  • Approval Period: We offer to accept back for a full refund, any items which do not meet our customer's expectations, within ten days of receipt of that item. All material remains the property of ABC Coins & Tokens until payment has cleared, but is the responsibility of the customer from the time of receipt

  • Book Postage: A separate price will be be quoted for books and heavier items, please check with us and we will be pleased to assist.
  • Grading: Using the British system of F (Fine), VF (Very Fine), EF (Extremely Fine), UNC (Uncirculated) etc., we have tried to keep it as simple as possible by using + and - after the grade to indicate "better than" or "less than" rather than "nice or good" and "nearly or almost". It should be borne in mind, when considering hammered coins, that the quality of strike and wear on dies varies greatly resulting in a poorly struck coin, or a coin struck from worn dies, looking like a lower grade having been in circulation a only short time.
