My name is Al Wingate and I have been active as a stamp collector for more than fifty years and recently have taken up part time dealing in the hobby. I have been buying collections and estate lots for several years and now have a very good inventory of stamps to sell. I attend shows and bourses throughout the year, check out my section on where I’ll be if you like to shop in person. I recently decided to create this web site to let people know what I have to offer. Browse around and see if anything interests you. I can’t possibly list even a small fraction of individual items in my stock so I encourage you to send an email with your want list. I promise prompt replies to all queries.I have worldwide stamps, souvenir sheets and covers. My Canadian stock of material is quite complete with many of my bourse customers telling me I have the most complete stock of sheets, booklets, and plate blocks they have ever seen at a show. Besides Canada I have strong inventory of Great Britain including Prestige Booklets, mint sets, early plate number varieties, sheets and PO presentation packs. Many other countries are very well stocked and I have something from just about every issuing authority that ever issued postage stamps. Prices shown are catalogue values and I charge 70% for mint never hinged, 50% for mint hinged, and 60% for used, all in Canadian dollars, not US dollars. For some items, I just show “MP” which is my price for the item. For high volume customers I offer additional discounts.In Canada payment may be by cheque, money order, electronic transfer, or major credit card. For orders outside Canada cheques and International Money orders can be in Canadian funds or US funds, with one US dollar accepted as $1.25 CDN, or electronic transfer or credit cards may be used.Orders under $30.00 please add $2.00 for shipping, orders over $30.00 will be shipped at my cost using lowest cost postal service. Any shipping service requested above lowest cost will be at customer’s expense and will be agreed to before shipping. As a stamp collector, I will use Canada Post issued stamps to pay shipping costs, not metered postage.I guarantee that any material shipped will be as described and I will refund any payments if you as a customer are not satisfied and return the material to me within 30 days of receipt. I will even accept returns if you just change your mind about wanting the material, but in that case I would expect that you pay the return postage. This return policy cannot apply to large collections where it is impossible to verify what is returned.
