How to order: Please send an email to indicating which items are of interest and I will set them to the side for you and confirm their availability via return email.  You may also call to check on the availability of items at the number listed below.  You may also order without seeking confirmation of availability but you run the risk of some items being sold out.  In this case a full refund will be issued for any sold out items.  You may pay by check or money order.  I also accept VISA and MasterCard though PayPal.  Click on the PayPal logo below to get to PayPal. If you are new to the service and wish to sign up, hit the "Sign Up" button at the bottom of the PayPal page.  If you are already registered, simply hit the "Learn More" button; this will take you to a "Log In" page with the familiar tabs at the top which allow you to transfer funds. My email address is  my "account number" at PayPal..   PayPal is highly recommended, as it allows you to use a credit card without sharing your credit card information over the Internet with many dealers or going through the trouble of making many calls to assure the security of your credit card information.

  Postage/Handling/Insurance: Unless otherwise noted, please add $3.99 for postage/handling/insurance on all coin, book & jewelry orders, except on any of Walter Breen's Encyclopedias and the VAM Book -- add $7.00 due to excessive weight; add $4.50 to all supply orders.  As they are shipped separately of one another, please calculate coin, book and supply orders separately to arrive at your total postage costs.   We insure via Private-Courier Services™ (for lower valued packages) or the United States Postal Service -- vendor of our choice.
       Tracking Number Services:  We do not force our customers to pay for the service that provides this function as it is rarely used by anybody.  However, those who want to be able to track their order may request this service by adding $1 to their postage (per package) and specifically asking for the service.   Please DO NOT ask for tracking numbers if you have not paid for this optional service as they will not be available.  The tracking number will be available from us after the shipping date by request.

    Time Of Shipment:   The average time we take to fill an order is seven business days with a range of five to ten business days, and can go a bit longer around holidays (Father's Day, Mother's Day, Super Bowl Sunday and any other days that family and friends generally get together; are loosely considered holidays by us).
