I saw that listing on Amazon some time ago and gave it a thought. I mean for 7 or 8 bucks it might be neat to see what you get. Same with the 25 Buffalo nickels listing but that one has poorer reviews. Post some pics when the new order comes in!

Here's a page from the instructions that may answer your question:



There are many styles and brands of security mailboxes. I am not endorsing this particular brand for any profit. It's just an example.

Today the USPS Informed Delivery email let me know that one of the Liberty Head nickels I bought on eBay will be delivered today. :)

I'll pounce on that mailbox soon!

I may post a pic of the coin in "new acquisition" thread.

Sorry you are having someone help themselves to your mail.

I hope they are in time caught as that is a pretty serious offense.

Glad you were able to find something to help you and I will be watching for a pic of your new addition.

The mailbox is very rural Australian looking !

Nevertheless, in very remote rural Australia, the old 44 gallon drum an a pair if crossed 4x2's is still quite a common sight.

There is still the open trust that the mail won't get stolen.
Rural neighbors depend on each other. All passing travelers respect that sort of co dependent trust.

Austin, TX's "sister city" is Adelaide, Australia. I don't live in Austin, and the pic is not in Austin, but the climate is similar.

We are currently in moderate drought conditions, and the picture above was taken in the dead of winter when the grasses are brown with no substantial recent rain. ((And NO snow of course!) Poor cattle and ranchers!

Time to go check the mailbox...

Glad you got your money back. Your new locking mailbox sounds like it should be the perfect solution to the problem.

Hey! I just posted in one USPS thread about informed delivery.

The link:

https://informeddelivery.usps.com/b...start.action

I'm always a day late and a silver dollar short.

Thank you Parkland64, for posting the link to the USPS Informed Delivery web page. I should have done that in the initial post.

I've found it to be a great tool. I bought a few coins from eBay after getting that app, and the USPS email I received each morning (before 8am) preceded the afternoon delivery every time.

Each coin was safely recovered. :)

Yes.. completely agree.
There is actually an updated USPS informed delivery setting you must now update to get even more detailed updates. You will know when a package is scheduled, and exactly when it is delivered. Great service. They even have a way to see images of the front of all the envelopes that are delivered to your mailbox each day. Way cool!

I also am signed-up for UPS and FEDEX tracking apps, so I also know when something is scheduled and delivered for any of these services as well.

Really helps me know exactly when a package I am waiting for is on the way and exactly when delivered.

Highly recommend these apps for everyone!
