We have changed Approval Books Rule #B2 (Rules for Sellers) as indicated below in bold text:
B2. All items in a book must be directly related to philately and be in the chosen approval book category. "World-wide" and other non-listed categories must be posted in the "Other Misc. Items" category, and must be neatly arranged by country and/or topic.
Previously, world-wide books, and other books for which there was no category for were not permitted. After observing sales from several world-wide approval books that had been posted (yes, guys, I saw them), it was determined that these books tend to sell about as well as other approval books.
A word of caution! The term "neatly" means that the world-wide approval books are not to become a hodgepodge of mixed up stamps of one stamp from one country here and another there like a shuffled deck of cards, and floor sweepings. You must arrange the stamps in an orderly manner, that are sorted by country and/or topic. Any approval book that looks like a pre-schooler put it together will be removed by the auctioneer.
We hope this rule change is helpful.
