VOLUME 2 - Volume 1 is still available also but this is for the new VOLUME 2 with new articles and information.
Not an e-book - Actual printed 96 page book (soft cover).
The purpose of this book is to save the average collector money. It is hoped that with a few tidbits of knowledge here and there, an average collector will avoid bogus stamps as well as save money when submitting stamps for expertising. Whether at Professional Stamp Experts, the Philatelic Foundation or any other certifying body that charges for its services, saving money on a certificate that would state that your stamp is altered or fake is better spent on more stamps, especially if the knowledge to detect that deception is readily available.
The name, The Book of Philatelic Secrets is based on a lesser definition of â€œSecretsâ€. The same way that the â€œsecret to a long and happy lifeâ€ or the â€œsecret to a good marriageâ€ is a secret only until a person chooses to investigate it, such are the â€œSecretsâ€ in this book. These are not secrets that are being hidden from you. They wonâ€™t make you an expert but they will make you a better, happier collector who avoids the bad news that your valuable collection is not-so-valuable.
In this 96 page full color book filled with pictures and illustrations, you will find many stamps shown in ways that were not possible ten years ago. Due to new technology, from better pictures to pictures using different light sources, ten years ago many of the articles in this book would not have been possible.
In this book you will find tricks to locate and discover rare and valuable stamps.
In this book you will learn how to detect fake stamps. In the old days these were called Album Weeds. The term then applied to foreign counterfeits but today (in the USA) it applies mostly to fake coils.
In this book the industryâ€™s leading experts will show how to detect and avoid reperforated and regummed stamps.
NOTE: The books are sent media mail SO PLEASE GIVE THEM AN EXTRA WEEK at the post office to get to you (have been getting complaints because the Post Office is slower than usual lately)
ALL MY LOTS ARE NO FAULTS UNLESS LISTED and everything is guaranteed to please so if you dont like it, email me and i will make it right, after all everyone makes mistake - the difference is that I work hard to fix mine. AND AS ALWAYS, No hidden reserve - just a reasonable starting bid and a 14-day return privilege.
If you like what you see feel free to make an offer. I have more lots just like this one available right now-
Note!! I do not ship to russia or mexico any longer. There is no way to assure delivery - i am sorry but your post-offices are crime riddled and i loose to many shipments to you.
SHIPPING: Shipping is generally $2 (one lot in the US is just $1). I do give shipping discounts if you request it. Get an invoice with combined shipping for more than 3 lots (3 lots or less there isnt really any discount) go to the "MY Hip" tab at the upper right and then click "PURCHASE HISTORY" and the on the right side click "REQUEST INVOICE" - If you dont see this button click "MORE OPTIONS" or "MORE ACTIONS" and you will see it. You have to do this because this is the only way to change the Hip shipping settings on an individual basis.
