current Status of registered mail
Shipped 2 gold coins over the past few weeks via registered mail.
The first was sent the last week of December from NYC to a suburb of Buffalo. The coin departed the PO On Dec 29 and arrived in Jamaica, NY on Dec 31. I had no updates so on Friday January 8 I e-mailed the PO to inquire if there was any movement. On Monday Jan 11 I was alerted that the coin was now in Buffalo. I expected the coin to be delivered within a day. Late on Jan 13 I asked again where the coin was and received a response on Jan 14 that the coin was out for delivery. The final delivery date was the 14th so about 2 weeks to reach it's destination.
The second coin was shipped from a small town in Mass also registered mail. I dropped off the coin on Jan7. I received an update on the 8th so all looked ok. I asked for a new update on Jan 11. The coin reached a Virginia suburb on Jan 13 and was delivered on the 14th. One week delivery? Excellent.
Anecdotal but that's how my current shipments went. I wish the PO would update their shipments without my having to ask.
