    Back Ordered Items

    Supply and demand problems occasionally occur in our business. From time to time, we have more buyers than sellers. If this should happen, we reserve the right to delay delivery of your Sales Order(s) up to 28 calendar days (from your expected shipping date) to fill your Sales Order. Provided that you have not defaulted in any term of your completed transaction, even if the price were to rise, your price is locked-in. We will deliver Bullion (non-Numismatic) Product within 28 calendar days. If your Sales Order included a Numismatic or supply item from GBS and we are sold out, we will either place it on back order, attempt to locate another or refund your original sales price, in our sole discretion. If a refund is provided or there is any delay in sending your Products, you waive any right to any claim or actual damages of any kind or nature whatsoever.


    Insurance for Sales Orders

    GBS insures all of its Sales Order shipments to you for the sale value of the enclosed Product purchased from GBS, subject to the following limitations. We must be notified of a lost package within thirty (30) days from the ship date of your order. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, you might be permitted to claim coverage under our insurance policy provided that you directly receive the package from the common carrier. Neither we, nor our insurance company, accepts (and we specifically disclaim) responsibility if you have left instructions with any carrier or delivery service to leave parcels for you without the need for your signature. Nor do we, nor our insurance company, accept (and we specifically disclaim) responsibility if you have given any carrier or delivery service instructions to leave your package with someone else, such as a building manager, neighbor, or a drop-off location such as Mail Boxes Etc., The UPS Store, or similar third party drop off locations. In any such case, your package will not be covered for insurance by GBS or our insurance carrier. If you do not receive the package directly from the common carrier, you agree to take all reasonable actions to assist in recovery of the package, including but not limited to filing out reports (and/or police reports) and providing all information needed or that may be requested to assist in recovery of the package. If you do not fully cooperate in recovery efforts, neither GBS, nor our insurance company or carrier, will have any liability to you.

    When we ship to you, if Products are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim. Once the claim is filed, we reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion, and GBS shall have no further responsibility or liability to you. If there is any disruption in the delivery of a package to you, you agree to cooperate with us in any investigation or claim process and to take every reasonable action requested of you in the process. Failure to fully cooperate will jeopardize coverage that may be provided to you
