Shipping and handling within the United States -- $12; International shipping and handling -- $30.) Shipping will be via USPS Priority, insured mail.

Purchase will be by credit card only. The bid form will be time-stamped and sequentially numbered - if more than one person submits a purchase form at the same time, the lowest numbered form will be the accepted buyer.
