    I thought for sure these were lost in the mail and with one of these being sort of a hard to get and for $54 I thought my great deal was a dream. But here they are...the collection is getting more exciting! 20210224_184816.jpg 20210224_184840.jpg 20210224_184856.jpg 20210224_184909.jpg 20210224_184946.jpg 20210224_185000.jpg

    potty dollar 1878 CRH,my only indian and oldest coin found.

    4 months geee and I thought my longest wait time of 3 weeks for a coin was bad enough.

    An architectural type. Neat!

    I'm glad to see both arrived safe and sound ... gives me hope for a lost coin from Germany despatched in mid December.

    Don't worry, my package to Slovakia just got delivered this week, shipped in early December. I think I read something about Germany especially having problems with mailing, but maybe i am mistaken.

    Yes this one was from Germany, so you should hopefully get yours soon.

    Between the Italian customs, COVID 19 and Italian one month vacation,
    It took 10 months for my package. This was 2019-20. I'm waiting on
    one from Germany mailed mid November.

    I have heard that with the overwhelming amount of mail trying to leave
    Germany and COVID 19 and so few flights, that the German postal service
    filled several containers and was shipping by cargo ship. I hope my package
    gets here before July.

    Great acquisitions! I also have one of them:
    Salonina (253-268), Antoninianus, Colonia mint.
    Obverse: SALONINA AVG, diademed and draped bust right, seen from the front, wearing stephane and resting on a crescent;
    Reverse: DEAE SE-GETIAE, statue of Segetia, nimbate, standing facing in four-columned temple, both hands raised;
    RIC 5

    I've had to wait up to a couple of months for some packages to arrive, but luckily none of them has been lost, so far.

    I had a package from Deutschland, that took almost 3 months to the day.
    It wasn't a coin just something for train layout.

    My faith was restored in the mail system. When I went to mark order delivered, the order was canceled by the auction and money refunded, I emailed the seller and contacted the auction and told them the order was delivered and all was good. I left seller positive feedback and will check to make sure he is paid ASAP.

    Edit: i just recieved a email from auction house. I have to bank wire the money to the Netherlands. I wonder what thats going to cost? They wont just let me pay another invoice with a bank card like orignal transaction.
