About Tanya Ursual

Tanya is the owner of E.G. Ursual, Military Antiquarian Inc., Canada’s leading military dealer.

The company was established by Eugene Ursual in 1977. Tanya joined the firm, on a full-time basis, in 1990.

By turning her attention to bringing the successful medal business online, she created one of the internet’s first user-friendly, fully-functional military source websites at www.medalsofwar.com. With 25 years of experience, Tanya is one of the world’s leading sources of high quality military medals and badges. She is present at most of the international military shows and is privileged to serve as Dix Noonan Webb’s (Auctions) North American representative.

Our History

Located in a suburb just outside of Ottawa, Ontario Canada, the company was founded by Eugene Ursual and established its articles of incorporation in 1977. After a career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Eugene decided to turn his love of military collecting into a full time career. Eugene passed away in 2008.  The business now employs three full-time staff plus our website designer and medal researcher.
