    All things considered,what do you think is the best way to send a small packet of militaria from the US to the UK? I just sent one FedEx and it cost $96!There must be a more reasonable way.
    What about insurance?How does it interact with customs?
    Appreciate suggestions.
    Thanks for looking.

    If you post it through USPS it misses customs, and 9 out of 10 times misses the duty too....... I have stuff sent all of the time from various sources. No issues yet, and I've been doing it a long time

    USPS flat rate mail box works well for small items.Give the buyer the choice of tracking if He wants to pay extra.Make it clear customs and tax if it gets selected in UK are the buyers expense and not Yours.What at first seems a bargain suddenly isnt!!!

    I always use USPS, International signed for delivery. In fact, I insist upon it, so there will no claims of missing packages.
