The lost Porpoceras…

I bought the ammonite in the picture above on eBay UK in the middle of December 2013 and had it sent to a friend in the Whitby area to save postage – and I did not want it to get lost in the Christmas post rush on the way to Germany.

The courier’s tracking log shows delivery on December 19, shortly before 6 pm – but our friend was not in at the time, no package was in the post box and no note to say where it was delivered instead. All searches around the house and inquiries at the neighbours brought up no result, the courier insists it was delivered – in effect it seems the ammonite is lost.

I was really looking forward to this ammonite – it looks like it could have been the center piece for the next post – Should it turn up anywhere, just let me know.

    They usually take it directly to the post Office Depot up near the leisure centre it might still be there now tell problem with that is you need some form of id to retrieve the package. So if you sent it to someone else’s address but you name then it will be in your name so I’d isn’t going to help. Contact them up there (if you already haven’t) if it was sent by recorded it will eventually arrive back at the sender. But if it was eBay it was recorded and no senders mark on means it’s despised of 😦 but still worth up at the depot sure it stays there for a month or two. Helpful when you play golf with local posties:-)
