We are one of the nation's leading full time dealers in War Between the States autograph and manuscript memorabilia. And we are one of the very few firms specializing exclusively in this type of material.
With over 45 years combined experience in the field, plus a heritage of WBTS Generals, our firm is in a unique position to help clients and their pursuit and acquisition of WBTS memorabilia. Brian is a lifetime member of The Sons of Confederate Veterans, Military Order, Stars and Bars, and a re-enactor in the 21st North Carolina Infantry. Both are longtime members of The MSS, UACC, APS, and CSA.
Both have published over 250articles and booklets on WBTS Military and postal history, with Brian winning the coveted CSA August Dietz Award for writing and research three times and becoming a lifetime member of The Bonnie Blue Society for scholarly research and published literature in the Confederate Field. Maria has earned the Bonnie Blue Society Medal for her role in the preservation of Southern History.
Brian has had over 20 years professional experience in the authentication field and does consulting and certification in such for many of the nation's leading dealers, auction houses, and expertization societies. Backed by a reference collection and a large library of books on the War, certificates of authentication are available upon request.
Our firm issues four catalogs per year (usually over 250 WBTS items) and participates in over twelve major WBTS shows throughout the U.S. A large portion of business is done by mail, telephone, and fax contact as we maintain a large and constantly changing stock of material.
All of the above insures our clients service and reliability second to none in the industry. We look forward to working with clients and building and developing their collections. Don't hesitate to contact us with your want lists to utilize our service and expertise, or conversely if you have material for sale.
