The actual certificate plus a statement of expenses must be returned to H.J.W. Daugherty with the lot on the original auction lot page within ten(10) days of the receipt by the buyer of the Opinion, or all rights of return and refund will be forfeited.

If, however, the Opinion states a defect or defects not described in the auction lot description, the buyer will be entitled to a refund of the purchase price only.

Stamps may not be marked in any way by anyone. Stamps that have been marked in any way by any expert or committee, may not be returned for refund regardless of the opinion rendered. The stamps in our sales do not belong to us. We do not have permission from the owners for them to be marked.
