"MAX CERTIFIED DEALER PROGRAM"
the hobby of militaria continues to grow in popularity, unfortunately,
so have reproduction items being sold as original. Since its inception,
the MAX Show has required reproductions to be labeled as such,
but, despite this rule, there have been infractions. Misrepresentation
of this sort is the number one enemy of the militaria hobby.
Tragic realization with resultant financial loss can be very
discouraging. In recent years, many potential collectors found
they had unwittingly purchased an item that had been altered
or was newly made. Once having fallen into this trap, some never
returned and without new blood coming up, there will be no buyers
for the collections many of us have worked our entire lives to
A few years ago, MAX decided it was high
time for our hobby to cleanse itself, and decided to do something
positive to deal with the problem. By incorporating a new rule,
known as "RULE 11," into the MAX Show rules, each dealer
agrees to guarantee the authenticity of any item sold at his
or her tables, for at least the duration of the Show.
Collectors should make sufficient time
to "inspect" and "authenticate" their purchase
prior to leaving the Show. If the item is found to be not authentic,
the dealer will be expected to either refund the purchaser's
purchase price, or work out some other mutually agreed upon resolution.
Should disputes arise or should the dealer not have the funds
on hand, he will have 90 days to satisfactorily clear up the
matter. Unresolved complaints will absolutely result in the offending
dealer being denied tables at future MAX Shows. We do not feel
this is much to ask at our Show. It is the only way to encourage
the entrance of new collectors, and assure the future of our
In addition to the new "SHOW REFUND
RULE 11", MAX instituted a long overdue first. We established
a "MAX CERTIFIED DEALER" program. The program follows
simple guidelines, similar to the thousands of neighborhood Better
Business Bureaus designed to promote consumer confidence throughout
the United States. Dealers, who are accepted to become a MAX
CERTIFIED DEALER, are issued a distinctive plaque to display
on their table at all shows. Display of the plaque will tell
potential customers you are a professional who guarantees the
authenticity of your merchandise-not just at the MAX Show, but
at every show. A MAX CERTIFIED DEALER is an honest businessman
who can be trusted. He is a person who conducts business with
fairness, integrity and honor. We have established a Board of
Experts who will meet and "vet" a questionable artifact
or attempt to mediate a problem, should there be a disagreement.
The Board will make recommendations to resolve the situation.
A file of unresolved complaints against dealers has been maintained
by MAX, and is available by written request for the use by the
Our Board of Experts is a mixture of
respected dealers and knowledgeable collectors in our hobby.
A list of the MAX Board of Experts may be obtained from the MAX
Promotions Headquarters office. A dealer wishing to join the
MAX CERTIFIED DEALER program may apply at this year's MAX Show.
Upon acceptance, plaques will be issued at the Show. The fee
to join the program is $25.00 per year or you can purchase a
Lifetime Membership for $100. The MAX Show promoters are eligible
to join the MAX CERTIFIED Dealer program, but cannot serve as
a member of the Board of Experts.
It is hoped that these positive steps
will produce a continued bright future for militaria collecting.
