About us

Greetings and welcome! it's great you found us!

For over 30 years we've studied, collected and dealt full-time exclusively in unique, interesting, rare or noteworthy historical items which are collectible due to their historical, aesthetic or monetary value.

We specialize primarily in old printed sheets of paper (maps, engraved prints, historical graphics in all areas, philately, trade cards, chromolithography, ephemera, stereoviews) and also investment level certified precious coins of numismatic interest. 

We remain relaxed and easy-going generalists, buying what appeals to us when presented with fleeting opportunities as they arise. We enjoy an endless and active daily flow of a large quantity of old, often rare and endlessly fascinating investment worthy genuinely old objects of various kinds. The intrinsic appeal is what matters first, the medium comes second.

We update our large and ever expanding online inventory every single day. We stand behind everything we sell, all items are shipped with our no-quibble 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee! As soon as you shop with us, we are family and are on your side.

We look forward to having you join our always growing global community of happily satisfied friends with whom we do business.
