When you buy from the Stanley Gibbons Marketplace, you never need to worry about buying fakes again.
Can I interest you in a Rare U.S. #R84 Headless Statue of Freedom? The asking price is a just $3.5 Million for this unique piece of history.
Not familiar with this item? Don’t worry, you haven’t missed out on the next British Guiana One-Cent Black on Magenta. It’s actually from a past listing on Ebay, which remained listed for several months; despite numerous reports to Ebay from collectors worried this listing was damaging Ebay’s reputation as a serious destination for philately.
What it really was – was a fake error, or more simply – the back of a used common U.S. revenue stamp that happened to have some ink transfer from the envelope it was previously on!
I’m sure you’ve head many stories like this, as these types of items are commonly found on Ebay. You may have even had a chuckle or two when viewing them – I know I have! But at the end of the day, when you want to purchase a stamp or collectible – you want to feel safe and confident, and that’s how we want you to feel too. That’s why, at the Stanley Gibbons Marketplace, we do things differently.
