Estimated Values. Bids should be made in GBP (British Pounds Sterling) only and in whole pounds.

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.

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.
