Please read and bear in mind the following policies before actually bidding:
Description of the items
All stamps are described to the best of my knowledge. I always illustrate the auction with clear, large photos (usually 600 dpi for single stamps, front and back). However, if you want an even larger photo for a certain auction of mine, please ask it (by sending me a message), and I will be glad to provide it. As general guidelines regarding descriptions, the condition of the items will be described as accurate as possible. All of the generally accepted major flaws which are not always visible in the pictures, regardless of the resolution (e.g. thins, etc.) will be mentioned in the description if they exist. Flaws which are clearly visible in the pictures, like missing perfs., tears, creases (especially on the back of the stamps), obvious soiling/toning, short margins on one or more sides, reinforced perfs. for multiples, etc. might not always be mentioned in the description and they alone do not constitute an acceptable reason in case of a return. Some "flaws" which are not uniformly accepted as being so, like paper adhesion on the back of a stamp, off-sets, natural gum skips or wrinkles, heavy hinging, etc. might not always be described. Repaired stamps will be described as such in all of the instances where the repair(s) is/(are) detectable and further details might not necessarily be given. Items described as repaired are not returnable on the basis of condition reasons. Returns are accepted for stamps which are found to be other than described, considering the conditions mentioned above.
Authenticity of the items
All of the items I am selling are guaranteed to be authentic and accurately identified, including the identification of their colour or shade. In case any of the items I have sold will turn out not to be authentic, I will offer the buyer a full refund, including the cost of shipping, the cost of the expertisation (including all the fees associated with it) and any auxiliary fees/costs which might have incurred during the transaction, in a maximum of 15 days from the moment I have received back the item (which is compulsory to be returned by registered mail). The ONLY acceptable proof for a refund in case of a return will be a negative certificate issued by a recognised and well-known expert or committee. No exceptions from this rule are accepted whatsoever. In case of the items which have the terms "sold as is" included in the description, no return will be accepted on the basis of authenticity matters. Items accompanied by certificates of authenticity or signed by various experts (not having undecipherable, unknown or bogus signatures, but signatures of well-known experts, and having this mentioned in the description), are considered to be universally genuine and no counter-expertise is accepted in this case, whatsoever. All sales which fall within this latter category are FINAL, and no return is accepted. Also, in case of certificates describing the condition of the item, this alone constitutes the description of that particular item. As a general guideline, the items I'm selling and which are accompanied by certificates of authenticity always have those certificates issued by well-recognised experts or committees.
Bidding implies agreeing unconditionally with the following payment and shipping conditions (if you need special arrangements, please ask before bidding):
Payment has to REACH ME in a maximum of 2 weeks!
I always send out an eBay invoice to each of my customers right after the auction has ended, containing all the payment and shipping details he/she might need. Thank you for being so patient and waiting for it prior to asking any payment and shipping-related questions.
$ 5 - Worldwide (unless otherwise indicated in the shipping tab of the auction page)
I ship only registered letters, often with receipt of delivery (International Avis de Réception) - depending on the value. Shipping combined for multiple purchases! Stamps will be shipped on album pages (where shown like that) or on stockcards otherwise (or, in boxes if shown like that, etc.).
