Lost Danish Relics Page

This is an old page but I ran across it again and thought I would add it. Legally these no longer belong to me as the USPS has settled my claim, but I would still love to find that candy red dagger.

Thanks for checking out this page.

The items below were shipped from Denmark on 10-30-09, entered the US on 11-06-09, spent the next week in customs and were sent out 11-12-09. I recieved the package on 11-16-09... empty, only the outer cardboard sleeve arrived. The items were packaged in two cardboard sleeves, the inner sleeve got "lost" at some point along the way. The sender and I have both filed claims with our post offices, but I wanted to let everyone know about these items.

Update: After a year they have closed the case and sent me a check for $99.77, on a claim of $3,200.
I would still like to find them, if anyone sees these items turn up for sale, please let me know.
