The owner of Finnmedals is Jani Tiainen, well known by collectors of Finnish Orders & Medals. Member of OMSA, BDOS, OHS, OMRS and Max Certified Dealer. Partner with the Benemerenti auktion in Germany.

The company Finnmedals is a Non-political & items offered for sale are for historical interest and investment only.

Iitems are only sold under the following conditions:

The items are only to be used, for amongst other things, historical research, in respect to that time period of History.

We have hundreds of items at our shop - items that never make it to the web site. If you are looking for something special, please ask or stop by!

Orders, Decorations, Medals - Cross of Liberty, Iron Cross and other interesting items.

Collector is always as a collector. I used to have one of the biggest collections of Finnish Liberation war items, but after prices went up astronomically I started to collect small "projects".

Nowadays I personally collect interesting named medal bars - mostly Finnish or with finnish decorations. In the early 2000 I started to collect 1st Class Iron Crosses 1939.
I had never been extremely interested in third reich items due the requiments in knowledge to be able to get only originals, so I started to collect all the different makers and variations of the EK1 mainly to build knowledge - at this time I have 45, mostly cased and it has teached me a lot about construction methods and tools used by certain makers. And it is a classic Order.

Even I am dealer I am also collector who understands the needs of other collectors. I have very liberal return policy and good lay away plan possibilities.

I have travelled through all major shows for over decade, so I am currently offering world wide selection of Militaria. Feel free to offer us anyhting which is original and in good condition... I have several want lists waiting for dreams to be fulfilled.

You will find a good selection of Finnish, German and other orders, medals, decorations, books and militaria on our internet cataloque which we update twice a month. You can pay securely with credit cards and secure immediate shipment. Upon your order, our system only ¨reserves the money from your card. We will not charge your card before we can confirm that the item is available to you.

We will never carry reproductions - We do not buy, sell or trade with them. Since the reproductions are making collectors life harder and harder avery day.

I have an experience of international trade since the early 90's from medal dealing and later from the Foreign trade Association of Finland, and believe me, thousands of miles long transactions are the postman's problems, not the collector´s.

Buy with confidence and good collecting
