NEW JERSEY - 1958 MISS AMERICA contestant issue - RARE ORIGINAL first issue
I"ve had three or four MISS AMERICA issues over the past 40 years, but this is the only FIRST ISSUE 1958 series I"ve had - all blue and blue on cream buff - they didn"t use the red and blue combination until later. Check the photos, this is in great condition, and original - chip on the corner, and a light bend which is barely visible from the front - GREAT displayable plate, and a near impossible find these days.
Worthpoint shows NO first issues sold on in the past 15-20 years, and even the 1970"s issues have been in demand. Not a cheapie, but you"re not going to see another....
Items in this group of listings are being being offered with SAME DAY FREE SHIPPING* (to US addresses) - My single plates are shipped via First Class / flat rate priority mail sleeve (seller"s choice of FC with free shipping offer) inside a triple fold of corrugated cardboard for stiffening. If a plate is over 13 inches in length, or extra heavy or odd sized, it will be shipped as a standard Priority Mail package, but no additional shipping charges will be incurred.
If your shipping price is more than the actual shipping cost, you WILL receive a refund for the difference through your Paypal transaction.
If you"re worried about plates being damaged, be sure to contact me about paying extra for insurance. Tracking is always included with Priority Mail. No returns unless there was an error in the listing.
Refunds for USPS damaged items and return shipping will be available for all insured parcels.
Plates offered are original as shown, with original paint, unless clearly stated in the listing. All plates are also authentic, expired issues, which are legal to own and collect. I do NOT deal in reproductions, replicas, copies, fakes, or any other version of items manufactured to deceive - there"s enough of this type of crap offered on already.
All plates offered through PL8S.com and user me are over 3 years old and comply with all EBAY guidelines, restrictions and selling policies. All plates are authentic, expired issues, and are sold as collectibles only.
*PLEASE NOTE! I do offer SAME DAY shipping on the plates and items I"m offering. As I work the overnight/graveyard shift, same day refers to any business day (in my case, every day but Sunday or a postal holiday) - my business day ends at NOON (eastern time) - please take note of this, as items won and paid for before noon on any given day, will be shipped immediately - items won and paid AFTER 12 pm est will be mailed from 12 am est to 12 noon est the following day. Thanks! Drewski
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION concerning Canadian shipping
SHIPPING COSTS TO CANADA are dictated by the U.S. Postal Service. First Class shipping can go two ways - ENVELOPE or PARCEL/PACKAGE.
ENVELOPE FIRST CLASS is far cheaper, but it is required that the package be non-rigid (i.e. BENDABLE) ... I don"t recommend this rate, as it"s pretty much falsifying shipping information. If there are plates involved, they"re rigid - chances are, the package will either be returned, damaged in shipping, or returned to sender or delivered with postage due. My shipping calculator shows the rate for Parcel/Package First Class Air to Canada. Please don"t ask for lower rates, there are none. ________________________________________________________________________________
DISCOUNTS or BEST OFFERS on LISTED BIN ITEMS
PLEASE NOTE - Prices shown on my listings are firm as shown, unless they display the OBO (or Best Offer) button. I run sales on a regular basis, please subscribe/follow my listings or store for updates. I often will go through my entire listed stock, and knock back prices. ---
I usually will run a 15 - 25% sale when raising funds for a collection purchase, and will even drastically cut prices on some of my high end items, to raise some scratch in a hurry. Once the funds are raised, I tend to return the discounted listings to their previous price. This is why is always a good idea to follow my listings - you never know what will show up.
Please don"t contact me with discount price requests - I get many, and don"t have the time to wade through them on a daily basis - just watch your item, it could go down in price! Thanks all - Drewski - me , the ME Store.
CANADIAN BUYERS! Be sure to check off the proper shipping method. Priority Mail AND First Class Parcel are both offered. Priority Mail is pricey, First Class isn"t cheap, but is the cheapest method - generally, it"s $15.50 - this is good for up to two pounds.
