I might suggest another possibility.
A friend of a friend told me he purchased a small 'antiquity' from a foreign country...where exports are examined and packages are x-ray'd.
His small antiquity was received hidden in his package among a group of common small, recognizable tourist junk items.
These other cheap items were used to 'mask' his item from x-ray to get it into the country.
It is possible that these packages of junk are used for smuggling, where contraband items are removed en-route or in the post office...with the
remaining package and masking items going on to it's random destination.
