UPDATE - GOOD NEWS: Need some advice on USPS claim
UPDATE at bottom of page 1.
About a month ago I shipped a couple coins to a forum member here using a flat rate box. Fully insured with signature confirmation required. The package never arrived. Instead the signature and address on the confirmation look like someone made little squiggles. They didn't even try to fake it.
I waited the required 15 days and failed a claim, and included all the documentation the USPS asks for. I received a snail mail letter just a few days later, today, stating the claim was denied. (amazing response time!)
In all my years of shipping coins, this is the first issue I've had. Apparently shipping coins to Maryland is no bueno right now, even after they just busted someone on the inside.
Can anyone who's been through this already offer me any tips? Is there a big dog USPS employee in Maryland that you might point me to? I plan to file an appeal, but I'm fearful they'll just claim it was delivered.
Thank you in advance.
