I have a few classic US items that I would like to have authenticated/certified.
I would like to use William T. Crowe but have not had any luck with him answering his aol.com e-mail address. He also lists a P.O. box on his certificates, but in this day and age I would rather not have to write a letter. Can anyone here assist me with some information?
Thanks, Joel

Crowe is a member of the forum. Perhaps you could use his name in a post title until you get 50 posts and can email him through forum mail?

Give it another try. I am currently in Boston, but I am heading home today. Unfortunately, requests can fall into my spam folder. I now get between 150 and 200 spam e-mails a day. I look two times a day, but it is possible I missed your e-mail

In this day and age, no one certifies stamps by e-mail, letters must be sent. Nor is certification instant or free.

As to the material you have shown elsewhere on the SCF, are you getting the certs for you own knowledge and collecting? If not, I am not sure if the costs involved will help you sell your recently acquired materiel for anything more than you paid for it especially deducting the cost associated with selling the material, including the cost of certificates, postage and insurance. Even upper tier material can't be flipped that quickly without loss. And remember, a certificate also certifies the defects, if any, of the stamp for all to read.

Edit:

Have you read this thread, http://goscf.com/t/82520&whichpage=1 ?
