Great, but why is it in customs so long? Bureaucratic red tape?

Hope you don't think this is a "told you so"
But I had every confidence it would arrive.

Sometimes from my dealer in North America I would wait 3 months
The Postal system has let me down once, in 20 years.

(My first swap to Yugoslavia)

Nice to see you have your precious cargo at last

Rod,

My lack of confidence comes from experience. I've lost a lot of stamps to US Customs or USPS.

Right.
That must be very distressing Postmaster.
I recall the anguish when my 5Kg of mounts were 3 months late
Thought I had lost that one.

It isn't just NY holding up stamps.

I live in Atlanta, GA and just last week had a package of stamps I ordered from the Netherlands stopped and opened by customs. Luckily they did not hold them for long. I think the fact the seller sent them with a copy of my eBay invoice helped them realize there was no wrongdoing or espionage at foot.
