INFORMATIVE LINKS
FOR MILITARIA COLLECTORS

CONTACT OTTO HERE
 

Last Updated on 27APR13

Below you will find links to pages maintained by various collectors and dealers which contain some very useful information of interest to the collector.  I do not maintain any of these and am not responsible for their content or accuracy.  NEVER take anything you read for gospel just because it's on a web page or in a book.  ALWAYS try to confirm facts from several sources.  The following sources are ones that I've found useful and I think you will too.  Happy Surfing!

J&C SALES

This is one of the very few commercial links you will find posted here.  These folks have a nice selection of ammunition for those of us that enjoy shooting our old military arms and their prices are excellent.  Need ammo?  GO HERE!

The K98k Bayonet Collector's Network
{aka The BCN}

An Organization for bayonet collectors with heavy emphasis on German SG 84/98 Mod.III Bayonets.  Other popular discussion topics are German Militaria, Imperial, Weimar, and other German Era Bayonet Collectors as well as any other bayonets that any member wishes to discuss.  This discussion driven organization offers "free" membership and is dedicated to the free sharing of knowledge between bayonet and militaria collectors.  The actual "cost" on membership is participation in our discussions.  Those who don't participate are removed from the membership list.

Tomasz Pietrzak's
POLISH BAYONET PAGE

Dedicated to foreign bayonet collectors, because this topic is unknown outside Poland. In many western catalogues, Polish bayonets are incorrectly identified. Even in Kiesling there are mistakes. It will be nice if these pages help collectors know Polish bayonets better.
