Please read these Terms of Use carefully before using the website operated by Old Patriot Militaria.

Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you may not access the Service.



If an Item is active on our website and not listed as “sold” or “out of stock,” it is currently available. Items are not held or reserved for customers and are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do not have a “layaway” plan and all items are sold outright with one single paid in full payment. After some time on the website items may be listed as “on-sale” or may be made available at militaria shows. 


All items are guaranteed for life to be original and exactly as described in the description sections of the listings. We ask that all customers read and understand the description for the item(s) they are purchasing. We do not sell fakes, reproductions, “fantasy pieces,” or items that have been altered to the point of ruining their collector value. 


We go to great lengths to inspect and describe each item in depth. The vast majority of items that we sell were used and/or worn by military service members and will show varying degrees of age, wear and use. Items are compared to like items from the same period and given a rating of “Excellent,” “Very Good,” “Good,” “Fair,” “Poor,” and “Relic.” In some cases, we may rate an item as being in “Very Good to Excellent,” “Good to Very Good,” “Fair to Good,” Etc, Etc. If an item should happen to be in “Unissued” or “Mint” Condition this will be noted in the description as well. 

Shipping & Ordering

We are a family business and ship items on a first-come, first-serve basis. We ship as soon as possible after payment is made and an order confirmation is received, which is usually within two to five days business days. Orders may process faster or take a bit longer due to how busy we are at the time of your order. Believe us, we know that you want to receive your purchase right away, so we will be working to ship your items as fast as possible. PLEASE make any special requests regarding your package immediately upon paying for your purchase. We ask that you PLEASE provide a physical address for the delivery of your package other than a post office box. Large, heavy and multiple item orders will ship via United Parcel Service (UPS) within the Continental United States. Smaller orders, international orders, and some single item orders will ship via United States Postal Service (USPS) Priority Mail. In an instance where we can save you money after we have packed your order(s) or if the shipping calculations have been a bit high, we will refund you the difference of the amount you paid and the actual cost of shipping. We do not charge a handling or restocking fee on any orders. YES, we ship Internationally. INTERNATIONAL Purchases Will Ship Via USPS Priority Mail and will be packaged and shipped on the same first-come, first-serve basis as US orders. International customers, please be aware that we have NO control over your country’s customs fees or taxes on incoming packages or the amount of time it takes packages to process through your customs department. Please feel free to provide us with any information that you believe will assist us in helping you receive your package. Information such as the delivery address written in the language of your receiving country can also be helpful. Feel free to contact us at any time with further questions or if you have additional requests or information regarding your package.


Show and Personal Deliveries

As a rule, we do not deliver items to you at shows or any other location and we do not allow personal pick up of items from our location. However, we do understand that this could be the best way and some extreme circumstance, these rules could be bent a little. 


We do not require shipping insurance for any of our packages, but we highly recommend it. We can add insurance to your package for an additional fee after you have checked out and paid for your item. While we firmly believe that none of our customers would do such as thing, if you should happen to skip the insurance option and file a claim to receive a refund of your purchase price through Pay Pal or a credit card chargeback, you will be immediately be removed as a member of our website.


We DO NOT Charge a “Handling Fee,” “Restocking Fee,” Pay Pal Fee, Credit Card Fee or Any Hidden Fees or Charges Related to Any Items that we sell.  


We currently accept credit cards and Pay Pal as forms of payment. We do not accept personal checks or money orders at this time. 


While we will go to extreme lengths to avoid them, mistakes can happen. If we have made a mistake in a listing description, we will give you a full refund of your purchase price only. We ask that you please contact us before returning any item. We also ask that you take some responsibility upon yourself and read the entire description before deciding to buy an item. For instance, if you find that an item has a blemish and this blemish is listed in the description, but you did not read it, we will not give you a refund. However, if there is a blemish and we did not note it in the description or in the photos, we will give you a refund. We do ask for a level of understanding and being reasonable as a collector as well. Refunds are not given based on “buyer’s remorse” or an inappropriate excuse such as “I forgot I already had one,” or “I just found a better one,” are not accepted. We DO NOT GIVE REFUNDS Based on Items Not Fitting You and We DO NOT Give any measurements other than those you see in the description. We are NOT a tailor or costume shop and do not condone the wearing of vintage military items of any type. If you choose to wear any item that you purchase from us, you do so at your own risk. Please rest assured that if we have made a mistake in any way, in any listing, we will do whatever it takes to correct it. Your trust and confidence in us is of the utmost importance.
