IMAGES: Notice about the images of the banknotes you are purchasing: while images of some especially of the old, rare and unique banknotes are actual, many images/photos are only made for illustrational purposes. The serial number and/or the signatures, the dates, and the overall condition of the note you receive may be different than the one you see on the Obverse-Reverse image, except in the listings where serial number is recorded.

We keep the right to own the digital scans (images, photos) of the banknotes, coins etc. that we sell. Example: you purchase an item "X" and therefore you become an owner of the physical item "X" but the scan (image) that we made of it we keep the right to own our copy of the scan. It means you own your own scans if and once you make them. When purchasing banknotes from us you automatically agree that we keep a digital copy of each banknote that was sold to you displayed in our public and free gallery and we have a right to own that scanned copy.

No claims to the merchandise can be made past the 6 months period if abandonment of the merchandise has occurred unless its past past holder pays $40 or equivalent per each and every month of storage for storage and protection of the merchandise regardless of value, amount and weight of the merchandise.

POSTAL INQUIRIES: Please note that REGISTERED AIR MAIL may take up to TWO (2) months to arrive to abroad and overseas destinations. It usually takes much less time, but accordingly to International Postal Convention laws a registered mail sender can only make a request to search for a delayed registered mail AFTER it's been 1 month (30 days) after the mail was sent. Please be patient in case of delay and try not to load me with extra unnecessary inquiries if it's been less than 30 to 60 days since your letter (package) was shipped out to you. There are cases when mail piece arrives to the destination after 3 or even 4 months undamaged and in good shape, severely delayed.
