    Today I received a couple of fractional gold coins from member @ToDaMoon . Came with the most secure packaging anyone could ever ask for. He went to all the trouble of hollowing out a hard cover children's Santa book and concealing the coins within the book and then taping the book shut. To a postal worker this would have just been a kids Santa's book. To me this was a great way of concealing the contents and protecting the coins. He then went the extra mile and bubble wrapped the whole book as well. The coins arrived in excellent condition. Here are the photos, thanks @ToDaMoon .:)

    Good way to add weight to the package so it doesn't "float" away during transit

    On March 1st. 2021 parcel and satchel rates are going up again. Yesterday my local Post Office confirmed it. In an email they said:

    We'll be introducing a 2.5% price increase across our retail domestic parcel products; which includes Parcel Post, Express Post and Return Paid items.

    Might buy a couple of pre-paid packs of 10.:)
