Shop Information

We are open from 10-6 Monday through Friday and 10-4 on Saturdays. I am in and out quite a bit due to shows and digging adventures so appointments are recommended. Josh Staunton (my brother in law) is at the shop full time and is available to take calls and forward me messages when I am travelling. We are located off I-40 on exit 378 (Cedar Bluff ).

Our Shipping Information

$6.00 minimum shipping and packaging charge. USPS Priority Mail and First Class is the most reliable and therefore what I mostly use. Registered mail is what I recommend for expensive items with high insurance coverage.



All relics and memorabilia are guaranteed authentic forever and you have a five day inspection period to return any item that you may not be satisfied with. Please return all relics in the same condition that they were sent and you will receive a full refund minus the postage.



If you are interested in in selling a relic collection, you may wish to consider consignment. It takes longer than selling outright but you will get top dollar for your relics and I take care of the marketing, shipping, collecting payments and all liabilities. You
get paid immediately when your items sell. It is important that artifacts are priced competitively in order to have a reasonable chance of selling. My minimum commission is 15% and there is some flexibility on high dollar items. I consistently find buyers for quality relics.


Sell us your relics

I am always looking to buy quality American Civil War relics. I am particularly interested any Tennessee related artifacts. I also buy Guns, Swords, Photographic Images, Confederate and Obsolete State Currency, Belt Plates, Artillery Shells, rare bullets and buttons. I am interested in certain World War II relics.
If you have an item you are considering selling, please do not hesitate to give me a call or e-mail.



I offer free unwritten appraisals and can also provide (for a fee)
a certificate of appraisal for insurance and legal purposes.



I buy with a collectors eye. I try to be as discriminating as I can and only want to offer the most honest, untouched and best quality items to my fellow collectors. I simply can’t afford to keep it all and I get just as much pleasure passing great pieces of American History through my hands as I do in collecting it. This is a hobby for me and it puts me into close proximity to some amazing people, some of whom write the books and do the research on the great struggle and it’s many artifacts.



I set up at most of the major shows and really enjoy the opportunity to meet with my fellow collectors and dealers. I can’t say enough about my friends, mentors and those whose help and knowledge have been a real blessing to me. I would like to recognize some of them here on my site in no particular order:
