We can help you with any licences or permits required.  We just don't have the time to research any more. Distance no problem, we will go to the four corners of the earth for a dig or a dive!

Jay & Jack will be working their way across Europe this week end attending a fair and visiting the diggers and pickers along the way.  They will be going through France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy and Hungary. So they should come back with quite a hoard. Watch this space for details.


Paul as always will be running the shop, ready and waiting to take your orders. Even though the stock may be on the road, we can put it aside until Jack's return or send it to you from where ever he is in Europe if you are really desperate.


Lots of new finds have been added to almost all the categories, so get them while they are there.

Why not grab your self a bargain as some of the items are reduced in price.
The further down the page you go, the more reductions we have made, in order to fund getting new stock.
If you want to see all of the new finds before they make the web site, you could
always come and visit us at our shop or at one of the many fairs and shows we attend.

(It would be a good idea to check with us first, in case the collectables are on the road)

A note about our finds:

The item descriptions are based on our opinion and experience. We are far from experts and will get things wrong from time to time and get taken in by fakes just as many of us may have done.  This is why we offer a 14 day no questions asked refund period in which you can return an item for any reason, so long as it is received in the same condition it was sent.  This way you get to decide if an item is what you think it is.  There are too many armchair experts out there who are all to quick to complain on the forums etc that we have got this wrong or that is fake etc. If we have got something wrong please, please let us know so that we can put it right and learn from the experience.

The battlefield relics we find are mainly from shell holes that were filled with debris and back filled after the war.
Our other sites include a First World War Dressing Station and a Second World War Field Hospital.
Personal effects are found on these sites as they were most likely in the uniforms that were cut off and burned in trash pits.
We only trade with reputable diggers and buy from junk shops and flea markets.
We condemn "Black Digging" and "Night Hawkers" who are profiting from desecrating Ancient Monuments and Grave Sites.  Always ask as many questions as you can about the find and it's location.  If you suspect it is a "Black Relic" please avoid it like the plague.  We will always give as much information on the find location as we can, however sometimes we will use "found near" in order to protect a site that is ongoing.
Always remember when field walking-if you are going to take anything make sure it is only a photograph!

Please speak to us about our layaway plan if you want to pay in instalments.

Check out our adventures page where you can see the photos from our latest adventures digging and diving for relics.
