The Mini-Service

This is a high-quality, low-fee service to be used when a formal certificate is not desired. Only off-cover copies of Dragon, Cherry Blossom, Koban (Scott numbers 1-71) and Offices in China and Korea overprints are accepted for this service.

No special submission form is needed. Simply identify material as "for the Mini-Service" and send it by registered mail to the address that will be provided by email. Enclose a self-addressed return envelope bearing sufficient postage for return by registered mail (participants from countries without access to US postage stamps should add at least US$11.50 to their remittances), along with payment by check or money order at the rate of US$1.00 per stamp. The service consists of a careful examination of the stamps, whereupon they are sorted into two groups, genuine and counterfeit. No opinion will be given on cancellations, paper, condition, or catalog identification.
