This company did eventually ship what I ordered. The wait on a ~200 dollar order of silver and gold was about six weeks. The condition of the metal was excellent. The price was great, but the shipping time was too long. There are better options for those who need faster shipping. This was my first precious metal purchase. If I would have researched better, I would have found the reviews that explained the slow shipping. I at least got what I paid for on a "short sale". I bought it and a few weeks later the price dropped, so NWTM made some extra cash by this deal. Good for them. Now I understand how this business works.
