It appears that NorthWest Territorial Mint routinely sells products they don't actually have in stock. I purchased some silver on December 1, 2014 and the estimated shipping date is projected as January 23, 2015. If and when I ever get my shipment from NWTM it will be the first and last purchase I make with them. In contrast I have made two gold purchases from APMEX with outstanding results!!! I received each order within 7 days of ordering. I would highly recommend APMEX! Gainesville Coins is pretty good too, but not nearly as good as APMEX.
