Hi,

The shipping charde was a total of $54.01, which comprised of post & packing
$15.91, and International delivery $38.10.

I'd have to call that a convenience price.

I've not checked since a recent USPS rate increase, but
sending international priority to the UK is reliable, and postage costs about $25 for a flat rate envelope.

If yours was a box such as 5 x 9 x 12 inches weighing a kilo, it could go for $26 plus packing costs
according to http://www.nerdylorrin.net/jerry/postages/index.html#1stClassIntlPkgs, maybe $32 total.

$54 instead of $32 is 70% extra...
