Shipping coins in the United States is a terrifying ordeal.
We've all heard the horror stories these last few months about lost and stolen coins. Tonight, I was expecting my return shipment from CAC with a pair of double eagles, a five gold, and a Cam Proof 3CN. Out for delivery was the message this AM, so I patiently waited into the evening. So I check the status about 7 pm, dark thirty here in the eastern US. I get this...........
Your item was delivered to an individual at the address at 6:54 pm on February 15, 2022 in CLEVELAND, TN 37312.
Delivered, Left with Individual

What individual? What address? I have nothing in the mailbox. Found a 10' x 10" box leaned up against a column at the edge of our front porch. Very much visible from the street. Wife and I had been home all evening. Not so much as a doorbell ring. Lot of good shipping registered when your local delivery leaves the package on the front porch. Am I going to win that argument one day when USPS says it was delivered and I find no package due to thievery? Will the insurance pay in that instance?
On a better note, went 4 green beans out of 5 submitted. End rant.
