International Shipping of Band Organ Rolls
By Nicholas Simons

Andy Adams asks for suggestions about international shipping.  Some
years ago, when I was increasing my collections of rolls, I purchased
a lot from the USA.  The cheapest shipping method was to use postal
"M Bag" service.  It took a little longer than UPS but cost much less.

Some years previous to that I had them sent surface mail, which was
much cheaper still but could take up to eight weeks, but someone told
me that that was no longer possible.  I don't know how true that is.

 [ There has been mention of "M Bags" in the MMD before:
 [ http://www.mmdigest.com/Archives/Digests/200801/2008.01.03.01.html

 [ and in your previous posting:

 [ It seems that the "M" bag is cost effective if you have several
 [ rolls to ship.  I'm wondering if Andy should arrange to have an
 [ "agent" in the UK or on the mainland of Europe and ship a bunch
 [ of inventory there so it can be redistributed from there ?  --Jody
