NOW BECAUSE OF THE LIKELY FINAL VALUE OF SUCH AN ITEM IT WILL HAVE TO BE SENT BY COURIER FULLY INSURED DOMESTICALLY OR INTERNATIONALLY HENCE THE HIGHER THAN NORMAL POSTAGE COSTS. INSURANCE FOR SUCH AN ITEM IS USUALLY AROUND gbp 30 OF THE ESTIMATED DISPATCH COST

I AM HAPPY TO NEGOTIATE SHIPPING METHODS AND ACCEPT BIDS FROM INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS BUT IN CASE OF PROBLEMS HIGH CONSIDERATION WILL BE GIVEN TO DOMESTIC BIDDERS WHO EXPRESS A DESIRE TO COLLECT THE ITEM THEMSELVES BUT THE WINNING BIDDER WILL GET FIRST PRIORITY ALWAYS

I am sorry the international shipping cost is so high but please be assured it is at cost and I am making no money from it, i will explain... this is because I have to use the more expensive signed for international mail options to comply with ebay's buyer protection program. As the seller I am fully responsible for the items safe arrival


All shown postage costs are fully inclusive of loss or damage again this is a requirement of ebay and postal costs relfect this also, it is no longer offered as optional. some of the more valuable items of the same weight will also therefore show a slightly higher postal cost, basic tracked mail only covers up to around G 30, for items that are likely to sell well in excess of G 30 I have to pay around extra just to get the additional cover up to G 500 so some items will reflect this in the postage cost too, .

Sadly ebay do not accept proof of posting as evidence of shipping so sellers have to use the more expensive international tracked mail or risk being victims of fraudulent non receipt claims. if ebay allowed sellers to opt out of the protection program when buyers are specifically happy to pay and risk economy shipping then i would be able to ship much cheaper. Apologies again, this is not of my making.

DOMESTIC UK RECORDED DELIVERY INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS PLEASE SEE MY NOTE BELOW.

NON UK BUYERS PLEASE NOTE MY COMMENTS REGARDING INTERNATIONAL MAIL BELOW...RETURNS POLICY ONLY APPLICABLE TO UK..RETURNS OUTSIDE UK BUYER WILL HAVE TO COVER ALL POSTAGE COSTSFurthermore international bidders please also note that due to ebays new "buyer protection " policy many sellers now refuse to sell internationally anymore. I am not one of those sellers yer but please note I do now reserve the right to refuse to complete a sale to any international bidder that may have low or bad feedback or for any other reason and this is especially so if the item sells for over GBP 100, like I say this is purely a result of ebay/paypals new policy that make it now even harder for sellers to trade safely internationally. Please bare this in mind if you win an item but find that it has been offered first instead to a domestic UK Bidder.

FOR BIDDERS WITH ZERO FEEDBACK THIS IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT... I have recently been the victim of serveral spurious bids from several different members (usually based in the Russian Federation). Please note that if you win any of my items and have zero feedback I will ask you for immediate payment or for you to email and immediately confirm that you were a genuine bidder. Failiure to meet either of those critiera will result in the item being offered to the next highest bidder without further delay. thank you.

ALL MY RECORDS ARE USUALLY SOLD ON VISUAL GRADINGS ONLY, THEREFORE, WITH THE SINGULAR EXCEPT ON THOSE RARE OCCASSIONS WHERE I DO STATE THEY HAVE BEEN PLAY GRADED, AS ALL DISCS ARE 2ND HAND ANY PLAYING DEFECTS ARE THEREFORE CAVIAT EMPTOR AND SO NON REFUNDABLE. I ONLY REFUND WHERE AN ACTUAL GRADING OF MINE IS DISPUTED

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

( Please note that whilst I try to endeavour to adhere to strict RC gradings I will never describe ANYTHING AS MINT even when I think it to be so. As far as I am concerned any secondhand item by definition cannot be mint. However if I believe an item to be MintI will instead either use the terms Near Mint, mint minus, or in archive or vault condition. When I use these terms you know that in my opinion this is in effect a de-facto Mint grade )

INSURANCE INCLUDED IN P&P PRICE DEPENDING ON FINAL SALE VALUE...

Dont forget to take a look at my other items. Please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I ONLY DO A COUPLE OF RUNS A WEEK TO THE POST OFFICE BUT MY ITEMS ARE ALWAYS DISPATCHED WELL WITHIN ONE CALENDAR WEEK OF PAYMENT BEING RECEIVED. I APOLOGISE IN ADVANCE TO THOSE BUYERS WHO SEEM TO EXPECT THEIR ITEM TO ARRIVE THE NEXT DAY, IF YOU WANT TO CHECK WHEN AN ITEM WAS SENT JUST PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND I WILL BE VERY HAPPY TO TELL YOU!! (SOME PEOPLE DO MAKE YOU LAUGH, FOR ITEMS I BUY I ONLY NORMALLY GET CONCERNED AFTER A COUPLE OF WEEKS AND EVEN AFTER THAT THEN ONLY POLIETELY ENQUIRE IF AND WHEN THE ITEM WAS SENT).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PAYMENTS BY PAYPAL ARE PREFERRED BUT I ALSO ACCEPT OTHER METHODS. I ALSO POST WORLDWIDE (PLS APPLY FOR RATES) BUT DUE TO A PROBLEM WITH A DISREPUTABLE BUYER IN JAPAN (EBAY WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO NAME THEM) , FOR ALL PAYMENTS MADE VIA PAYPAL THE ITEM WILL ONLY BE SENT BOTH TO THE UK AND WORLDWIDE BY RECORDED OR INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR DELIVERY. THIS IS TO ELIMINATE THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY ATTEMPT TO CLAIM BACK THE PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL EVEN AFTER ACTUALLY HAVING RECEIVED THE ITEM.

THIS OBVIOUSLY HAS HAD THE RESULT OF INCREASING MY COSTS FOR POSTING AND PACKING AND I AM VERY SORRY FOR THIS BUT PAYPAL OFFER NO PROTECTION FOR SELLERS UNLESS THERE IS PROOF OF DELIVERY!! PROOF OF POSTING WOULD SEEM INSUFFICIENT TO THEM AND I HAVE FOUND THIS OUT THE HARD WAY..

DUE TO THE BEHAVIOUR OF THIS SAME BUYER PAYPAL PAYMENTS WILL ALSO NOT BE ACCEPTED FROM BUYERS WHO DO NOT ALLOW THEIR FEEDBACK TO READ,

EACH ADDITIONAL LP AFTER THE FIRST WILL USUALLY BE AND EXTRA G 2.00 PER EACH ADDITIONAL LP
