5. Grading & Authenticity
- Grades and descriptions of rare coins are opinions, not statements of
fact or guarantees, and are based on standards and interpretations that
can and do change over time. Dmpldollar.com uses contemporary grading
standards and interpretations to grade coins and relies upon the
opinions or independent grading services such as the Professional Coin
Grading Service, the Numismatic Guaranty Corp., and ANACS. Each of these
grading services is recognized by the coin industry for its expertise.
Each firm guarantees the grade and certifies each coin to be
authentic. Don Rinkor Rare Coins relies upon those guarantees in selling
coins. However, we do not guarantee that the coins we sell will
achieve the same grade from any independent grading service in the
future and expressly disclaim any other warranties with respect to the
coins, expressed or implied, including the implied warranties of
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. All coins are
guaranteed genuine and are graded by ANA standards.
- The coin market is volatile and thinly capitalized and therefore
subject to substantial fluctuations including significant and rapid
increases and decreases in value from time to time. Investors must be
able to assume the risk of such price fluctuations. For that reason,
rare coins are not a suitable investment for everyone. Due to market
volatility, all prices are subject to change. In the event there is a
price change on your order, you will be notified and given the option of
accepting the price change, dropping the item from your order, or
canceling your order altogether.
7. Unregulated State of the Rare Coin Market
- At present, there are no restrictions or regulations on the sale,
purchase, or ownership of rare coins. This fact provides certain tax
and privacy advantages. However, there is no guarantee that, in the
future, these benefits will not be restricted or totally removed by
government regulation. CA residents should add 9.25% sales tax to
purchases under $1500. No sales tax on investments in excess of $1500.
8. Bid Price
