WB, Wheaties and me
I barely ever post to the journal, not my thing to be put out here in the public forum like this but, something happened both these past few weeks and today that really made me feel as though I needed to.
I will start with the fact that as with most mornings I heard the familiar honk of my mail person at about ten AM to tell me I had to sign for a package. I went outside and did the normal deal and came inside to open my bounty. For the third time in about a month, a

I am about to move and even though I sent my coins in to be graded via registered priority mail, it still took four days. So, I asked my mail person how long registered mail generally takes and they said it could take up to twenty days.
Does anyone have advice on this. I've already paid for Express grading service for my first six coins (inherited a huge non-graded collection) however, I really didn't think much about the mails turnaround times and marked registered mail for the return rout
