Order Placement and Inventory
No warranty is made, expressed or implied, which guarantees availability, or the correct description of any product. All orders placed with U.S. State Quarters.com (U.S.S.Q.) are subject to limitations on inventory. This system is designed to accept orders only, and does not provide inventory counts. Should it be possible to order an out of stock product through the site, a notice will be forwarded to the customer and any charge or authorization already processed for the item(s) will be reversed. Although every attempt to restock the item will be made, we do not provide "Rain Checks," or guarantee either product availability, or product / shipping prices should the same product become offered at a later time.

Shipping Times - When will your order ship?
Orders received are processed generally within 1 - 5 business days (Monday - Friday, as we are closed Sat/Sun) from the date of order placement. This holds true for 95% of the orders we receive, which consist of state and/or national park quarters, presidential dollars, folders, maps and many holders. During holidays and very busy promotional periods during new releases, shipment can extend to 5 - 7 business days due to sheer volume. Please remember that every individual coin we send out has to be inspected for quality and placed in a holder for shipping. As you can imagine this does take time especially when we are sending out thousands of coins each month. Delivery on the other hand, is handled by the US Postal Service, and can range from 2-5 business days depending on the method of service and distance to the destination from Santa Fe, NM, our offices. Your order should arrive in about 4 - 8 business days.
The remaining 5% generally ship in 5 - 7 business days (M-F). These are mostly older dated and/or graded coins which require grading checks prior to shipment, stamp orders, and coin sets which require assembly prior to shipping. Again, during extremely heavy periods this may extend a couple of days. We always make every effort to get your order out as soon as possible, but we will not skimp on quality for time. And we always send a shipment confirmation when your order goes out. Your order will arrive in about 7 -10 business days. (M-F)
Sometimes, on rare occasions, we get the order which requires special attention. Multiples of the same older dated graded coin, very large orders, multiple stamps are examples, some which require acquiring coins from a dealers' network. These can take 7- 10 days to process. In any event, if the timing is not sufficient, please let us know.
Should an order be placed containing either items that are backordered more than 30 days, out of stock, or unavailable, these items will be either immediately backordered and payment refunded (or voided) until shipment can take place or refunded (or voided) and cancelled. Should an order only contain these products, the order will be cancelled and refunded (or voided). Regardless, a notification will be sent to the email address on the order informing you as to the status of the order and options available.
In any event, we simply won't skimp on quality. We will be happy to recommend other dealers who can get orders out faster, or cheaper. Assuming they're still in business. We've seen more than a dozen come and go over the years. And so have our long term customers. They tell us. Over and over. Should you have any questions, please feel free to let us know. If you're having difficulty reaching us by phone, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be glad to help if we can. Thank you=)
Shipment and Delivery Policy
U.S. State Quarters.com Inc. will attempt to have the order you have placed delivered, via US Postal Service, to the shipping address provided. We will also forward a copy of the US Postal Service Tracking information to the email address provided on shipment so that you may track your order to its destination. Should you specify delivery to an insecure location, such as an office or other location where the order is to be left by the US Postal Service out of your immediate control, U.S. State Quarters.com, Inc will not assume liability for loss of, or damage to, your order. In this case, only the U.S. Postal Service tracking information will be considered as valid delivery verification. If this is not acceptable to you, please make certain the delivery of your order is to a secure, not public, location.
In the unlikely event that a package has been indicated by the US Postal Service as "Delivered" and the customer claims that the package has not been actually received by the recipient at a secure location, U.S. State Quarters.com Inc cannot be held liable for said package as theft of mail is unfortunately commonplace, regardless if the package was insured or not. To insure this does not occur please ask for a signature required delivery at checkout. Failure to notify U.S. State Quarters.com by email at email@example.com of failure of delivery on insured packages will forfeit any claim for reimbursement, reshipment, or any other compensation for non-delivery. Any claims regarding the unlikely event that an item is said to be missing from the order, must be made within the same 14 day period as noted above. Any claims after the 14-day window will be forfeited. Signature upon delivery will constitute the end of our liability for delivery only in any event, and all inquiries or claims on packages confirmed delivered with a signature must thereafter be processed with the US Postal Service directly. Should a package be lost or misdirected in transit, the US Postal Service requires 14 business days for Domestic Parcels, or 45 business days for International Parcels, to pass prior to filing an insurance claim, to give them a chance to locate the parcel. U.S. State Quarters.com Inc must be notified within sixty days of shipment for any lost or mis-directed International Shipment. Any claims after 60 days will not be honored as we are only allowed 60 days by the insurance claims department to file a claim. If you are concerned about the delivery, contact your carrier or local Postal Service office immediately. Although USSQ will take all steps possible to locate your parcel, ultimately the US Postal Service controls the parcel and its delivery. Upon request, we will have a claim form sent in order to file a claim for loss and the package reshipped. Should a Credit card chargeback or Paypal Dispute be initiated prior to any of these steps, please see the Credit Cards and Paypal Express Payments section above.
U.S. State Quarters.com Inc. maintains a 14-day return policy on all products sold, with the exception of Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium bullion. All Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium bullion items returned will be charged a flat 20% fee based on the total order amount. All coins returned must be in the original packaging. Any coins that have been removed from their respective holders or are returned after the 14-day period may not be accepted for return or, at our discretion. Credit for returns are generally processed within 10-14 days of receipt. We do not pay for return shipping charges.
All returns MUST be postmarked within 14-days of receipt. Returns initiated after 14 days from receipt will either not be accepted for return or will be made by store credit only, at our sole discretion. Under no circumstances will credits or refunds be processed without receipt or retention of original product(s) by U.S. State Quarters.com.
Exchanges may be made on any item, with the exception of one of a kind items, gold, silver, platinum coins and bullion. Exchanges may take 2-3 weeks to complete depending on the exchange and we reserve the right to process a refund rather than an exchange at our sole discretion based on availability. Exchanges due to product defect (not including original minted condition) may be made within 14 days of receipt, and return first class shipping charges only will be refunded if return is postmarked within 14 days of receipt. Optional additional shipping services purchased for a return or exchange are non-refundable. Product defects do not include packaging material, nor cardboard U.S. Mint packaging prior to the current year. Exchanges due to other than company error are subject to automatic reshipment charge of actual shipping costs.
Orders which are returned by the US Postal Service as Unclaimed or Refused by the customer will be refunded and canceled if possible. The order will be credited as an acceptable return and subject to a 5% restocking fee. On Acceptable returns postmarked within the 14-day period, we will refund the purchase price of items returned plus sales tax if applicable minus any restocking fee ONLY. Shipping/handling and insurance charges are non-refundable. In the event lower shipping fees were charged initially, actual shipping charges incurred by us but not charged initially will not be refunded.
Returns which do not include an original receipt (or other paperwork indicating where it came from) may be automatically restocked without credit, so PLEASE enclose identification with your return. NO unverified credits will be processed. We cannot be held responsible for returns that may have been lost in the mail. For returns due to production or shipping error, First Class return postage will gladly be refunded (lowest cost Priority Mail over 13 oz.), regardless of original shipping method or additional options used for the return. For this reason, we recommend using First Class Mail for returns where possible.
