(#4 glassines preferred, only one Scott # or set per glassine, up to 100 of each per glassine is OK, with quantity marked on each envelope. Sheet files are OK for sheets and large pieces. Even if you only have 1 of each #, please do not mix Scott #´s in the same glassine. We can supply used glassines if needed, at no charge, if you send a large SASE.)
    • A neat, itemized invoice including your telephone number, catalog number, quantity shipped, and total price.

    • FDC´s: FDC´s must have a cachet related to the stamp. You can send up to 2,000 of any of the mint stamps listed under $1.00, and 500 over $1.00 without prior confirmation. FDC´s listed by number - up to 500 without prior confirmation.
    • Sheets: Sheets must be good as sheets without folds, bad seps, or other faults. Faulty sheets counted as single stamps. Top prices paid for all sound US Sheets.
    • Plate Blocks: Generally, plate blocks are valued at 4x our single buying price. For plate blocks which carry a significant catalog premium over the value of 4 or 6 individual stamps, we will pay fair market value. (e.g. 370 plate block has a significantly higher catalog value than 6 single copies of 370). If you have higher value plate blocks you wish to sell, please inquire!
