U.S Post Office strikes again on all collectors

silver dollar


new regulation states that all coins and notes must be sent registered mail...minimum cost...$8.00

just down to my friendly post office, and the guy that knows my business let me know that a new directive had just came out that forthwith all coins and currency that could be spent..in other words was considered legal tender...now had to be sent by registered mail. that means that if you buy a $2.00 coin, the shipper would need to charge you about $10.00 for first class registered mail to send it to you. that now solves the ebay problem. who can afford to sell a coin on ebay for 2 or 3 dollars, pay the listing fee and the final value fee, and then pay 10 dollars s/h? the only coins that would make that cut off is those that sell in the multi hundred dollar range, maybe. and what will this do to the larger dealers who move hundreds of coins a month on ebay or mail order sales? the economy just bit us in the as* again. hurrah for the good ole USPS
