more details)

This is more a guideline than a rule. We will more often than not ask for more photos (or flair) where appropriate as opposed to removing the post for a violation of this rule.

4.
Spam

Direct links to outside sales are not allowed. No direct links to Ebay or auction sites that are to promote individual sales.

While we welcome discussions and questions, frequently asked or common items will be moved to the general discussion thread as necessary.

5.
Item Identification, Authentication, or Valuing

If you are trying to get your item identified/valued, pictures are required, with good lighting, of multiple angles, & with clarity, along with an accurate description, all markings, & any known history.

For medals/badges: a minimum of 2 photos is required; one front & one back.

For all other items: a minimum of 3 photos is required; one front, one back & one as appropriate (eg. interiors or close-up shots).

This is more a guideline than a rule; we will ask for more info.

6.
Video and YouTube Links

Video posts, YouTube, or other similar links should strictly be about militaria collecting. Any other videos related to or about military affairs, historical events, figures and the like can be posted to the General Discussion Thread.

All other video posts not strictly about collecting will be removed unless approved for discussion.

7.
For Sale Posts

Selling/advertising items is not allowed. Use subs like /r/militariasales for all sales related posts.

Wanting to buy (WTB) posts are not allowed either. Either post your WTB requests in the pinned discussion post or in a sales sub.

8.
Museum or Non-Personal Collection Items

Pictures of museums, outside collections and items not actually owned by the user must have a source attributed to the picture and must be submitted into the Discussion thread.

9.
Beginner/FAQ/Shops/WTB/References/Forums Posts

Posts asking about:

  • where to buy/willing to buy/is this shop reliable
  • beginner's help
  • other forums/references

must be submitted into the Bi-Weekly Discussion Thread. Posts regarding these will be removed.

10.
Verification of scanned Pictures is required

Scanned pictures need to be verified like sales posts. If the picture is scanned you have to post verification or proof of ownership in the comment section. You will need the physical picture along with username.

The ONLY exception is pictures posted with people or items that need identified. Those posts require a context when posted. I.E. what unit is this soldier from? What patch is he wearing? Ect.

NOTE

This Subreddit, and the moderators thereof, in no way support any fascist or dictatorial regime of the past. We as collectors value the historical importance of the items from these "evil" regimes and use them as learning tools. If hatred is the intent of the post, it will be removed; this sub is for learning purposes only, not for spreading hate.
