Has the Post Office ever lost your high school yearbooks or something else important you shipped?

Read in the Atlanta Journal Constitution about week ago (March 7) online that the U.S. Post Office is letting a new online company GovDeals.com, who put in a winning bid somewhere, to soon auction off lost articles that ended up in the Mail Recovery Center. That means, although it could help the post office start operating in the black, or at least more efficiently, that if you lose something you sent in the mail, you would probably now have to locate, bid, and buy your own property back. So I'm trying to decide, 6 months later, how long to keep trying to locate some irreplaceable missing books, including yearbooks, which were probably sold in an auction around December in a book lot to an unknown buyer or buyers in Georgia (and am waiting for insurance claim to be paid, but would still like those yearbooks back).

    Yes. Twice. Both shipments should have been sent UPS ground or Fed-Ex; some were a bundle of rare photographs that I was supposed to publish, and another one that was finely printed material. Nothing of value should be sent USPS unless it is insured, and certified with return receipt.

    Fortunately, they are now contracting with Fed-Ex and UPS on many parcel shipments, and I have never ever had a problem with any of these good 'ol private enterprise capitalist carriers...
