  1. NEW JERSEY: and ANOTHER wonderful Dillon story....

    I bought a beautiful Globe Stamp Sovereign from 1980...and had it shipped from england. as you can see, there were slight complications in transit:





    and after Matt Walters works his magic:



    I walked into this thing thinking it would cost tons of money......costed $25. You can hardly notice anything happened, unless u looked for it. Will definitely go to him from now on for any euph repairs.

    The finished pictures of the job by Matt Walters must be missing. Or... am I missing something?

    Thanks for making the second effort to post the "after pictures". Yes, Matt does good work. I think this was worth more than $25 too.
