We are pleased to develop an exposition concept for you and hire the best experts to implement your project. In our company you can not only buy your favorite item, but also order restoration work of any items from your collection. We have unique knowledge and experience in the restoration of uniforms, equipment, awards, knives, etc. We also provide consultations, carry out historical classification and attribution of items from your collection, and provide expert examinations on the originality of historical objects with issuing Certificate of Authenticity.


All items for sale have historical value and have a lifetime guarantee of their originality (unless otherwise specified in the description).


Most Espenlaub Militaria items are purchased directly from World War II veterans and their families or found in the trophy warehouses of the former Soviet Union, purchased from private museums and collectors from around the world, and found at antique exhibitions and fairs. We have valuable contacts in the USA, Germany, Great Britain, Finland, Russia, Belarus, Holland, France and other countries of the world. Several trips are made around the world every year in hunting for new treasures!


The main focus of our work are items of military uniforms, insignia, awards and equipment of the Third Reich and the Red Army. In most cases, all these objects carry different symbols, but this does not in any way reflect our political views.


The sale and demonstration of historical objects and symbols should be never associated with the propaganda of forbidden ideologies and political regimes. We do not support any political ideas, and our collectibles are intended only for scientific and historical interest.
