How do you determine your stamp prices?

Our prices are set as a percentage of Scott catalog values for very fine stamps.  Conditions other than very fine, such as extra fine (xf) of fine (f) will have increased or decreased percentages.  As new catalogs are issued by Scott, we enter any changed values and our store prices are changed automatically.  Faults or other discrepancies as noted in the Description column will lower the calculated price.  Conversely, enhancements or other beneficial elements will raise the calculated price.  It is very time consuming to check and change values in our large inventory and, occasionally, we fall behind in our updates.  Accordingly, we reserve the right to make price adjustments to the listed prices in any order if a new Scott catalog has been issued and prices have not been adjusted.  If such an event should occur, the customer will be notified before the order is concluded and paid.
