It all started 42 years ago when a first grade classmate brought an Iron Cross 2nd class to school one day. I traded all my matchbox cars to obtain the cross, and have been hooked ever since.  Over time my collecting interest went from everything to now, foreign volunteer items of the Waffen SS. I still have a deep passion for the medals and awards of Nazi Germany however.

During all these years of my hobby I have gained a deep knowledge of the details and nuances of not only badges and medals but helmets, uniforms and daggers as well.  I use this knowledge to add only the finest items to my site for the collector to choose from.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, as we are here to assist you in anyway we can.

We have family members who served in the volunteer Legions of the Waffen SS, which gives us great contacts in Europe to help locate rare and one of a kind items.  We actively search out all types of militaria from a number of different sources. Be it from simple “want to buy” ads in local papers, to “hotel buys” to yearly buying trips to Europe. All this adds up to your best source for quality original militaria.


Again, thank you for choosing REICH RELICS as your source for militaria and collectibles.
