EMAILING US YOUR ORDER BY ORDER NUMBER AND GIVING US YOUR EMAIL IS A GUARANTEED WAY TO PLACE AN ORDER WHILE WE ARE IN TRANSITION. ALL ITEMS WILL BE HELD THREE DAYS PENDING PAYMENT.
We will be upgrading our site over the next couple months. If you have any issues please call us at 717-264-6834. Be persistent - we will get there.
Include a phone number in any contact  - its helps.
Just for a while we may have to mail you for a picture if missing
on the site. Can even message you one if you have a cell phone.
One small detail we will figure out after  system is upgraded.
You will notice a "password block to fill out when ordering. You can put anything in it - 5 zeros work - we tried it. Haven't figured out why it is there yet!
Now available  8mm MG wood tipped blanks 1600 rounds per case.for WWI and WWII machine guns with blank shredders.
You will start to see some 18th Century material on the site, French and Indian War, Revolutionary War,  Indian artifacts and American Colonial material.
My specialty in collecting was trade material, especially Tomahawks,  Axes and weapons as well as other nice colonial items..
Everything is guaranteed 100% original as described, as with all we sell.
Much of it has a long history and pedigree as to old collections it came out
of dating back into the 1950's and 60's, whose original owners have now passed, . Since I have well over 100 original axes and tomahawks and will list them as time permits. I can email as complete list of things I am going to sell if you have a serious interest. It is a large variety..
Do  NOT send any  payment  until we email you with a total.
We do NOT ask for payment info in the ordering system for several reasons:
FIRST - We are not Amazon with bins full of the same thing weighing the same amount to calculate shipping, especially overseas.  Over 95% of our material is ONE OF  KIND.
SECOND - We have to be sure your requested item (items) are in stock and then calculate shipping for a total  amount. We sell a lot of material with a lot of walk-in customers. The item you may want might have been sold an hour before. It does not happen often but it does happen. We update our site constantly to avoid problems  (at the end of each day) but week-ends often delay this.
THIRD - after 40 years of doing this we want to maintain the personal touch with our customers, Many have questions on the items they order and we like to handle that in a personal manner. We want to continue this practice in an age of automation that denies it.
PREFERABLE METHOD OF PAYMENT IS PAYPAL
IT IS THE MOST SECURE.
We do take credit cards and checks. If using a credit card please
send in split emails for  security purposes or, if possible,
simply call us to do over the phone. We also accept checks and
money orders. Items will be held two weeks for mail in payments.
We do contact you again after two weeks just to be sure payment
did not get lost (which HAS happened).
If you email Great War and receive NO reply within two business
days either my email service is blocking you, or your email provider
is blocking my reply. In either case please  CALL us or or try using
another email account.
We also request you supply us with a phone number in
ANY mail within the U.S. It helps us get back to you.
All messages left on our business phone will be answered ASAP.
Items requested will be held until  we do get back to you.
