Quote: "dick7coins"USPS is the least expensive but the last site I visited the USPS rate was about $25.00. I would not spend that for a $5.00 coin.Hold on - what coin do you want?
Quote: "dick7coins"Is there an inexpensive way to ship coins from South American countries to USA. In this case Venezuela, but other countries also. Everything I looked at is outrageously expensive.No through their postal service, as most of the packages are going through some sort of verifications for narcotics, similar to postal from Colombia.
Quote: "dick7coins"Funny you should say that. I have had thoughts about flying to Venezuela since I can fly for free, but I am not sure how safe it would be at this time. I am not a coin collector like you folks are (at least not yet) As you may or may not have read in my intro, 35 or so years ago I bought two big bag of foreign coins and threw them in my safe and never looked at them until now. With not being able to book meetings it gave me something to do. I have a contact in Venezuela and him and I have an idea, but shipping made it prohibitive.I surely don't want to sound like a "killjoy" here but are you sure you want to fly into any major city in Venezuela? (COVID19 would be the least of your worries). I just talked to a Venezuelan lady & she told me that any of her friends/family (who remain) drive bullet-proof Hummers & only travel during the day, run traffic lights (they never stop for fear of being robbed/killed). Sadly, lawlessness & chaotic violence is 24/7 norm (according to her). Here's the latest US travel advisory.
