Terms and Conditions

Elizabethan Stamps is owned and operated by Ian Lasok-Smith (Philatelist)

When making purchases through this site it is assumed that these terms and conditions have been read alongside the notes on my standards with regards condition.


All items are in fine unmounted mint, or used condition and can be assumed to be free of any hidden faults or defects unless specifically described.


Unmounted mint. Full original gum

Used. All used items are illustrated with actual item for sale

Terms of Sale / Return:

Some items, particularly errors and varieties may be illustrated with a "normal" to emphasise differences. Unless specifically stated to be included in purchase price normal examples may not be included, although in many instances when available they will be included at no extra cost.

All items are sent on approval for 30 days against full payment.

I offer a full no quibble refund policy on all items returned in original condition within 30 days. Items should be returned using the secure packaging materials in which sent.

If item is returned due to an error on my part (incorrect item, condition not as described....) your return postage charges will also be refunded.

If there is a need to return an item please use a method of delivery that requires a signature on receipt. Proof of your having posted an item is not proof that I have received it.


 Items sold with the following recognised certificates of authenticity "RPSL", "BPA" and "David Brandon" will not be accepted as returns after 30 days. As with all items I sell, certificated items may be returned within 30 days on my "no quibble" refund basis so long as received back in original condition.

If a buyer wishes to obtain their own certificate on uncertificated items purchased from me they must inform me of this within the 30 day return period. I will not refund items several months after purchase if I have not been so informed. The buyer will be liable for cost of certificates unless item deemed not genuine where I will refund cost of certificate.
