Scott #248 Used Negative "N" Cancel


Please examine stamp and cover photos carefully because readily obvious condition issues, such as short or pulled perfs, gum skips, or poor centering, may not be mentioned.  We do try to mention all less noticeable problems.

Combining Shipments:

We do combine shipments whenever possible.  However, to be sure to get the combined shipping discount please either wait for a combined invoice BEFORE PAYING, or use the eBay shopping cart and click on "Request Total From Seller" BEFORE PAYING.  You might not get a combined shipping discount if multiple items are paid for and processed individually. 

This item is being offered at our best price.  We're sorry, but we will not respond to requests for lower prices.

Stamps and covers are shipped securely, using stiffeners, and can only be mailed as packages.  Please take this cost into consideration.

TERMS OF SALE - Please Read

By either purchasing this item or bidding in an auction the buyer/bidder agrees to the following terms:

  • We make every attempt to describe the item(s) thoroughly and accurately, including any flaws.  Do not expect or assume that there is any warranty. 
  • We do not run "Best Offer" listings.  Please do not ask us to accept an offer that is lower than either an auction's starting bid or the fixed price, or to make a side deal outside of eBay. 
  • If you have any questions or concerns about the item(s), please ask us before you buy or bid.
  • You will receive the exact item(s) pictured.
  • Do not ask or expect us to cancel a bid or sale because you made a mistake.


  • We only accept PayPal. 
  • Payment is expected within 3 days of the end of the auction unless you contact us to make other arrangements. Non-payments are automatically taken over by eBay for collection.
  • New Jersey Residents will be charged 7% Sales Tax.  By law, tax is based on both the selling price and shipping/handling.


  • Items will be shipped by the United States Postal Service 1st class or Priority mail. 
  • Items will usually be shipped within 1 business day of receiving cleared payment.
  • We only charge the actual shipping cost plus a small fee for protective packaging and handling.
  • Buyers will be provided tracking numbers upon shipment.
  • Delivery Confirmation is included in the cost of shipping.
  • Regretfully, we cannot use real stamps for postage as we are required to provide a tracking number to eBay which we can only do using electronic postage.


    Effective January 27, 2013 the United States Postal Service has drastically raised the rates for international mail, in some cases almost doubling it. Please check the shipping charges for your country carefully BEFORE bidding and contact us if necessary for a quote.
  • We will not falsify customs forms to avoid duties. For example, do not ask us to enter a lower price or to mark the package as "gift" as we will not do it.
  • First Class Mail International does NOT include tracking or insurance.  We are not responsible for any First Class International package that is lost, stolen, or damaged in transit, and no claims can be filed.  If you want tracking and insurance outside the U.S. you must request Priority Mail International or Express Mail International.  Some restrictions may apply depending upon the country of destination.


  • Stamps and covers are sold "as is" but may be returned if:
    • a stamp has been identified by the wrong Scott Catalogue number, or;
    • there are serious faults or condition issues not evident in the pictures nor described in the listing, or;
    • there is a negative report from an approved expertizing service (Philatelic Foundation, APS or PSE only) which certifies that the identification or condition is other than described.  The cost of expertizing will be reimbursed only for items with negative reports and selling for more than $100.00.
    • Encased items are not accepted for return.
    • Proof of the inability of a competent authority to express an opinion is not grounds for return.
    • If there are multiple items in one lot, only the entire lot may be returned.
  • The return of a stamp or cover other than the one purchased will be considered theft and will be reported to the buyer's local law enforcement agency and to the United States Postal Service mail fraud unit.  High resolution scans of the front and backs of all stamps sold have been made for identification purposes.
  • All approved returns must be done within 14 days of receipt of the item unless accompanied by a negative certificate.
