I attempt to keep my website current, but on rare occasions an item may appear to be available after it has been sold.  This is due to a past computer problem that lost some updates and occasionally an order will arrive shortly after another for the same item, before I have removed it from available inventory.  In such cases, the buyer will be notified and a refund will be issued

Payments may be made through Paypal, when checking out. I also accept other means of payment and am willing to negotiate instalment terms. Medals can be reserved by placing them in a "shopping cart" and using the "pay by check" option, and contacting me to signal your interest in those items and your proposed payment method.

All medals are guaranteed to be as described and are sent on fifteen days approval. 

An additional charge for registered mail, insurance or for the shipping of books may be added to overseas orders.

Orders are typically processed within twenty-four hours.

In general the medals on this website are pleasing examples of their kind.  Descriptions include the condition of medals, however, I recommend that you use the pictures of an item as your final assessment of its quality. The actual size of a medal, in millimeters (mm) is included in its description.  Pictures may be enlarged by clicking on "view full size," some pictures can be further enlarged by clicking on the top righthand corner.    Since medals are subject to less handling than coins, I use a conservative grading scale that does not use the term "uncirculated," since medals, by definition, do not circulate. I use "extremely fine" to describe medals that are in their original condition or close to it. I use "very fine" to describe medals that are not quite in their original condition, but are still attractive. I also use the qualifiers "good" and "nearly."  When a medal has an obvious defect, such as an edge bump or an uneven patina, I note it in the description.
