Quite possibly, they were tying to practise 'social distancing'......I'd have sent the package 'registered'.......
I like the post/hate the content.
Yes, there is. The parties should have just met up as Westport in Connecticut and NYC are not all that far from each other. Sending such valuable coins a short distance like this was not worth the risk.
Another possibility is it was an inside job, Who took it to the PO to mail? Could the seller have shorted the package himself and retaped it ? Usually when something comes out of a postal package in route, it is marked by the postal service if they retaped or otherwise fixed the package.
Kind of makes me wonder if the weight of the coins didn't split the envelope and 2 fell out. Probably sitting in the mail recovery center somewhere.
It's getting worse every day. The new PMG issued orders this week. No OT whatsoever, applies to all crafts. OIC, 204B and all Detail assignments are cancelled and will be no more. No extra or late trucks. If the mail doesn't make the first truck it sits at the plant for the next day. Any mail arriving at the PO later then the DUT or that can't be sorted by the DUT deadline, sits at the office until the next day. If you are down a route, and can't get it delivered without causing OT, it isn't to be delivered. If carriers do not get in by the time the last truck leaves.....that outgoing mail waits for the first truck the next day.
And people thought it couldn't get any worse.
Just to satisfy my curiosity I checked. The driving distance from NYC to Westport, Ct is 52 miles on I95
Can you Register boxes? It's a service that exchanges more hands and receives better care. This has been known to happen with Priority from time to time. Plus if the addresses were really 52 miles apart I'd actually have taken the time to drive there. It's a lot of money to lose.
And I have an example here.. This is how I have shipped some hefty foreign coin lots (some weighing 20-40 lbs.)
I'd like to know how someone can take contents out of here without creating suspicion at the post office.
Other than driving it there no. Things like that and much more valuable things go through the USPS mail all the time. The hope diamond was mailed once as an example. NY is a known hub for theft unfortunately, but even then over 99% of the time the package would have gotten there fine. It just happened to cross the wrong person and get stolen
