Up for your consideration is this nice old vintage 1945 signed Balfour OAW and as pictured.
The gold tone surface is in overall nice conditon consistent with age and use. It is a size 8 on sizer. I do not clean vintage jewelry so I will leave that up to the buyer if desired. Please look closely at the pictures as they represent a big part of my description, ask questions if necessary.
Nice vintage condition
Ebay has made changes to shipping rules so insurance is no longer available with USPS 1st class in the US.
1st class shipping in the US is 3.00 with delivery confirmation uninsured
Priority shipping in the US is 6.95 with delivery confirmation and insurance.
This auction qualifies for combined shipping with all other auctions ending October 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st only. If you intend on getting combined shipping for multiple wins you need to contact seller upon winning your 1st auction and let seller know they are bidding on other items, then request total due upon completion. Buyers that win multiple auctions should not use ebays checkout as it will not combine shipping accuately and automatically.
All items must be paid for by November 4th, no exceptions, unpaid items may be relisted and nonpaying bidders may be added to my blocked bidder list. Please do not bid if you can not pay in this time frame or contact me before bidding.
I usually have 75 to 150 jewelry auctions (3, 5, 7 and 10 day) all ending on Thursdays, Fridays Saturdays, Sundays, and maybe a few on Monday and Tuesday. I will gladly combine shipping on multiple wins for auctions ending during the SAME WEEKS AUCTIONS ENDING CONSECUTIVELY so check out my other auctions.
PLEASE READ THIS AUCTION IN ITS ENTIRETY INCLUDING TERMS OF SALE
DO NOT BID UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE SO. I WANT BUYERS TO BE HAPPY WITH THEIR PURCHASE BUT I CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT RETURNS AND REFUND MONEY DUE TO BUYER ERROR
Payment is due NO LATER THAN DUE DATE POSTED IN AUCTION DESCRIPTION SO PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THAT DATE. Buyer needs to contact seller at the close of winning an auction if they are bidding on other auctions and want to combine shipping. COMBINED SHIPPING DATES ARE POSTED IN THE AUCTION DESCRIPTION. We accept payments via Paypal. If you do not have a paypal account but do have another form of payment accepted by Ebay please contact me before you bid. Any item not paid for by the due date may be reported to ebay and seller reserves the right to cancel sale and or relist item after due date. Please do not avoid communication as contact seller link is just a click away.
All items are carefully and securely packed for safe shipping. As always all single or small collections of jewelry are wrapped in tissue or put in zip lock bags and put in gift boxes and shipped in padded mailers or boxes. The flat rate shipping charge includes ebay shipping fees, USPS shipping fees and the cost of the safe packing materials, there is no handling fee as labor is free. I SO DO NOT PROFIT ON MY SHIPPING CHARGES AND IN MANY CASES LOSE MONEY SO IF YOU DO NOT LIKE MY UPFRONT FEES PLEASE DO NOT BID. We will gladly combine shipping on multiple wins for auctions ending over up to 5 consecutive days. For combined shipping please do not use ebays checkout as it may not give you a combined rate, please request total due from seller and allow seller 24 hours to reply. If you do not agree with upfront flat rate shipping fees please do not bid or make arrangements to pick up your items, LOCAL PICK UP IS FREE.
DOMESTIC SHIPPING: All 1st class parcels are sent with delivery confirmation uninsured. Parcels under 13 oz ship 1st class unless buyer request priority shipping. Parcels over 13 oz will ship priority and all parcels over 1 lb will ship by weight or in a flat rate Priority box in the US.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International bidders agree to pay the Flat Rate Shipping as stated in the auction and are welcome to email for combined shipping rates. THE FLAT RATE FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS BASED ON ESTIMATES FROM THE USPS WEBSITE. FLAT RATE SHIPPING INCLUDES THE COST OF SHIPPING MATERIALS, USPS AND EBAY SHIPPING FEES. THE FLAT RATE SHIPPING FEE DOES NOT COVER THE COST OF LABOR AS THAT IS ALWAYS FREE. Combined shipping may require Priority shipping which is up to the discretion of the seller. Parcels sent 1st class international are not insurable or trackable AND buyers wanting 1st class instead of priority to save money should not open ebay or paypal claims for item not recieved as that would not be fair. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS AGREE TO ASSUME THE RISK OF 1ST CLASS SHIPPING IF BUYER WANTS TO SAVE MONEY AND WAVE PRIORITY SHIPPING.
All sales are final unless items are grossly misrepresented. Items are described to the best of my ability and major flaws will be pointed out( either in writing or visible in the pictures or both.) All items are used or vintage and can be expected to show some wear. Any materials are described by appearance and not content. Hallmarks, makers marks and metal marks such as gold and silver are disclosed but not guaranteed authentic or fact. We do not test gems or metals. All items are sold as found, I do not repair or clean items and leave that to the winning bidder if desired.
I have been buying and selling on ebay for over 13 years with over 10,000 transactions. Most have been pleasant but a few not so great. I take pride in being fair as a buyer and a seller and hope to limit my ebay experiances to pleasant ones.
