DON"T DO IT! USE AMPEX or GOLDLINE or Ebay
NWTM was recommended to me by a friend since he had several good experiences, some years ago. I assumed that the negative reviews were from a small minority of customers. Surely, a company with this many bad reviews couldn't continue in business! I placed a silver order on October 31, 2014 and received a projected ship window of February 9, 2015. On the final day of the window, I received an email stating that the new ship date would be no later than March 9, 2015. I had not received any notification of shipment, so I called and was told that NW Mint needed an additional 4-6 weeks to ship my order. Several more calls with the same excuses. I have now received this order, my first and last. This operation sounds like a Ponzi scheme, looks like a Ponzi scheme, and most likely is. Use caution in ordering from this company and be prepared to lose your money when they close the doors!
