I posted i had several packages ripped off when i first started collecting.     I mail differently today and w/ caution.     I write on back of package "Bible readings" or other creative comments to keep thieves away.    Contacted the FBI several times along w/ the postal inspector.     Word got out to ALL the rural mail carriers that the Fed was looking into stolen packages.    I even drove to nearby town that mail goes thru, 1 1/2 hrs away, and told the postal employees i am the one that lost packages and am working w/ Feds to stop post office employee thefts.     I have lost zero since then.    Our hot spot was the distribution center in Pendleton OR.     The thefts for me happened at time frame of X mas or Holidays when temporary employees are hired.    It pays to ring bells w/ FBI even when they ignore you and ask you to contact post office, word gets out.......Contact all coin dealers in your area w/ NGC numbers.....

I had a coin stolen by a post office employee in a  post office hub Sandstone VA ..packages a sent there by local post offices as it is close t the airport and that is the jump off post office .the postal inspectors caught the guy .. long time employee with a drug habit ... It was a $150 panda and i did not insure it .The postal inspectors found my outer packaging in this guys garbage can.Along with multiple packages including from the blue nile the diamond company.Well post office paid me nothing ,the crook got long probation .Lost his job and owes me restitution. Needless to say i have received nothing . The post office did keep me informed of the disposition of the case the whole way.

It doesn't take much for local post office staff to figure out what their regular customers do and ship. Luckily, professionalism, rules and regulations prevent mayhem but there will always be a few rotten eggs in every human institution.

I noticed that the post person in our neighborhood changed very often, sometimes less than a month. Is there a regulation in USPS that requires such changes to avoid such things?

After 20 days without a pickup scan, the package finally scanned on 19th and delivered on the 20th.  In all these years never seen such a delayed pick-up.  What is ironic is I had sent a text to the seller that morning letting him know that I notified dealers and collectors about the stolen NGC serial number, hours later it was picked up by the post office, just lucky I guess.

Always good to give people the benefit of the doubt, but it sure sounds like he "forgot" to ship it.
