About Jim Stanley & Associates (
I buy, collect and sell Civil War relics!
My specialty includes excavated and non-excavated buttons & plates, excavated pistols & swords, IDís and corps badges, superb images, great-content soldier letters and other unique, rare & colorful paper.

I have been collecting Civil War material since I was 12, or since 1978. I am on the board of the Civil War Dealers and Collectors Association and am a member of the Company of Military Historians. I can cheerfully provide references or additional information about me upon request.

Iím very happy to go shopping for you. If there is an item you are serious about buying, and I donít have it, ask anyway. I may be able to find it for you. Send me your "want" lists! Some people email me every few months just to remind me they are looking for a particular item, regiment or whatever. I donít mind! It helps keep your interests foremost in my mind!

                                  Need cash??
Please keep me in mind when selling single items or collections. I pay extremely fair dealer prices and am particularly keen to acquire top quality buttons and plates, dug or nondug!

TO CONTACT ME: Please email unless you absolutely must use the phone. Because of my school, family obligations and church responsibilities, I just donít have time for lengthy telephone conversations. And I never do appraisal over the phone. Itís not fair to you or me. Email ( is the best way to reach me. Again, if you donít know how to use email or have no access to it, then please call, leave a message and I will try my very best to get back to you. Thanks so much for understanding.
