Since 1963, Beltrone and Company has served clients including the National Park service, Smithsonian Institution, the White House, U.S. Navy Museum, U.S. Army Museum, Military History Institute, U.S. Cavalry Museum and state and local public and private repositories throughout the nation. Internationally, a new military museum in Algeria was the recipient of a key 19th century artifact.
Today, Beltrone and Company continues to serve the military and history public and private museum community as well as individual collectors, offering artifacts with compelling stories and significant provenance.
We can provide the necessary research at the National Archives and other locations to develop personal stories associated with the artifact, thereby increasing the item’s value. If you do not wish to sell but only want to learn the value of your item or items, our appraisal service may be of interest. The company also offers collection consultation, an appraisal service and assistance in the promotion of exhibits to the media. We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
In 1997, company principals Art and Lee Beltrone, discovered an historic World War II troopship in Virginia’s James River Reserve Fleet. The ship, the General Nelson M. Walker, contained hundreds of graffiti-inscribed berthing canvases from the Vietnam War. These were recovered by the couple and with volunteers incorporated into a current, traveling exhibit.
