A Cornville man said $1,260 worth of rare coins were stolen from his residential mailbox over the weekend.

He said he bought 40 Morgan silver dollars from a Phoenix-area coin dealer and was under the impression they would be delivered via FedEx or UPS, according to a Yavapai County Sheriff's news release.

Instead, the man confirmed the package was mailed on Jan. 3 and delivered to his residential mailbox by a U.S. Postal Service carrier the next day.
