delivery
The act by which the res or substance thereof is placed within the actual or constructive possession or control of another. Poor v. American Locomotive Co., C.C.A.I11., 67 F.2d 626, 630.

Absolute and conditional delivery.
An absolute delivery, as distinguished from conditional delivery or delivery in escrow, is one which is complete upon the actual transfer of the instrument from the possession of the grantor. A conditional delivery is one which passes the thing subject to delivery from the possession of the grantor, but is not to be completed by possession of the grantee, or a third person as his agent, until the happening of a specified event. One of the exceptions to parol evidence rule which permits introduction of evidence to the effect that document was delivered on condition that something be done and it is understood that document does not become operative until such action be taken.
+ conditional delivery
Issuance of an instrument with the understanding that the instrument is ineffective, that is, the maker or drawer is not liable thereon, unless and until a specified event, i.e., a condition precedent, occurs
@ actual delivery
@ constructive delivery
Actual and constructive delivery.
Actual delivery consists in the giving real possession to the vendee or his servants or special agents who are identified with him in law and represent him. It is a formal immediate transfer of the property to the vendee. Constructive delivery is a general term, comprehending all those acts which, although not truly conferring a real possession of the thing sold on the vendee, have been held, by construction of law, equivalent to acts of real delivery.
A constructive delivery of personalty takes place when the goods are set apart and notice given to the person to whom they are to be delivered, or when, without actual transfer of the goods or their symbol, the conduct of the parties is such as to be inconsistent with any other supposition than that there has been a change in the nature of the holding. "Constructive delivery" is a term comprehending all those acts which, although not truly conferring a real possession of the vendee, have been held by construction of law equivalent to acts of real delivery. Lakeview Gardens, Inc. v. State ex rel. Schneider, Kan., 557 P.2d 1286, 1290.
See also symbolical delivery.
+ constructive delivery
The recognition of the act of intending that title to property be transferred to someone, even though the actual, physical delivery of the property is not made (because of difficulty, impossibility) (e.g., the transfer of a key to a safe constructively delivers the contents of the safe).
