Rembrandt Lost In Post

It seems as though the Norwegian postal service is as efficient as Royal Mail. It has lost this Rembrandt etching of Lieven Willemsz van Coppenol, Writing Master (c. 1658) valued at up to £5,400 ($8,600). The Soli Brug Gallery in Greaaker, Norway, sent the etching by regular mail, because it wanted to avoid the cost of couriers and insurance. Bad move! The package couldn't be found. The gallery has been offered peanuts in compensation (CLICK). Live and learn.
