Probably because most people only know their fist five and that is all they enter when they fill out forms asking their address. Most ordering software will allow you to enter all nine but few people do it and since the Post office can usually still deliver with just the first five (if they have the rest of the address) there is usually no problem.
Address validation/verification software used by most companies automatically fill in the ZIP+4 required by the USPS to get cheaper delivery rates. One would think that a government company, like the Mint, would use such software.
They don't do 9 digit zips.
That's our government, can't do anything the right way.
I have never had a problem ordering from the mint.
Me neither, but casman did!
The mint usually gets it right. They are the largest coin dealer in the world so they're bound to make a mistake every once in awhile. If it were me I would be relentless and insisting that they owe me the coin.
992 of them, + $34.95 S&H!
Her reply: Excellent!! You will receive a refund. Anything Else I can do?
I replied: Yes delete my account.
Her reply: That must be done in writing addressed to.....and be sure to fill it out properly otherwise it won't reach the destination.
I told her she was a smart A.
She disconnected citing my comment
"Distribution of the Hudson Half Dollars was supposed to take place through the Hudson Sesquicentennial Committee via the First National Bank and Trust of Hudson at an issue price of $1 per coin. Only a few days after the start of sales, a complete sell out of the 10,000 mintage was announced. It is said that two coin dealers had purchased nearly the entire amount in a bulk transaction. These coins were soon offered by the dealers at inflated prices, since they controlled the majority of the supply."
WOW, I don't know what else you could possibly do.
