A former radio DJ who was ordered to pay a symbolic $1 to Taylor Swift for groping her at a photo op says he mailed her a Sacagawea coin last week, but she claims she hasn't received it.
David Mueller provided a letter to The Associated Press showing the payment was sent November 28.
Mueller previously told the AP he intended the coin featuring a prominent Native American woman as a final jab at the singer in a case her side called a win for all women.
Mueller had sued Swift claiming she falsely accused him of groping her and sought up to $3 million.

A federal jury in Denver ruled for Swift, who recounted a taxing timetable of events from the sexual assault trial in her profile for Time Magazine's Person of the Year as one of the 'Silence Breakers' who influenced the #MeToo outcry.
In the story published Wednesday, she claimed she hadn't received the dollar.

She said: 'To this day he has not paid me that ... and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself.'
The 27-year-old singer also talked about how she felt while testifying during the trial.
'When I testified, I had already been in court all week and had to watch this man's attorney bully, badger and harass my team including my mother over inane details and ridiculous minutiae, accusing them, and me, of lying,' Swift said in the Time interview.
She recalled moments when she felt utterly defeated, even before winning the case in which she requested the iconic $1 from Mueller in return.
'Even when you win, even when you have the financial ability to defend yourself ... there are still so many people who feel victimized, afraid and silenced by their abusers and circumstances.'
In her profile for Time Magazine's Person of the Year as one of the 'Silence Breakers' who influenced the #MeToo outcry, Swift said: 'To this day he has not paid me that ... and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself.'
Moving forward from the trial, the 'Gorgeous' crooner revealed she has received overwhelming support from fans and others who have been in similar situations.
'People have been largely very supportive of my story since the trial began in August, but before that, I spent two years reading headlines referring to it as 'The Taylor Swift Butt Grab Case' with internet trolls making a joke about what happened to me,' she said of the lingering case.
'The details were all skewed, as they often are. Most people thought I was suing him. There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant.

'Once it hit the news that I was in Denver dealing with this, there was an outpouring of support on social media and I have never appreciated it more,' she added in her Time profile.
'I spoke to Kesha on the phone and it really helped to talk to someone who had been through the demoralizing court process.'
Swift posed alongside other women on the annual cover - which also included actress and Harvey Weinstein accuser, Ashley Judd.
'The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover … along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s,' Time's Editor-in-Chief, Edward Felsenthal said of the new and renowned cover.
