The world's most trusted source in collecting

I sold it on the 'bay and shipped it international priority mail, which supposedly takes 6-10 business days. We're currently at 15 business days and counting and the item has not been delivered. This is the most valuable card I have ever owned (albeit briefly) and needless to say losing that sale would hurt a ton!
The item was shipped to Queensland, Australia and the last update on the tracking was that it left Miami, FL on June 3rd. My question is directed at our friendly Australian members but if anybody else has any insights I would welcome them!
Have there been any shipping issues were packages get delayed in customs or anything of that nature? The buyer and I agreed to put the value at $400 so that it wouldn't be held up, but is this at least a possibility? And if so, wouldn't it have been scanned first so at least I know it got to Australia safely? Any help would be immensely appreciated.
Also, I guess if anybody tries to sell you that card on the cheap, report it stolen

There really is no time limit to how long a regular post service will take including priority and any other service through USPS and UPS...
The tracking on everything is never consistent and only the Express services actually get updated....
Packages can be held at customs for a number of reasons, but i don't think it will be flagged as the declared value is under $1000 US...
I would not be worried about it, for at least a month!
