Returns & Refunds
We make an effort to capture detailed photographs and write accurate descriptions for our items, however we also understand that nothing quite compares to an in-hand inspection. Our customers enjoy a three-day inspection period. Should an item arrive not as described, CIRCA1941 will issue a full, money-back refund upon the unaltered item's safe return.
We understand the concerns that may come with buying items online, so rest assured, every item offered for sale by CIRCA1941 is guaranteed to be of original, wartime production. Upon request, a Certificate of Authenticity will be included in the sale. Items are sold only as historic collectibles, with the intention the buyer does not plan to do anything with them other than to display them. Thus, we do not allege that: helmets conform to any safety standard, uniform sizes match their tags (tailoring may have occurred), canteens are safe from which to drink, etc.
