Wow, bad luck. It's a real pity that kind of stuff happens. I once received a box set of Stephen King paperback books from the UK with one of them being limited to just 100 copies that the end fork from a fork truck had obviously ran through. Half of the books were trash, but luckily not the limited one. I filed a complaint with the USA UPS, and was sent a new set from the publisher, and got to keep the damaged books, so at least it all worked out in the end.

Closer examination revealed that the damage to the jiffy bag had meant that it had been torn open and stuck together with very strong adhesive tape. On opening the album is in no fit state to be given to anyone perhaps the culprit has an hatred of "Panini" and "The World of Batman" failing that probably the large jiffy bag did not fit in well with the Mail authorities automatic sorting machines. Only 9 sticker packs appear to have survived the mauling. I suspect that the damage occurred in the US as I cannot envisage the Royal Mail here in the UK having such strong adhesive tape. At least it arrived.John


I did not know that the UK has only weak adhesive tape. Big Grin

But whither it happened here or there, jiffy bags are not suitable protection to use when mailing. Sorting machines and mail processors really do destroy stuff sometimes. Frown

In my experience another clue regarding the packaging is that the British Royal Mail usually if the package is partially destroyed by them they wil put it into a plastic bag without repairing the damage and attach a note apologising for the accident. Well anyway that's what they did the last it happened to me and that was a long while ago.

regards

John
