Great Britain George Vi High Value Issues, Incl "arms" Set, Cat $100+:
This lot consists of selected George VI issues (1937-1951), all of which carry Scott premium values. Total 2013 catalogue value is about $110.The entire lot is shown on the first scan; the other four images are closeups of the same stamps.For shipping, I'll remove the stamps from the stock page (not included in the lot) and transfer them to a couple 102 cards, which will travel inexpensively in a first-class envelope.
Standard boilerplate to save me from typing everything every week:
I am not a dealer. I’m a hobbyist collector with 50+ years of experience, with particular interest in Scandinavia, Canada, Europe, and the U.S. I have been an APS member for 24 years and have twice been President of our local APS-affiliated stamp club. I collect by buying albums, accumulations, and box lots, keeping what I need, and selling the rest. I’m also in the process of trying to get rid of a lifelong accumulation in closets, bookcases, and file drawers. ing competes with lots of other interests and responsibilities, so I will probably list only a couple items a week, and sometimes none. Descriptions:
When the catalogue value of a stamp is dependent on watermark or perforations, I have either confirmed them myself or cited a catalogue price for the cheapest type. Stamps shown within mounts may be previously hinged by a previous owner. And if I’m reselling someone else’s old album pages, it’s always possible that the original owner misplaced stamps when mounting them. I describe lots to the best of my ability, but I am human and mistakes can happen. Small lots I try to describe in minute detail. For mid-size lots and album pages I try to check stamp backs for gum status and faults, but in a such lots I can’t check or describe everything. Large lots will contain the good and the bad, but usually not the ugly because before I sell lots I weed out (into a wastebasket) grossly faulty stamps (missing pieces etc). Hinge remnants can cover faults; I generally do not remove hinges, so thins there might not be described. When I describe a lot as “unchecked by me” (for shades, varieties, watermarks, papers, cancels etc) it means just that because it’s usually material from countries I don’t collect that came to me in a box lot. Images:
I have not yet figured out how to host images on other sites, so I’m limited to 12 photos. The stamps in the photos are always the exact stamps you will receive; I do not post photos of reference stamps. I photograph using available light on a dining room table, so sometimes shades of color are not perfectly reproduced; I try to describe any variance in the written text if it’s important. Binders, manila or Vario pages, and display cards shown in photos may not be shipped, to save weight and thus your cost for shipping. If catalogue values are visible in the photo written on a page or tag, they may be out of date and inaccurate. Shipping:
My lots generally end on weekend evenings so I will have your stuff in the mail to you on Monday or Tuesday. If there’s a delay (blizzard, family crisis), I will email you to let you know. My preferred shipping method for small items that fit in glassines or 102 cards is to put them in a semirigid (cardboard) Scotch photomailer to protect them from trauma in transport and send them by USPS regular First Class mail. The photomailer weights 1.6 oz empty, so it costs a bit more to ship (usually $1.69 postage for 2 oz + the cost of the mailer). The USPS treats this as a “package” because of its rigidity, so it requires manual sorting, and delivery takes longer than for letters (typically 7-10 days across the U.S.). If your purchase is really small (a few stamps) and not very expensive and you’re willing to accept some risk of bending during delivery, I can mail the item(s) in a regular envelope, using a 102 card for stiffening, and it will go for 50c and get to you faster. When I invoice you, let me know if you prefer this “el cheapo” method. Albums and accumulations seem to ship most efficiently in a Priority Mail box, and packages to Canada will go by Priority Mail. My charges for shipping, are, as best I can figure it, a sum of the cost of postage, the cost of the mailing supplies, and if a trip to the post office is necessary for insurance, customs, etc. I don’t try to profit from shipping or include a charge for “handling.” I will work with you to combine your winning offers for shipping; for small items I’ll try to do it routinely but for larger ones it will depend on the size and availability of packaging material. Return Policy:
I have a liberal return policy. If I have made a mistake in describing the lot, feel free to return it intact for a full refund. This does not apply to large lots (bulk lots, album pages, full stock pages) where I can’t monitor whether the lot has been cherry-picked. Stamps that are photographed in the listing should not be returned because of dissatisfaction with centering or perfs. Lots with more than a couple dozen stamps may not be returned for small faults, and items sold “as is” or with described faults may not be returned. I usually don’t deal in material that needs certification, but if you are submitting a stamp for a certificate, notify me when payment is made and I’ll extend the return eligibility period (I refund the cost of the stamp and shipping, not the cost of certification). I do not make Second Chance offers because I don’t deal in large quantities of identical material.
