J.A. After almost fifty years of collecting I have to say that my best discovery is not an individual dagger or item of militaria, but Bill himself.Bill is now my "go to guy" when I have an item to tick off my bucket list of military collectibles.Having dealt with many dealers across the decades I can say without hesitation that Bill and the stock he offers are amongst the cream of the crop.What Bill provides is great customer service, authenticity, quality and value for money. His knowledge of the subject is superb, and his enthusiasm for the hobby is such that he will dedicate as much of his time to discussing a purchase of a modest few pounds, as he will to a major investment of a few thousand. Amongst dealers this is a real rarity in my experience. In short if you're looking for great communication, honesty and purchases which will delight, Bill is your man! Thanks Bill for helping me to acquire some of the finest quality items within my collection. Your descriptions on your website have never been less than 100% spot on, and I really appreciate that the price is always the bottom line, inclusive of P&P.
S.H.; I can thoroughly recommend purchasing any item from Bill Holden Militaria. I’m a relatively new collector & Bills help & advice has been invaluable to me & much appreciated. Totally honest, a great guy to deal with & along with a 100% guarantee & good prices, you cannot go wrong!
R. Lancashire ; Brilliant no problems at all very good items too.
F.S. Mc Carrick; I Bought an S.A. dagger last year from Mr Holden it is pride of place in my display very pleased indeed it came with guarantee as well
Thank you for viewing my website
Kind Regards, Bill Holden.
