About Consignments


At Der Rittmeister Militaria, we accept consignments of unusual or common items that are of interest to our clients. We do not accept rusty Iron Crosses, cheap patriotic jewelry, or tableware. If you are interested in consigning an item, please contact us and we will advise if it is something we can use.

We charge 20% of the final selling price of the item, which is significantly less than what most auction houses charge. If we don't sell the item, we receive nothing. We can also list your item much quicker than an auction house. Auction houses can take months before your item is listed in their catalog or on their auction site, and then months before you are paid.

When we sell your item, you will be paid in approximately thirty days. Please note that the consignor is responsible for the cost of shipping to us and the cost of returning the item should the consignor wish to end the arrangement. The length of the consignment is up to you, but please be patient as it takes the right buyer at the right time to buy any item.

We can suggest a price when we have examined the item, but ultimately, you must agree to a price before we list the item. We want to help you get a fair price for your item, but please be reasonable with your expectations. An item that is not fairly priced can languish on our site for months.

Der Rittmeister Militaria is the premiere dealer in the world for Imperial German items. Our staff has more than seventy-five years of experience in collecting, and we have been in business since 1995. We earn the respect and trust of our clients all over the world and do all that we can to offer the best in Imperial German items.

Please note that we do not offer Third Reich items.

Please be aware that when we sell a consignment item, our guarantee on these items is for THIRTY DAYS only. At the end of that time, we disburse payment to the consignor, and the sale is considered to be final. If a consignment item is not to your liking, please let us know within that thirty-day time frame, and we will immediately refund your purchase price.

Thank you for considering Der Rittmeister Militaria for your consignment needs.
