Help with returning a coin to Switzerland
I would appreciate any suggestions for Board members about a reasonably priced and safe method of returning a coin to a dealer in Switzerland. I won the coin at auction for $1700 US. USPS will not allow me to ship the coin via Priority Mail or Global Shipping because of it being a coin. I cannot send it registered because its purchase price exceeded $400. I could just stick it in the mail, but that obviously poses risks. I could also send it registered and give its value at $400 (which perhaps isn't too far off, as our hosts determined it was cleaned, contrary to the dealer's express assurances that it wasn't). DHL, Fed Ex and UPS are all at about $100 or more for shipping.
Anybody have any thoughts? This shouldn't be so complicated/expensive!
