charges as well as any chance of damage through the mail.

obviously) for a full refund.If the

- Expertizing (Non-graded Certs).I
do my best to identify and describe a stamp correctly, to include any faults or
problems that may be on the stamp.However, that doesnít mean I donít miss something from
time-to-time.Should the buyer decide to
send a stamp to an expertizing agency for a certification, please let me know
within a week of receiving the stamp(s).Should the stamp come back as not described, return the stamp for a full
refund and I will also refund the cost of the cert.
- Expertizing (Graded Certs).Same
as above except I will not refund the cost of the cert for a grade that doesnít
meet with the buyerís liking.As all
collectors and philatelists should know, while there is a standard in the Scott
catalog, grading is still very subjective.
- I will accept certificates from the following expertizing agencies.If the buyer wishes to use some other agency, please contact me first.
