Shows ready for Pick Up on the USPS site for tracking. Is this common?
This is the new normal. Nothing seems to be like it was this time last year. Just about everything seems to take longer nowadays.
My shipment arrived today at the post office after 3 weeks with no info other than "your shipment has been delayed but will be delivered to the shipping label address"(not exact wording but as I remember). I have been scared to death it was lost. I truly do not care how long it takes, but there is absolutely no excuse for the USPS not to be able to tell you where it is with a tracking number. Tell me it's on a truck broken down or anything, not "we don't know or have any way to tell you at this time". This is the most important shipment I have sent and yet I have spent 3 weeks in terror of the outcome. If it takes a week for PCGS to pick it up, sobeit, I'll gladly wait. At least I know where it is.
USPS is late? COVID
FedEx is late? COVID
UPS is late? COVID
Paperboy not on time? COVID
Long lines at the grocery checkout? COVID
Got a zit? COVID
Late for work? COVID
Butt itches? COVID
I find it hard to believe that after an entire year this is the norm. Everyone's excuse for not getting the job done is still COVID.

Yep... Lots of sad tales with USPS, UPS, Fedex, ...Not so much with Amazon... they say 3 days and 3 days it is... Of course, they are not shipping coins - are they? Cheers, RickO
Everything here is about as fast as it has ever been once it gets to PA.
Amazon is on the porch before the credit card registers a payment.
PCGS...Not so much. ONE coin re-holder has been there since mid DECEMBER.
My Saint Set
last week I filed a "Refund" request with eBay on an item from Canada. it was mailed around the 10th of January. prior to that I had asked my Bank for a charge-back on an item I purchased around December 10th from Texas. the damage done to USPS service starting around August of 2020 will take a long time to fix.
as mentioned above, Amazon has become the better option. if at all possible I now buy from them simply because their system actually moves things along.
