Correct, between boot and wire.  If you used a thumbnail to lift away the
edge of the boot, you saw that the brass connector was right there.

No.  But the boot overlapped only about 1mm onto the wire.

Actually, I wondered if for some reason the insulator shrunk, ie, once upon
a time it may have covered 5-6mm of the wire, but with heat (or cold?)
shrank so it only covered 1mm.

As for defective, that is my working hypothesis, specifically that this was
the wrong sized boot for the connector.

I'm just beside myself.  Why we even have a Federal post office is beyond
