Stamps that sell for above $250 will receive a full refund for both the price of the stamp and cost of the certificate if it should come back not as described. For U.S. stamps only certificates from either APS, PSE or from the Philatelic Foundation are accepted, however “graded” certificates or “encased” items are not accepted. Proof of the inability to express an opinion is not grounds for return.
