Stahlhelms Military Collectibles was created in the late 1980s after our collection grew so large that we needed to declare ourselves a business and set up at shows to sell off extras. Instead of reducing the collection, setting up as a dealer somehow resulted in our collection and inventory growing. Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, we opened a small antique booth and sold on ebay. We closed the store around 2010 and have slowed on ebay considerably.
In June of 2012, we were given a Willys Jeep that started a new chapter in our collecting saga. We restored the Jeep which can be seen in our events page along with the Mini Jeep which was started in 2014. We now take the two jeeps to local car shows, air shows, reenactments and other related events. Along with the jeeps, we bring different items from our collection to display at the events.
Since our Jeep adventures take up most of our time, we no longer buy and sell as much as we did in the past. We are still looking for items for our displays, so if you have items to sell, please contact us.
Exciting News! I was “picked” by the American Pickers!!! For anyone wondering, YES, it is totally real. We sent some overall pictures of our hoard and they sent a production person out to verify the collection and do a quick interview. All negotiations were done on camera, no prices were discussed before! Awesome experience. Dannielle & Robbie were great as was the entire crew of American Pickers. Watch our episode HERE..
