Availability of items.

Quite a bit of effort is put into keeping this website current, but it is a large site with many HUNDREDS of items and sometimes there is a time lag between items on the site that have been sold, being actually listed as "Sold" 

Sometimes, in this time, a purchase request will be made for an item already sold.  That is life, sorry. 

Sometimes, we just plain forget that an item that has sold has not been marked that way on the website. Although we try to not to make a habit of it, we are human and oversights do sometimes happen.

If you miss out, we will make an effort to locate a similar item for you, however, many of our items listed are scarce and hard to get in the short term. The shopping cart is old, like us, and often does not work with newer computers.

We are a Registered Business with an Australian Business Number  and we will supply a GST invoice to any likewise ABN registered business that requests it...  If you are keeping coins and stamps as Superanuation and your fund has an ABN, then we will supply a GST invoice on your request.
