Buyer's Premium. A buyer's premium of 20.00% (inclusive of VAT) will be added to the hammer price of all lots purchased in this sale.

Estimated Values. Bids should be made in GBP (British Pounds Sterling) only and in whole pounds. Pence will not be taken into consideration and bids below 70% of the estimate may not be entered at all. Estimates are based on realisations from previous sales or at the describer’s discretionary and professional opinion.

Catalogue Numbers and Values are from Stanley Gibbons (SG) catalogues unless shown otherwise. Values are applicable as of the date of describing so variations are possible. Numbers and values taken from other catalogues normally refer accordingly (e.g. Michel/Mi, Yvert/Yv, Scott, etc.) and usually show the £Stg/GBP equivalent of that catalogue value.

Quantities for lots are shown where possible. For logistical reasons bulky lots will be shown with an approximate figure only, often denoted with ‘approx.’ or similar. All reasonable care is taken in preparing figures; whilst accuracy is intended and offered in earnest, statistics and values must be understood as those of opinion and not as resolute fact. 

Certificates. Lots where the item (or main item(s) within lot) has certification mentioned in the description, are offered based on the opinion expressed therein, which, may or may not reflect the views of Mayfair Philatelics Ltd. If extension for certification is required, this must be registered with us when the bid is placed, or by the close of sale at the latest. Requests beyond this point will not be fulfilled.

Value Added Tax (VAT). All stamps are sold under margin scheme rules, mostly for ‘Global Accounting’. No extra need be added within the EU and no export discount applies outside the EU.  For import/export and VAT purposes stamps are treated as pre-owned, therefore, no VAT is added to the overall price nor is it subject to reclaim or discounts.

Delivery of Lots. Our standard method of postage for small or single items is typically via Royal Mail Special Delivery (+£2.00 to cover packing and tax). Larger/Heavier and international shipping varies depending on weight, value and client location. Should your delivery fee total more than £50 you will be notified before despatch. Delivery charges will be waived for invoices totalling £2,000 (UK) and £5,000 (elsewhere) and up. We aim to despatch* within 7 days of the auction close but offer an expedited service for a guaranteed priority despatch (usually first Monday following the auction) for an additional £5. *Please note that actual delivery times may vary.

Notification of Result. Realisations for lots you have bid on will be posted to you in the week following the auction along with your invoice or failure notice and a list of unsold items available for purchase. A list of general realisations along with unsold items will also be available to view/purchase on our website, within 72 hours of the auction close. We regret that we are not able to offer customer specific results online.

Payments should be made within seven days of the auction* or may be subject to interest and fees. Payments can be made via bank transfer, by all major credit/debit cards including AMEX, cash (in person and up to £10,000) or by cheque. Incidentals; debit/credit card details must be provided before the sale closes, details received after this time may be subject to an administrative fee.

Installments may be requested* at the time of placing your bid for amounts of £100 and up, over a maximum of four payments. The first payment will be taken the first working day following the auction and thereafter on the last working day of the month, until the invoice is cleared.
