I don't have any experience with Papillon, but if the coin was left in your mail box November 9th and you never received it, try contacting your local post office.
Unfortunately the post office is not collecting signatures due to the pandemic. I haven't signed for any delivery, USPS, Fedex or DHL in months.
One more note: USPS tracking has become quite erratic, especially for tracked first class international mail. I have had items delivered that were never marked "delivered" in the tracking system and are still in transit.
One more suggestion: The coin might have been delivered to another address. One more than one occasion I have received mail belonging to nearby neighbors. You might want to inquire with your next door neighbors.
I had a shipment from Budapest arrive five days quicker than one from Phoenix. Had a shipment from Alaska make it to Atlanta in three days, First Class Mail.
There's no rhyme or reason these days.
I have a P.O box, and when a signature is required they leave a slip that I take to the clerk, they bring me the package, and I sign for it there. So I sign for all of my coins sent to the box unless the seller doesn't require a signature. The only way the package itself would be left in the box is if no signature is required, which isn't a very smart way to ship a coin internationally.
Auction houses that use FedEx or DHL, they don't ship to P.O. boxes and aren't taking signatures, so I re-direct the packages so that I can pick them up at the local FedEx and DHL locations.
It's the Mail after all.
I expect delays, that's why I didn't check the tracking until today. French post says the package was left in my mailbox on November 9th, but I never received it.
They should also be able to GPS the delivery location and see an image of the signature.
Go down to your Local PO with the tracking number and have them run the tracking and figure out what happened.
No they never do that. The only packages left in the box are those that don't require a signature. If this package was left in the box, no signature was required.
My order from Oct. 24 was supposed to be delivered Nov. 3-Nov. 20 still isn't here...
More importantly, they will find out which COURIER scanned it in as delivered.
I cannot tell you how many times I've had a package reported as "delivered" that wasn't in the box. I've gotten into the habit of requesting text notifications on all incoming packages with tracking. If the package isn't in the box when I get the text, I call my local Postmaster immediately.
Wherever it was, my package usually gets hand delivered to our office within an hour or two of my call.
Me and Jermaine ( my local Postmaster) are now on first name basis.
This has been my experience also. When I bring it to the seller's attention, and/or my local postmaster, it is amazing how fast they can find a package, even a package from overseas.
The postal product they use does not require a signature. It has a tracking number but it is not a registered letter. This is why they charge so cheap for it. In fact the stamp on the envelope had half of the cost I paid for posting so they are even making a profit out of it.
I recently had a package with tracking "get stuck" in one of the Postal hubs for 10 days without moving. The hub is in Atlanta, which I am in a suburb of. 10 days and they couldn't get it 4 miles to my local Post Office.
I initiated an investigation as though it was a misdelivered or stolen package. I had it in two days.
I have two items inbound right now that are showing "in transit, arriving late" that will have investigations initiated TODAY.
That usually works like an overdose of ExLax in clearing the log jam. These have been showing this since before Thanksgiving.
