Certificates of Authenticity
Obtaining Certificates of Authenticity
Notice that a stamp is being submitted for a certificate MUST be made at the time payment is made.
No refunds will be made after 120 days of the sale date unless we are contacted and extra time is granted.
Due to the high cost of obtaining certificates, we will only refund the cost of the stamp and not the cost of the certificate for the stamps that sell for less than $100 that come back with a negative certificate.
Stamps that sell for more than $100 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. stamp certificates from either PSE, APS or from the Philatelic foundation are accepted; however, "graded" certificates or "encased" items are not accepted.
Proof of the inability of a competent authority to express an opinion is not grounds for return.
Thank you for shopping with ESP.
