Terms of Sale

Return Policy

We offer a 14 day return policy to insure customer satisfaction.


All stamps are guaranteed to be genuine unless otherwise noted. If the stamp is going to be sent for certification please let us know at the time of the payment so we can extend the period of the return policy.

If the certificate is returned as "not genuine", we will refund the certification cost up to $75.00 plus we will give you full refund on the stamp. The inability of the Expert Committee to render an opinion does not mean that the stamp is fake. In such cases a refund will be issued for the stamp but not the certification costs.

Shipping Charges

To U.S. destinations: $3.00
To International destinations:$4.00.
Larger, or heavier items (for example sheets of "Personal Stamps") are subject to extra cost, charged at our cost. For items over $99.00 Registered Mail or Priority signature is required. We reserve the right to require Registered Mail for "high-risk" countries. For Registered Mail add $11.50. For priority signature confirmation add $7.70. Items sent by unsecured mail are sent at buyers risk. Will usually ship within 5 business days. We will combine items within reason to save on shipping costs.

Deferred Payment (Layaway) Plan

Make interest free monthly payments, and we will set aside the stamps or covers you want. An easy way to get those scarce items you may never see again! (Payment plans available for orders over $300.)

All items offered Subject to Prior Sale

We make every effort to keep our on-line database up to date, however, since we also do stamp shows and sell by mail, it is possible that items may sell before we have a chance to make updates. When you order, you will receive two emails from us -- an "Order Verification" that lets you know that we received your order, and a "Final Invoice" with any adjustments, as well as payment instructions.


We accept payment by PayPal, cash, check, Money Order or credit card. We accept VISA, Mastercard and American Express credit cards. In most cases we do not wait for checks to clear before shipping. We may, at our discretion, require time for check clearance if we have not done business together before or the check is for a significant amount.
