Please scroll all the way down! Also, be sure to check both the JRB&M website and the Weinand Militaria website weekly for items from this very fine collection from New Jersey. Pictured below is Michael Galati’s collection, one of a number of collections purchased by Tom and Ron in 2018!

The following photograph was provided to us by fellow collector Jerry Shores and visibly illustrates the value of JRB&M original Solingen parts for a dagger repair. Please note the near MINT condition of Jerry’s 1st Model Luftwaffe after ordering and replacing one of our original 1st Model Luftwaffe leather covered scabbard shells. The switching of scabbard shells was accomplished by collector Shores at home. Consider for a moment the value of this original dagger “before and after” the exchange of the scabbard shells!

Notice to the Many JRB&M Loyal Customers:

Due to her outstanding, exemplary performance since joining the JRB&M firm, Miss Lena BrownEyes has been officially promoted to the position of JRB&M General Manager. Lena is and has been the recipient of innumerable “kudos” from JRB&M customers living both in the U.S. and from around the world. She has handled countless JRB&M orders with accuracy and precision. We all congratulate Lena on her professional and well-deserved advancement. When one of my employees receives more compliments from customers than myself, it is definitely time for both a pay raise AND a promotion.        LTC (Ret) Thomas M. Johnson, President, JRB&M.
