Welcome to McPheeters Antique Militaria and thank you for stopping in.  I trust that you will find the selection of quality military antiques in these listings to be of interest and that you will return regularly in your search for that next artifact to complete your collection.  Each item is illustrated with large, detailed photographs and has been carefully and fairly described.  If you are looking for a specific item that is not listed, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you in locating a specimen that will satisfy your requirements.

We share an enthusiastic appreciation for these artifacts and I hope that I have the opportunity to enrich your enjoyment of this fascinating pursuit. 

 


I find that as most collectors of militaria seek out and gather the material artifacts that fill their collection, they are in fact far more interested in the soldiers, sailors and marines who used these weapons and equipment, and the times in which they lived.  And so with the belts, swords, muskets and cartridges, the modern collector also amasses a sense of a lonely patrol on the vast frontier prairies; the terrible years of Manassas, Antietam, and Gettysburg; the steaming jungles of Cuba and the Philippines; and the terror of European trenches.   A dusty saddle, a saberís mellowed brass, a musty cartridge box, a dog-eared diary or manual, a faded ambrotype, all become windows to a long forgotten past for those of us who have the vision to see.  This is indeed, a special interest we share.        

I have enjoyed my interest in antique US militaria for the past 30 years, and in that time I have been fortunate enough to acquire a body of knowledge through my associations with some of the most knowledgeable people in this field, through constant and in depth research, and through my personal observations.  I have co-authored two books, The American Military Saddle, 1776-1945 and Bridle Bits of the American Military, 1776-1945, have contributed to the North-South Trader Price Guide, and I have provided assistance to, and participated in, a number of published and current research projects.  I share my background with you because I want you to be confident in your choice to place an order with me and I want you to be happy with your purchases. 

Thanks again for dropping in and I look forward to your visits in the future.  If you have any questions, please donít hesitate to ask. 

Best regards,

Ken McPheeters
