Terms & Conditions  

A general list of the the terms and conditions that we conduct our sales under, plus details of payment methods we accept. We would urge all buyers to read this page to avoid confusion and delay in processing your order.

How to Order


The easiest way is to use our Web Shopping Cart, being a very simple procedure and by far the quickest. It takes just moments. As an alternative you can print out the order form, complete same, call or send it by mail.

Our Phone number is United States(937) 653-6376 or (937) 653-8094.
If there is no answer, our answering machine will take your call.

Our address is Triple S Postal History, P.O. Box 224, Urbana, Ohio 43078 (NOTE: These details are on the printed order form)

Please ensure when ordering any item that you include your address so that we can quote on packing, postage and insurance costs for you. We regularly receive orders with a name but no address, this makes the transaction time much longer than it needs to be.

Payment Methods


Payment may be made by credit card, cheque on US Bank and money order. We accept PayPal, MasterCard and VISA credit cards. We do not charge a surcharge for using a credit card; in fact, we prefer clients to use credit cards as it makes all transactions quick and convenient for both parties involved.

You may post us money (currency notes) at your risk, or traveller's cheques of ANY currency but only by Registered Post please. You receive a full credit of what that currency yields nett in US dollars when converted by our bank.

Money Orders from US Post Office are acceptable but unfortunately overseas Money Orders are not.

Currency Conversion


For your use we have placed a free currency conversion link here . Check out the price of an item in your local currency. Please note rates quoted may not be the same as those charged. Currencies fluctuate every second and this may affect your transaction, as well as the final rate your bank may charge.

When paying by credit card, we bill you in US dollars for only the amount agreed (plus postage and handling). The exchange rate and any bank fees for foreign orders will be that calculated by your credit card company and not us.

Returns and Expertisation  


100% customer satisfaction is our goal. We want your long term repeat business. If you are not happy with the goods supplied, please ship them back to us by Registered Mail in the exact condition they were received in, within 48 hours of receipt. Include an explanation of the problem, and we will fully refund your purchase price of those goods, or exchange the goods, as preferred.

NOTE: No lot is returnable, if, subsequent to receipt by purchaser, it has been immersed in water or other fluid, or marked by an Expert or an Expert Committee, or treated or damaged by any process whatever, unless my written permission has been previously obtained.

If you wish to have any item expertised by a proper, recognized, independent Expert Committee you are most welcome to do so, but only after we provide written notification that this is acceptable to us. You need to advise us of this request by registered mail postmarked within 48 hours of lot receipt, or via Fax, or via E-mail. This policy MUST be enforced strictly for obvious reasons and this policy is in line with most other dealers and auction houses worldwide. The onus of proof lies with the purchaser, as do ALL associated costs of postage, expert or legal opinion of Certificates, etc. The inability of a recognized Expert Committee to express a definite and conclusive opinion is no grounds for a refund or return on any lot.

All goods on my website are as described to the best of our ability. If you require further details or a scan please do not hesitate to ask. Collections and mixed lots are obviously not returnable for any reason as is common with all auctions and most other sellers worldwide.

Want Lists


If sending wants list, please describe the items fully with full catalogue description as well as a recognised catalogue #. For better items , note grading required as this may allow us some latitude in providing costing options for your consideration.

Don't forget to send it with a clear return address (postal or E-Mail) so that we can get back to you.

Any fees or charges levied by your bank or credit card company or differences to the exchange rate from the rate quoted on at the time of the sale. For credit card payments you will be charged by us the agreed amount in US Dollars, what your bank or credit card company charges you on top of this is totally out of our hands.

For non delivery of any goods posted to us or from us, for whatever reason, our liability shall be strictly limited to whatever sum may be paid or owed to the recipient or sender by the postal authorities. Not withstanding this, goods posted by us, unless specified in writing by the client, are sent by Post Office normal mail both domestically and overseas if valued at less than $200 US or by Registered Mail if valued at more than $200 US. Large or bulky goods valued at over $100 US will be sent by method described by buyer in writing.

We keep a record of all mail sendings (including copies of the stamped United States Post receipts and shall be happy to provide a copy if requested). It is further understood that lodging such claims within the statutory time limit applied by the postal authorities shall also be the responsibility of the purchaser if the senders involvement is required.

All orders placed with us shall be deemed as accepting and agreeing to these, and all and any other Terms and Conditions Of Sale found on this website or available on request by mail or fax.
