About a month ago, a USPS package was delivered to the office suite next door to mine. The receptionist signed for my package (at the wrong address). She place the package on their countertop on that Friday afternoon and closed early. When I tracked the package, it showed "delivered". When the package was missing from my office, I went to the suites in our building. All of the suites were closed for the weekend. The tracking information showed that it was delivered to my address. On Monday, I checked again the other suites again. The receptionist next door admitted that she signed for the package and left it on their countertop. But, she did not know where it was! The story gets better... The seller contacted me that weekend to tell me that he thinks he sent me the wrong roll of Morgan dollars along with the $33 face of silver quarters (around $400 value). I told him the package was missing but it was showing delivered. He actually insured the package for $900. After several days of asking all of the suites in my building and the building next door, the package finally appeared on Wednesday of that week. Indeed the seller sent the wrong Morgans! what a mess! I really don't know if I would have had a claim if the package went missing. I really don't know what USPS would have done since the receptionist next door signed for a package at the wrong address. The experience was so stressful that I have been very reluctant buy anything since then.

Since it was signed for USPS would have been off the hook. And potentially the receptionist would have been on the hook since she signed for it. You would have had to try to get satisfaction from them.

Wow! I am glad it all settled in the end, but that would have really done a number on my stress level.

It's funny how once the word got out that I was looking for a package, it suddenly appeared. It actually crossed my mind that someone was suspicious that the "heavy" box contained something other than coins. I work in a medical complex and the box could have easily been X-rayed. Paranoia right? I just remember the receptionist next door saying to me with a funny look on her face "The package was really heavy!". At least the OP and I had a happy ending. I mean the packages finally appeared! The coin life is good!

This happens so much. Carriers tend to read the numbers but don't focus enough on the street name.
