Purchase $50.00 or more and fully insured shipping is free.

Purchase less than $50.00 and fully insured shipping is only $1.50.

All items are sent via first class mail or air mail and are fully covered by private insurance. They are sent at my risk. Should a lot fail to be delivered within 45 days, you will receive a full refund. I DO NOT offer registered shipping. The rate has now increased to well over $10.00 and there are new paperwork requirements. In addition, the service is very, very slow.  My standard shipping is fully insured. If you would like to use an expedited service, I can offer FedEx or U.S. Postal Service Express Mail at the actual cost. Do please note that I can still only send the shipment on Friday morning.


Email communication has become increasingly difficult. Please be certain you will be able to receive email from me . Internet zeitgeist has determined it is better to not get an email you might want than to get an email you might not want. Spam filters have made the receipt any email as a much a matter of chance as design. Please adjust any filters on your local email program to allow email from jimforte@postalhistory.com. Please also contact your ISP and demand that they allow email from jimforte@postalhistory.com.


Shipments are made once per week on a Friday morning. On most weeks, the cut off for this Friday morning shipment is at 7:00 PM Wednesday. Domestic shipments usually arrive the following Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Shipments to Western Europe (except Italy), Japan, Taiwan and Singapore typically see delivery within one week. Other parts of the world can take longer, sometimes far longer. Your patience will be necessary. Credit cards are authorized upon order. The charge will not be processed until 12-14 hours before actual shipment.
