Unlike sellers you may have encountered, I will not intentionally misrepresent any stamp that I sell. Stamps make an excellent investment in this uncertain and volatile time.
Their value has historically increased steadily over time, irrespective of the vicissitudes of global economic conditions. I always try to make my listings as accurate and complete as possible. I also strive to always include a scan of the gum side of the stamps, unless the market value of the stamps does not warrant it - even when including the back side scan is not to my advantage.
I do this because I want my buyers to know exactly what they are getting beforehand, and because I understand that being honest and having a reputation for being so pays more than trying to cheat my buyers.
