    I have a shipment from Zeus equally stuck in transport. Another shipment from Artemide to be dispatched one of these days.
    I'm not too worried about late arrivals.
    My view: if it's over 2000 years old, what's another three weeks...

    Be safe everyone and good luck coin hunting:)

    Hi ,

    thanks you, you have understood my post. Nothing about dealers or buyers in it just a reality. Sorry if some people take it at first degree as an offense.

    Good news I have received all my coins won at Artemide elite auction 12 in March all sent by Austria Post to Belgium by registred letter. Because of Covid19 the postman ring the bell , put the package in front of my door and go away not asking me to sign. After checking I wrote a mail to Artemide to tell them that I received my coins and all was OK.

    I got one too from Zeus. Tracking provided on 20 March, no movement until 2 days ago, when appeared in Bruxelles. I got it this morning, 200+ km and one border away.

    I have a coin coming from the USA to the UK and it has taken almost a fortnight to leave the US, which it has today.
    I have patience. As long as it arrives.....

    If anyone else is waiting on coins from Tauler & Fau in Spain, I received notice this morning that they're mailing out my coin from their e-auction 53 of March 3. Hopeful sign that things are loosening up a bit over there but fingers still crossed.

    I received a package from San Marino yesterday.

    I paid on 3/17 and they were shipped on 3/18. They arrived just a smidge under a month.

    Anything coming thru NYC should be handled with care - let it sit for a few days before opening - be safe!

    I haven't bought any coins in awhile, a few parcels from other things have been going missing with everything going off so didn't want to risk it.

    All my European shipments are being sent DHL, so it's good to hear that is still operating normally.
