3. ENGRAVER : Jules-Clément Chaplain (1839-1909) – one of the most renown French medallist of the late 19th century, his career can be described as emblemic of the “Golden Age” of Medallic Art.  He first studied sculpting and engraving at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris under such masters as Jouffroy and Oudiné.  In 1863 he won the Grand Prix de Rome, allowing him to study as a reident of Villa Medici in Rome from 1864-1868.  Chaplain returned to Paris in 1869 where he found official success almost immediately, winning notice in the Salons of 1870 and 1872.  In rapid succession, Chaplain was named in 1877 the official medallist of the French Government, in 1878 a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur, and in 1881 to the seat at the Académie des Beaux Arts left vacant by the death of Jacques-Edouard Gatteaux.  He was responsible for the official portraits of every president of the French Republic from Patrice Mac-Mahon in 1877 to Émile Loubet in 1899.  Chaplain also received the commission for engraving the gold coinage of France at the urging of Claude Roger-Marx.  He also engraved commemorative and official prize medals for the Paris Exposition Universelles of 1867, 1878, 1889 and 1900.

* does not let us list a website address within our descriptions, so we encourage you to do an internet search on the keywords “france mon timbre en ligne,” where you should get to France’s LaPoste website.
---------------------------
If you want your package sent Registered, that is an ADDITIONAL flat fee of $6.00 (prices went up) – this is independent of the First Class postage fee.  If you want Registered, please let us know once we send you the initial invoice.  changed some rules, so we would need to send you a New Invoice with the additional $6.00 included in the postage price.  You will be AUTOMATICALLY Insured for your entire amount. 
---------------------------
We guarantee to send your item within three business days following receipt of your payment.  Most of our packages are received by the recipients in two weeks or less.  But there are occasions when the postal system is slow and your package may take longer to be delivered.  This, of course, is completely beyond our control.  All we can ask is for you to be patient and accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Also note that if you have your package sent Registered, but it has not been delivered in what you believe is a reasonable timeframe, please contact us.  We must mention though that France’s LaPoste can not start a search until 30 days after the package was sent.  These are the rules and realities we must all accept.

NEW SHIPPING POLICY

For both your and our protection, if your combined winning offers equal $100 or more in any one week (prior to shipping costs), having your package sent Registered from now on is REQUIRED (you will be automatically insured) - this will be reflected on your Paypal invoice.

  This is NOT optional.  Thus, even if you win one item only, you must wait for us to send you a Paypal invoice which will include the costs of Regular First Class postage + Registered.  Again, this is for both your and our protection.  In the unlikely event that your package “disappears” somewhere in the international postal system, we will all now have a clear path to either locating your package via France’s LaPoste investigating team, or, if they are unsuccessful, you will be refunded your entire amount.  Without this added level of protection, we have no way of verifying your claim of a lost package. 

We prefer that everyone experiences a smooth transaction and comprehends that the international postal system is not flawless.  Sometimes packages do get “lost.”  Thus, by instituting this policy, all of us know that there is proper recourse.  As such, we are sure you understand the necessity of this new policy, and we appreciate your cooperation.  If you do not agree, please do not offer on our items. 

Different countries have varied levels of dependability with regard to their postal systems.  Over the years, we have had a variety of problems when packages have been sent to countries with relatively low dependability.  Thus, if your country is listed below, and your combined winning offers equal $50 or more (not $100 as listed above) in any one week (prior to shipping costs), having your package sent Registered from now on is REQUIRED (you will be automatically insured) - this will be reflected on your Paypal invoice.  This is NOT optional.  Following is  the list of countries to which this policy applies:

ALL countries in Central and South America + Africa + Asia (except Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and Taiwan, but DOES INCLUDE China, India and all others) + the following European countries (based on our years of experience with each) : Spain, Italy, Greece, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Serbia, Moldova, Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Armenia, and Georgia.

We are not passing judgement on any individual country – we are just basing our decision on our many years of sending packages around the world.  As such, we are sure you understand the necessity of this new policy, and we appreciate your cooperation.  If you do not agree, please do not offer on our items.  

If you only win this one item and know which delivery option you want - if under $100, or under $50 if from one of the countries listed above - feel free to pay via Paypal immediately.  If on the other hand, you win two or more items, please do NOT pay us until you receive the Paypal invoice from us that includes all the postage and handling details.
