The Ruptured Duck  

  

The Ruptured Duck is a third generation family-owned and operated on-line mail order business. We deal in all types of authentic German, Japanese, and American military memorabilia from the WWI and WWII periods. Every item we sell is guaranteed for life to be original, having been produced in the period prior to May of 1945.  Our staff has over six decades of experience buying, selling, appraising, consulting and collecting the souvenirs from that very important period of American history. We deal in many different items, including but not limited to helmets, uniforms, headgear, medals, flags, edged weapons, field gear and belt buckles.
