Get your detective hat as I am confused about the following:

1) I won the auction on E-bay for an Hitachi CED stylus (CTG100) on 12/27/17.

2) I paid for the stylus on 12/27/17.

3) On 12.29.17, I received a package in the mail. I opened it up and there was an Hitachi CED stylus (CTG100) in it with nothing else in the box. The shipping label is dated 12/27/17. Now, the seller for the stylus I won on 12/27 is stationed in Canada. The box I received on 12.29 was sent from Sweet Grass, Montana. What gives? The stylus I bought on 12/27 is due to get to me between Jan. 4 and 8. According to E-bay, the 12/27 stylus was shipped on 12/31. Methinks that I may be receiving another stylus which seems wrong to me (I know that postal regulations say that If you receive something in the mail that you did not order, you can keep the item.)

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on here?

Sweet Grass is just across the border from Canada. It's probably cheaper and faster to go across the border and ship using USPS, and maybe they were planning such a trip anyway. Ebay typically uses a shipping time that is calculated by the way the seller sets up his listings, like he may be adding some time for packing/handling. They'll show a receive by shipping date often later than the date you actually get the package, and the seller gets an automatic 5 stars on shipping time for that. I consistently have this happen that I get a package before the day ebay states, except when it's something from out of the country.
