not apply to the CSA Currency.
Please include your CWPS (CSA) Member Number with your order to claim the

section for the necessary information. The items on the listings are
all offered net price. No additional discounts beyond the CWPS (CSA) Member
Discount are available. Lower offers are not solicited and will be
declined if made as a matter of policy. Occasionally items

Bonafide dealers may
contact me for a dealer discount.
Dealers not known to me who are not members of the ASDA or another
nationally recognized stamp dealer organization such as the TSDA or the
FSDA must supply me with a Business Card
and a Tax Resale Number
specific to a stamp or related dealership (coins, collectibles, paper
ephemera, antiques, currency or some such similar dealership) as proof
of actual dealership. CSA Member and Dealer Discounts
apply only to the CSA Stamps and Covers and do not apply to the CSA
Everything that I sell is GUARANTEED as Genuine.
If an item is submitted for certification after purchase and is by some
chance returned with a bad certificate, then I will promptly issue a
refund to include the cost incurred in obtaining the bad certificate.
If a "No Opinion" certificate is obtained, I will refund the cost of
the item and the cost of the certificate if desired. But please bear in
mind that it is not uncommon to obtain a "No Opinion" certificate on
scarce CSA material, and it does not lessen its salability to the
knowledgeable advanced collector. The items must be returned to me in
the same condition as purchased for
these certificate refunds to take effect.
Certificates that are acceptable are the Civil War Philatelic Society (CPS) formerly known as the Confederate Stamp
(CSA), American Philatelic Society (APS), and the Philatelic Foundation
(PF). The PSE has recently announced (2012) that they will now again
accept CSA stamps for authentication, grading, and slabbing. The other
three major CSA certifying committees listed do not slab the stamps.
The Civil War Philatelic Authentication Service (Confederate Stamp Alliance Authentication Service) is significantly
opposed to the slabbing of Confederate stamps. Stamps purchased will
not be accepted for a return for reasons of grading as the stamps are
not sold per the PSE grading system.
Stamps purchased from this website subsequently slabbed by the PSE
after purchase will not be accepted as returns for any reason.
approval period is 15 days (30 days if
overseas). I ask that items be returned within that period of time if
they are found to be unsatisfactory. Collectors who do
material on approval and do not either return or pay for the material
within the requested time will lose the privilege of examining the
material on approval. If more time is needed, then please let me know
as I am always willing to work directly with the individual collector.
I do offer time
payment plans up to 90 days at no interest. If
interested in a 30, 60, or 90 day payment plan, please contact me by
E-mail for details of each plan (JLKCSA@aol.com)
may be returned within the approval period for a full refund if not
completely satisfied. No reason need be given. But if
any item is returned, I would really appreciate knowing the reason.

Many of you may
understandably be a bit reluctant to do business
on-line with someone that you do not know. Please note that I belong to
the major philatelic organizations. If in doubt, please feel free to
check directly with the American Stamp Dealer's Association and the
American Philatelic Society to verify my membership. Direct links to
the Home Pages of these two major philatelic associations are provided
at the bottom of my Index Page. I run a continuous classified display
advertisement in Linn's Stamp News and have had a
display ad in the Confederate Section of the Scott USA
for a number of years. My philatelic business was established in 1988,
and this website went online in 1997. My business has been built on
fair dealing and on the trust of my collector clients. No dealer can
survive long in the philatelic business without the trust of the
collector. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to give me a
call on the telephone (phone number above).
