Just thought I'd share something wierd. I ordered a book that was on my wishlist in July, it never showed up and was marked lost in the mail. A few weeks ago the book came up again and I got it.

Today the one that was lost in the mail showed up. The wierd part, it has no postage on it, no post mark, but somehow it still got delivered to me. It wasn't delivered postage due either. It has the printed label taped on a manila evelope and nothing else.

That is weird! Maybe the postage sticker came/fell off?

Did it have a DC bar on it? If I have several books to mail or an international request from another site-I got the PO to mail them.  Many times I have stopped the clerk from just putting the books in the bin. They see the label and think it's got postage on it especially if it's got the DC bar.  I had to point out that they still need postage.

No it didn't have a DC tag on it. Nothing but the label with my address.

No dull area with residual from possible glue from poatage sticker or stamps??  Sometimes they fall off, but sometimes strange thingslike this happen, too.
