Guarantee
        
We guarantee all stamps sold as genuine and accurately described. We have a comprehensive reference collection which we regularly
         use for the comparison of shades and printings and consult recognised philatelic experts on more difficult countries (for example early
         Transvaal and Transjordan). We do recognise that some collectors may wish to have a second opinion and are prepared to offer an
         "Extension" for a certificate on any stamp or set priced over 150, which we sell within one year of purchase. We recommend BPA
         Expertising Ltd, PO Box 1141, Guildford, Surrey, GU5 OWR.
Condition and Price
         
We aim to supply stamps of the very finest quality with no faults such as creases, poor centering, short perforations, thins and tone or
         rust marks which are offered by some dealers at cheaper prices. All unmounted, never hinged stamps are as described with full original
         gum. Very fine mint stamps have original gum with traces of a previous hinge mark. Very fine used stamps are for examples, where they
         exist, with circular datestamp postmarks and not slogan/wavy line cancels. Imperforate stamps are supplied with full clear margins on all
         sides.
Minimum Order
         
Unlike many other dealers we do not have a minimum order.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
         
All stamps are sold under the 1995 rules for "Global Accounting" and are free from VAT.
