Sell Military Antiques & Surplus at an Estate Sale
There are many veterans throughout Northern Virginia and Maryland. Many of these soldiers brought back souvenirs from battlefields and duty stations on foreign shores. Whether from Germany or Japan, Korea or Vietnam, these items should be put before a military antique specialist prior to putting them up for sale. The value of military antiques is determined by the item’s rarity, age, and historical significance. Whether it is an old helmet, photo album, weapon, or piece of kit, it can be even more valuable if its origin can be pinpointed to a specific date, location, or individual.

Art, Sculptures & More
You don’t always know when a beloved painting is more than just a work of art. Some pieces were crafted by well-known artists who were just starting out. These pieces can be very valuable to collectors who are eager to own a piece of art produced by an artist before they were famous. These pieces require special care to determine when, where, and by whom they were created. It is a process that can be well worth the time invested as you don’t always know when you have a Dali, Rockwell, Warhol, or Parrish on the wall. While it is rare to uncover a previously unknown masterpiece, it does happen from time to time.
The same is true for antique sculptures. Limited edition reproductions are very common in estate auctions. However, each sculpture varies in value depending on how many were produced, the item’s age, its composition, and the item’s overall condition. Reproduced items by Frederic Remington, Marcel Duchamp, Cy Twombly, and others can fetch a premium price as can original sculptures by lesser-known artists.
