Funny/Bad USPS Story

5 posts in this topic

I was laid up recently after foot surgery.


I needed to ship a coin, but had no means to get to the post office.


I asked my wife to ship it for me, with explicit instructions to add delivery conf and insurance for $450.


So, the USPS guys asks her if she needs insurance, and she says, "yes, 450".


USPS guy translates that (reasonably, too), as "for $50".


Luckily, the package made its way to the honest buyer, but it could've been bad.


Don't make this same mistake!

Ouch, that's bad! Glad it arrived safely..... I always am nervous about sending coins in the mail, especially key dates, I would've been a nervous wreck!


Sorry to hear about your foot surgery, hope you're doing and feeling better. :)
