John Edgar Hoover (January 1, 1895 – May 2, 1972) was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. Appointed director of the Bureau of Investigation—predecessor to the FBI—in 1924, he was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972 at age 77. Hoover is credited with building the FBI into a large and efficient crime-fighting agency, and with instituting a number of modernizations to police technology, such as a centralized fingerprint file and forensic laboratories.
Late in life and after his death Hoover became a controversial figure, as evidence of his secretive actions became known. His critics have accused him of exceeding the jurisdiction of the FBI. He used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders, and to collect evidence using illegal methods. Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten sitting Presidents. According to President Harry S Truman, Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force; Truman stated that "we want no Gestapo or secret police. FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail...Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him".

We have had a great amount of success internationally and want to do what we can to continue to sell our items worldwide. Unfortunately in order to show proof of shipping, we now have to ship items out of the United States, except Canada , registered mail which is $20.00 additional shipping fee. There are too many orders which are not being received in a timely fashion, or lost etc. and this apparently is the only way to keep both of us honest. We understand that some postal systems are very slow once it leaves the border and apparently this is now the only way we can both be protected by the Seller and Buyer Protection Programs within .. We do allow you to combine sale wins, and will not charge the .25 cent additional fee per item on all international orders except Canada. This should allow bulk buyers and our regulars to benefit from dealing with us.

We send all items in a reinforced mailer or protected envelope. Each mailer costs about $1.00 and oversized costs us more. Plus tape gas etc. In other words these are extras which people seem to overlook or expect us to take a loss on in the end. We also have a shipper help package the items so that you can get your items more quickly.

We are one of the last who have had to change our out of the USA shipping charges. This is done simply because of lost items, and items delivered in a very slow fashion by out of the USA postal services. Also because to keep up with ’s expectations with us a seller.
