The starting bid in my auctions is always low, often just 99 cents for items worth far more than that, and there's never a reserve. I try to offer irresistible lots with clear pictures and accurate descriptions. Then you can decide for yourself just what each lot is worth. Good luck bidding!

Returns & Refunds.
Please email me if there's a problem with your stamps. Any lot not correctly described can be returned intact for a full refund for one week after the buyer receives the item. If the buyer notifies me at the time of payment that she intends to seek certification, then I'll extend the refund offer until the results are in. However, I will not pay any expertization fees.
About the stamps.
Collections & accumulations.
Unless the item description specifically says otherwise, the following is true of all my stamp collections and accumulations.
- The stamps in the scan(s) are the very same stamps you will receive, though all stamps may not be pictured in a large lot.
- If a catalog value is indicated, it comes from the latest edition of Scott when that item was uploaded to ebay, and I looked them up myself.
- Where there are watermark, perf, paper or other varieties, I have either confirmed the identification myself, or I've priced it as the cheapest type.
- Lots contain some duplication unless labeled "all-different" or "diff".
- Stamps identified as MNH are flawless and post office fresh.
- Mint stamps have original gum (if issued with gum), but may have hinge marks or remnants and/or pencil marks. A small percentage of stamps in a mint lot may be gumless.
- All different lots that include both mint and used stamps will often include one of each for some stamps.
- Most stamps are sound, but especially in older material there may be some faults -- thins, bad perfs, creases, etc. I try to weed out the real losers, and mention any big problems in my description, but I don't have time to closely scrutinize every stamp in a collection.
- Display cards or stockcards in the scans are not necessarily included with the stamps.
Singles & Sets.
- I try to accurately identify and describe stamps and sets, and to point out all faults or problems. If there's a problem, email me and we'll find a way to solve it.
- Unless otherwise stated, catalog numbers and values are from the latest edition of Scott when that item was uploaded to ebay.
- If a stamp is identified as a variety (watermark, perf, paper, etc.) that means I've checked it myself.
- Scan colors. I do my best to make the colors in my scans accurately show the colors of the stamps -- when viewed on my monitor, using my video card. Colors may display somewhat differently on different hardware, with different settings. I cannot guarantee that stamp colors will be exactly what you see on your monitor with your video card.
