This is a rare original pp, roughly 8" in diameter with a dark grey background, that I purchased from a guy around 9/15. After my payment, he mailed it to me in San Antonio by priority mail thru the US Postal system, not fedex or ups. It was left on my front porch by the postal carrier on Friday, 9/30 at 4:33 pm. We know this because of the tracking information available thru the tracking number. No one was home then and there was no requirement that I sign for it.
In most cases the sender can simply add the feature that says the receiving party must sign for the delivery in person or it will not be left on the porch or in the box. If not home you can go get it at a post office.
So since it was "delivered" by the post office by being left on my porch, I am probably out of luck with them, although still trying. Any insurance thru them will not apply according to them at this stage. That leaves my homeowners insurance and that has a 1% deductible. In short, I am screwed!! This is a case of "porch pirates" as they are sometimes called. they follow delivery trucks waiting for a package to be left on a porch. It has turned into a huge problem all over, not just in San Antonio.
Had there been a requirement to sign there would be no problem. I did not specifically ask the sender to use that so part is my fault. I just thought they would because of the $$ involved.
So asking for help if this shows up.
