Mayflower silvers purchased same time as gold still show 'processing' on the mints page.
Check your shipping label and you will notice that the U.S. Mint uses a third party shipper (fulfillment center) and does not ship directly from the Mint. This adds a headache to the quotient. Add to that, that tracking is not always scanned at every stop so it's hard to keep track. Most shipping is actually getting better overall. Try like I do, using media mail for my CD and DVD sales and the headaches enlarge even worse as media items can stay in a truck until that truck is fully loaded before it moves.
Only way to get it moving faster is filing a lost package claim if it sits anywhere for 2 days without a tracking update, and then they will retrieve it from the pile and move it again since they don't want to pay out the insurance on the lost package.
that only works with tracked packages and letters though, if it's untracked, it gets there when it gets there if at all.
Yep, all your rural route folks are contracted temps. Even your small post office's do not have postmasters anymore. They are considered sales associates. There's really no way to climb the ladder anymore and I don't wonder why a lot of them are angry people.
He shipped the two in a small envelop, USPS tracking said Friday by 8 pm, then when that didnt happen it was Saturday by 8 pm, nope .....so no plane come Sunday , hope they come monday...well they did....and honestly I could drove down and back a heck a lot faster.
Not knocking the post office....it is what it is.....and CV-19 has effected each of us more ways than one.
About 15 years ago, I won a Morgan $ on eBay, and before I could pay for it, I received a note from the seller. He asked me if I would like to save the cost of the postage and insurance because we only lived about one mile from one another.
