Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If they refuse to honor the claim, despite the contents being missing, now you have to file suit against the post office in federal court for the value of the package contents. You bear the burden of proving what was in the package initially and the value of the contents and since the USPS cannot prove the contents were not in there, other than by recorded weight of the package when shipped, the court would likely make them pay if you file the suit.
