Since 1965, Fagan Arms has purchased tens of thousands of antique swords. Our expertise is second to none and our experience in the market gives you, the seller a cutting edge advantage. Auction houses deal mainly in antique guns, with a peripheral knowledge of edged weapons and armor. They charge commissions to the buyer and seller as well as related fees for photography, insurance and storage. At Fagan Arms, we issue payment in full within 48 hours and you are through within a few days from your decision to sell.
