I'm planning some home renovations this Winter/Spring, so I'm going to have a series of sales. The next few will b raw 10-ct Dcs,  from the 50's and  60's. I might toss in a few exceptions, but not many.


This   group will be 10- cent  Action Comics. I will post 12 books this morning and about the same tonight at 8pm est. Combine shipping with the Adventures I had listed last week:) 

 

U.S. Shipping is whatever a regional box A costs (usually about $7.50 for the east coast and $9.80 for the West coast. I can fit at least 10 books in one of those safely. Tracking is included. If you buy more than I think can fit in a regional box A, I'll cover the difference for a larger box.

 

If you prefer, I can use a priority flat rate envelope. I can safely send up to 4 books that way, I use very strong boards. I think boxes are even safer, but it's up to you.

 

I send anything over $200 signature required. I pay for private insurance, so that is covered by me.

I will ship anywhere at cost (no handling fees) (so Canada to the South Pole, etc, is fine;) 


Paypal and checks/MO's are accepted.

 

Time payments are possible (but ask me first before posting a Take It) General rule is 20% down (non refundable) due within 3 days. The rest of the payment schedule we can work out, but the payments must be completed no later than March 2nd. If they are not, I will refund the balance minus the initial 20%.

 

Take it rules. You can post in the thread or in a PM. If you post in the pm, put the time. I don't expect ties, but if there is one, the tie goes to the post on the thread.

 

Returns. I accept returns on anything. You have 7 days from the day you received the book to return it to me. It must be packaged the way I packed it. Please let me know before returning anything.

 

No list people please.

If there are any questions, or you want me to try to take more pictures, just pm me.
