Michael Simens Philosophy "I am a fellow collector of Civil War Weapons and Artifacts. As such, I am more interested in acquiring new customers who share these interests than in making a sale. I try to make certain that every customer, buyer or seller, be dealt with fairly and with complete satisfaction in every transaction. We offer our clients the best guarantee in the Historical Artifacts field as explained on our Terms and Conditions page and we buy Civil War Swords and Sabers on a regular basis. No collection is too big or too small for our consideration. I am confident that our network of websites is the best choice for sellers considering divestment of any artifact, collection or estate due to our daily world-wide sales presence. 
 

NOTE: The items on this website are antique collectibles manufactured prior to 1899 and are considered "obsolete" and "antiques" by the United States Government. Please refer to our "Terms and Conditions" page for further information.
