Plus no doubt he will have binned the packaging by now.
If you can ask the PO what the system is in that area, ie leave a card and
collect at PO or charge made at the door.
The ask the recipient exactly how and where the extra charge was made.
If the PO is adamant that it has to be collected then ask him about the
sticker on the envelope when the postman asked for money....meaning as you
know it is not done that way and he says it

We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
drugs began to take hold. I remember "Mungo \"Two Sheds\" Toadfoot"

Is the right answer.
Oddly enough, I had a very late Xmas card arrive just last week with a
notice saying 'RM have diverted this item to a cheaper route due to
insufficient postage'. The total fuckwits, it had the normal value stamp
on it for coming here from there.
Relatedly - I just got an ebay parcel from Israel, containing an
electronic unit - covered with stickers showing Customs (here or there)
had poked their noses in and An Post had re-sealed it after Customs had
been effing careless with their re-sealing efforts.
Much fun- now I'm on a list. Again.
