Consignment & Appraisal of Antique Militaria

The War Front is proud to offer its metropolitan Portland OR & Seattle WA area customers consignment, sale & appraisal services of militaria and WWI, WWII, Vietnam and other military conflict memorabilia and collectibles. Stumbled upon an old trunk in the attic? We can do the research and give you a fair market estimate and consign your items to place them with a collector or enthusiast who will cherish them for the years to come. 

Appraisals can be performed in person ONLY by appointment. You do not have to consign the item with us but if you wish to do so, the appraisal fee is then waived. In return you are insured that:

- Your item will be stored with us properly and safely.

- No hassling with Craigslist, frustrating shipping experiences or Ebay fees for you to worry about.

- No suspensions of social media accounts or Ebay confiscating your item during shipping and reselling it through their own auction house! (it happens... a LOT)

- Take advantage of over 40 years combined of knowledge in militaria.

- Benefit from our huge network of collectors and buyers we've built over the years. 

- You set your own final value. We will make a recommendation, you make the final decision.

- No piles of uniforms or dirty dusty shelves! Our store is a clean establishment and we will treat your heirloom with the dignity it deserves. 

- We find a great home for your family heirloom or the collections that mattered to your loved one and pass it on to the RIGHT person.


If you are in a hurry, consignment isn't the only option. If you are in need of cash and do not wish to take the consignment route, send us a message below with your information and we can see if your item is the right fit for our direct purchase program and get you on your way with more room in your closet to boot!


PLEASE NOTE - Due to the absolutely overwhelming demand, WE DO NOT GIVE FREE APPRAISALS on items no matter how insistent you are unless your intent is to sell to us and it is established and confirmed. We also do not give price quotes on items you wish to sell  over the phone or by text unless there is an determined and verified intent to sell.  Over 80% of items have to be handled in person in order to truly assess their value anyways, we would not be doing you a favor if we did it. We appreciate people's confidence in our expertise and hope you will support our small business by purchasing an appraisal or certificate of authenticity or trusting us with your items.

Appraisal Fees

- $25.00 per item. We will provide you with a description and purpose, the era it was used & an estimated value. Large estates, and appraisal of more than FIVE items contact us for an estimate.

- Price of research and appraisal is waived if the item is consigned with us or purchased.
