Terms & Conditions
Postage and Packing
We do not charge for postage and packing. All orders are sent FREE of charge.
We will endeavour to despatch your order within 48 hours of you placing the order with us.
Methods of Payment and Trading Currency
We accept most Credit, Debit and Charge cards at NO EXTRA COST to the buyer. Payments are processed through a third party provider to ensure
maximum security for our customers. We also accept Bank Transfers and cheques.
All stamps sold are offered on a "NO QUIBBLE, FULLY REFUNDABLE" basis provided they are returned within 14 days of receipt and in good order.
We guarantee all stamps sold as genuine and accurately described. We have a comprehensive reference collection which we regularly use for the
comparison of shades and printings and consult recognised philatelic experts on more difficult countries (for example early Transvaal and
Transjordan). We do recognise that some collectors may wish to have a second opinion and are prepared to offer an "Extension" for a certificate on
any stamp or set priced over £150, which we sell within one year of purchase. We recommend BPA Expertising Ltd, PO Box 1141, Guildford, Surrey,
Condition and Price
We aim to supply stamps of the very finest quality with no faults such as creases, poor centering, short perforations, thins and tone or rust marks,
which are offered by some dealers at cheaper prices. All unmounted, never hinged stamps are as described with full original gum. Very fine mint
stamps have original gum with traces of a previous hinge mark. Very fine used stamps are for examples, where they exist, with circular datestamp
postmarks and not slogan/wavy line cancels. Imperforate stamps are supplied with full clear margins on all sides.
Unlike many other dealers we do not have a minimum order.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
All stamps are sold under the 1995 rules for "Global Accounting" and are free from VAT.
