i have rec'd several that way in my time here.  They were all wrapped with PBS wrapper w/ DC.  BUT no postage.  They arrived fine tho.

This one was in a bubble mailer with just my address & the return address printed on a business sticker, not even DC. The envelope looks brand new still too. Usually they're kind of dirty and wrinkled by the time they make it here after going through the postal procedures.

If the person lives close to you (or maybe was in the area of business/vacation/etc), he/she could have just dropped it in your mailbox and not actually mailed it.  I know some members have done this before.

I had that happen too.  I think that some folks just put the book in their mailbox, post man picks it up, then the folks fail to notice that the official lookinglabel on the packaging is not stamped.
