Established in 1989, JC Americana specializes in items from the American Revolution through the Civil War. We have purchased items previously owned by presidents, generals, and highly decorated war heroes.
We have helped to build some of the finest collections of American militaria, both private and institutional.
We are constantly traveling the country, paying top prices for antique guns, swords, uniforms, flags, documents, and anything related to a soldier's life. We purchase antique military items outright from private collections, descendants, and at auction for inventory. We also offer items on consignment and will consider any trades.
We are interested in all items, regardless of condition or completeness.
Premium prices paid on mint condition or historically important pieces.
WE BUY IT ALL.
J. Christopher Mitchell, president and owner of J C Americana, has been an expert appraiser on the highly acclaimed Antiques Roadshow for the past nine years. The Antiques Roadshow is PBS's top rated television series with over 10 million viewers weekly. Each summer the Antiques Roadshow visits cities across the United States. Roadshow cameras capture discussions between the experts and the owners as they reveal the stories surrounding the objects, culminating in the appraisers' revelation about the object's historical, aesthetic, and market value.
