"I have known Paul for about 18 months when I started collecting. As a newer collector, Paul freely gave his time and experience to ensure I didn't get steered wrong. I purchased a nice SS dagger from him and was very satisfied with his accurate description, price and customer service. Whether your a seasoned collector or a new one like me you will have a great buying experience if you stick with Paul. If you have any questions concerning Paul feel free to contact me."

"I recently had the privilege of dealing with Paul concerning a world war II item I wanted to sell. He was honest and efficient during every facet of the transaction. He always replied quickly to my emails and gave very complete instructions as to how to ship the item for his final approval. The price he quoted me for the item was very fair, and the money was transferred to my account the next day after he received the item. I could not have asked for a smoother transaction."

"Your honest pricing and description of the dagger, as well as the photo's showing the small blemishes of time were right on. I got what I wanted.........a nice dagger in good condition. Not a perfect museum piece............but not corroded junk either. I got my money's worth! I would gladly refer anyone interested in these type of collectibles to Lakesidetrader. You folks are fair and honest."

"I just thought I'd let you know that I received my Heller SA Dagger earlier today, and I am 100% satisfied with it! It's exactly what I wanted. The owner-ground blade, along with remains of the inscription really speaks of its history, just as I like best. Thanks a bunch! I'd also like to tell you that I truly appreciate the quality of the pictures you provide for the items on your website, as well as the highly detailed and honest descriptions. Both are truly second to none when it comes to online dealers. Your high resolution close-ups always let me know exactly what I'm getting, before I ever get it. I'm sure this isn't the first time you've received such a compliment, but I'm also sure you don't mind reading it again. Thanks again, and I'm sure I'll buy more from you in the future. I'll also continue to recommend you to any collectors I meet."

"... closing the estate so you can understand I was under pressure to obtain fair value for these. Sending them across the pond concerned me but after speaking with you I went with my instincts. I was surprised at how easy it all was... Thank you for your fast wire payment and for all your help and advice."
