Condition:    All folders are originals. I do not sell copies. Some originals may be discolored as they are 40 to 60+ years old.

All folders are original and useable for service. Contact me if condition is critical and I will check the condition of any particular folder for you before you place your order.

I am no longer making several trips each week to the post office and there is no free shipping unless ordering five or more folders and contacting me first so I can email you an invoice you can click on to pay for your order. Originals are still available via US Mail but may take 2 - 3 business days for the USPS to pick up here at my home office. All Photofacts will now be sent Priority Mail until further notice. A priority mail charge of $9.90 will be added to each Photofact ordered.

* PLEASE NOTE:    These are original Photofact folders, not copies. Quantities are limited but I am constantly replenishing my inventory. These folders are mostly used and have been acquired from many sources including closed service shops, libraries, estates, etc. Please do not order multiple folders of the same number without contacting me first to check availability.

NOTE: Folders marked "Servicer" or sets marked with an A (example: 97A) are generally schematics only and do not contain photos or other service data typically found in a full Photofact.
