Hi :) Was just wondering what the unknown codes stand for when books are scanned for tracking. I have seen the unknown-PC and Unknown-OF codes before but not the Unknown-DX one. Does that mean there is an issue with the package? Thank you for your help!

Those are the USPS codes used at branchs for incoming deliveries.  Don't recall exactly what the PC means, maybe that it's in sorting. 

Unknown OF = Out for Delivery. 

Not sure what the DX means...might check with your PO b/c typically the next entery should have been 'delivered'  This could mean delivery attempted/notice left, on the wrong delivery vehicle, or a problem with address?

Thank you for the response, Denise :) It was delivered yesterday around 5pm, but was never scanned again, apparently after the Unknown-DX scan. Very strange but glad I received my books!
