Terms of Sale
Ordering: All items are sold based on first come,
first serve. Orders can be made by mail, e-mail or phone.
Guarantee: Customer satisfaction is guaranteed
100%. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the item you have
purchased you can return it for a full refund within 7 days of receipt.
All items are sold as genuine and as described. For stamps that are
sold primarily for their cancellations, expect minor faults unless noted
fault free. Covers should be expected to have minor faults with
significant reductions, tears, and missing pieces noted in the description.
Expertization: All items are sold as genuine,
but should any item be proven otherwise by an acceptable expertising
committee, full refund will be made. In order to receive the full
refund, an email or written notification will need to be made to myself
within 7 days of the opinion receipt.
Expert opinions will be accepted from the Philatelic
Foundation (PF) and the Professional Stamp Experts (PSE).
The buyer needs to notify myself within 7 days of item
receipt that they intend to submit the item for expertising. The
matter will remain open on extension until such opinion is rendered.
A declined opinion is not grounds for return of any
item. The seller will pay charges for expertising up to $50 if a
"not genuine" is issued.
Payment: Cash, money order, or personal
checks payable to Matthew Kewriga are accepted for payment. Items will ship when payment clears
unless the buyer is known (APS members, when number is provided, will be
treated as known). Massachusetts residents will be charged 6.25% MA
sales tax on the purchase price unless a valid resale certificate is
For international customers, or any customer wishing to
pay by credit card or PayPal, I offer payment via PayPal email invoice.

under $1,000 will be charged
$5.00 for shipping and handling. Orders totaling $1,000 or
over will be sent free of charge.
For book orders, there is a charge
of $5.00 for the first book plus $1.00 for each additional book for postage and handling.
All catalogs and books will be sent out as media mail rate unless other
arrangements are made.
Regardless of the above, International orders will
be billed actual postage plus a $2 handling fee.
Refunds: All items are returnable for any
reason within 7 days of receipt. Buyer must send an email notifying
me that the item is being returned. Upon receipt, I will notify the buyer and refund the buyer's full purchase price for items returned in
original condition. No refund will be given for items returned not
in original condition.
