Certificates of Authenticity

Colectalia.com specializes in the postal history of the Republican labor camps and prisons, and thus, all these pieces we sell are accompanied with no additional cost by a Certificate of Authenticity. These Certificates are a proof that lots bearing them have their origin in Colectalia and they guarantee the quality and the rarity of the pieces with no time limit.

Additionally, we also issue Certificates for any other piece we sell (with a minimum price of €100) at the buyer’s request, at a cost of 20% of sale price.

We keep a public record of certified lots to give extra security to the market about high quality and top pieces, and to enease their further transmission. The price of sale of the certified pieces and the identity of the original buyer are confidential, and this data will not be disclosed under any circumstances. Here is a list with copies of the Certificates issued. The originals have the fields “Registry Nr” and “Date” filled in, and are signed.

Anyone owning or being transferred a lot with one of these certificates can verify its legitimacy contacting us.

Here is a list with copies of the Certificates issued. The originals have the fields “Registry Nr” and “Date” filled in, and are signed:
