Vietnam War

One of the bloodiest, most brutal, and most protested wars in the world was the Vietnam War. While the war was fought with a coalition of nations, the United States bore the brunt of the war effort. The Vietnam War inspired a variety of memoirs, works of art, and military surplus collectibles that stand as remnants of a dark and divided time in our nation. A wide variety of new uniforms, medals, and military equipment were also produced during the Vietnam War.

Most American and Allied forces at the time were using weapons that are not available to civilians; however, many fighting men recovered valuable collectors’ weapons like the Chinese T53 bolt action rifle and the Russian or Chinese SKS rifle. Other collectibles and rarities include enemy equipment, web gear, and uniforms.
