Easy solution to semi-complex mailing problem.
For those of you that sent your addresses to receive a bunch of error wheats, I threw a bunch (About 25) into a Zip lock bag, put that in a padded envelope and went to the Post Office to have it weighed to see what it was going to cost me to mail out bunches of pennies. The lady at the counter was gracious and weighed it out, but told me that the coins couldn't clink together in the package or they couldn't accept it. Hmmmm
Went back home and while fixing a sandwich, was watching my other half package Hamburger patties in our vacuum food sealer and decided to try with the pennies. I spread them out, vacuum sealed them in and it worked like a charm. The Envelope was even flatter. An added benefit was that the coins don't rub together either. Would be handy for mailing more than 1 raw High grade coins.
Why didn't someone tell me about this? Anyway if any of you have to ship a bunch of loose coins, rather than a coin roll and a box to hold them, vacuum seal them and use a padded envelope mailer. Works like a charm.
Coins will go out as soon as I receive my order of Padded envelopes. The one I used is my last one!
If you haven't PM'd me your address, I still have a lot of error wheats to send out to whoever wants them to put back into circulation, give away, etc.
