Post by iceman » Sat Aug 07, 2021 12:38 am

Hi To all
Just lost a some PCGS coins via the post office . So I want to replace a 1879S rev 78 VAM 34A in MS , mine that was lost is a MS62 . I know its a hard one , but I thought maybe I would ask . Please PM if you have one to part with .

Thanks
John

PS: Under the discussion section I have the 2 coins that USPS lost , the Certs and Photo's . Yep USPS says they are Sorry !!
Argh that dont cut it . Now PCGS has to pay the insured cost . ( Im venting about this)

Bad news for sure; that’s why I keep a PO Box for anything; surprised too that PCGS does not use registered mail. Good luck; at least coins were insured.

Vamnuke
Great Idea about a PO box , I will get one . I am on vacation so I didnt get this delivered to home and got it delivered to work
or at least it was supposed to . Well anyways I escalated the issue with USPS , they sent the EMAIL of saying issue Solved
we are Sorry we cant find it . LOL . Well I escalated it with USPS and said you have GPS tracking on where it got signed and
sent photos of what was in the package . I also contacted PCGS and informed them . I really just want the coins and that all .
But as Vamnuke said a PO box is a Great thing , this would I think eliminate some of the Human errors in delivery . But Yep it sucks when you have to deal with this on vacation , and it was a Express PCGS that took 30 plus days . So it was a tidal
wave of variables . I had PCGS verify shipping to my work since it took so long . Just a really big kick in the **** .
But Thanks to all giving me suggestions on how to correct this in the future .
If totally loss I guess maybe file a police report might be prudent . But off course I have to wait till USPS get thru with this and
also PCGS to figure what else can be done , Since its insured I would think ownership if found would be to PCGS .
Please correct me if Im wrong , But I always play by the book .

Thanks
John

And Thanks for all the ideas and help on this from everyone . It just really sucks and I will have to take these coins off my registry at PCGS , but keep them in my inventory so I know if someone gets them and request them back .

To All
Yesterday the package from PCGS came in , Yep the one Post Lady found it . She had the day off when it was delivered
and So she searched around after the case was closed by USPS and found it . Great Lady !!! SO the coins are found and
are home now . But still I will get a PO BOX like suggested by the crew !!! So a Happy ending on this !!!

Thanks
John
