THESE TERMS OF SALE REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
These Terms of Sale apply to the purchase and sale of products and services through Rare Collectibles TV, LLC, and its affiliates (“RCTV,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).
Order Acceptance and Cancellation You agree that your order is an offer to buy, under these Terms of Sale, all products and services listed in your order. All orders must be accepted by us or we will not be obligated to sell the products or services to you. We may choose not to accept orders at our sole discretion at any time.
Purpose of Purchase; No Fiduciary Relationship. You agree that your purchases from us are collectible items and are neither investments nor consumer goods purchased for personal, family or household purposes, and that the decision to buy collectible items is entirely your own, and not based on advice or recommendations from RCTV or any of its representatives. You acknowledge and agree that your relationship with RCTV is that of retailer-customer at arm’s length, and is not a fiduciary relationship.
Prices and Payment Terms Prices posted on our Website may be different from prices offered by us through other sales venues. All prices, discounts, and promotions we offer are subject to change at any time without notice. The price charged for a product or service will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed. Posted prices do not include taxes or charges for shipping and processing. We strive to provide accurate price information. On occasion, we may make inadvertent typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions related to pricing and availability. We reserve the right to correct any errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time and to cancel any orders arising from such occurrences. From time to time, we may offer promotions that affect pricing and that are governed by terms and conditions separate from these Terms of Sale. If there is a conflict between the terms for a promotion and these Terms of Sale, the promotion terms will govern.
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion. When you make a payment to us using a credit card, you represent and warrant that: (i) the credit card information you supply to us is true, valid, correct and complete, (ii) you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase, (iii) charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company, and (iv) you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including shipping and processing charges and all applicable taxes, if any, regardless of the amount quoted at the time of your order.
Shipments and Deliveries We will arrange for shipment of the products to you. You will pay all shipping and processing charges specified during the ordering process. Shipping and processing charges cover reimbursement for the costs we incur in the processing, handling, packing, shipping, and delivery of your order.
Title and risk of loss pass to you upon delivery of the products to your designated address. Shipping and delivery dates are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in shipments.
Returns and Refunds RCTV provides a limited right of return and refund of your purchase price less the original shipping and processing costs, as follows:
- For sales under $50,000 RCTV will accept a return of the product(s) made within thirty (30) days of delivery;
- For sales between $50,001 and $300,000, RCTV will accept a return of the product(s) made within fourteen (14) days of delivery;
- For sales of $300,0001 or more, there is no right of return and all such sales are final.;
- For any special orders or products designated by RCTV as final sale or non-returnable, there is no right of return and all such sales are final.
IN ALL CASES, RETURNED ITEMS MUST BE IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONDITION AND PROTECTIVE CASING AND ACCOMPANIED BY VALID PROOF OF PURCHASE FROM RC TV. BEFORE RETURNING A PRODUCT, YOU MUST FIRST CALL THE RCTV CUSTOMER SERVICE LINE AT 1-800-581-7273 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8AM-5PM PACIFIC TIME TO OBTAIN A RETURN MERCHANDISE AUTHORIZATION (“RMA”) NUMBER. Include the RMA number with the merchandise you are sending back. This number ensures a rapid and secure refund or exchange of your merchandise. No returns of any type will be accepted without an RMA number. You are responsible for all shipping and processing charges on returned items. You bear the risk of loss during shipment. We therefore strongly recommend that you fully insure your return shipment against loss or damage and that you use a carrier that can provide you with proof of delivery for your protection. ALL PERMITTED RETURNS MAY BE SUBJECT TO A RESTOCKING FEE OF UP TO 15% OF THE SALE PRICE FOR EACH ITEM.
Merchandise availability on our Website is not guaranteed as it may be low in stock. If merchandise is not available by the time your order processes, we will notify you of this via e-mail. You can always verify availability by calling Customer Service at (800) 581-7273. You will receive a shipping confirmation e-mail once your items have shipped.
Warranty and Disclaimers Nearly all of the coins sold by RCTV are certified by the top two third-party grading services in the country: the Professional Coin Grading Service and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, and we rely on those grading services with respect to the authenticity and grade of certified coins. If we are offering a raw, uncertified coin, we guarantee its authenticity but not its grade. Grading is an art, not a science. Any condition, grade or description of any numismatic item sold is the opinion of the seller and is not a warranty of any kind. Whether numerical or adjectival grading is utilized, it represents the seller’s opinion as to the particular state of preservation that the numismatic item sold is in and may not necessarily correspond to the opinion of others. The price for which each item is sold represents the price that the sellers has offered, and the buyer paid, independent of any description by seller. Proof is a method of manufacture, and not a grade, and any designation of uncertified coins as proofs is an opinion, and not a warranty.
ALL PRODUCTS WE SELL ARE OFFERED “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY (A) WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY; (B) WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; OR (C) WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY; WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED BY LAW, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OF TRADE, OR OTHERWISE.
Limitation of Liability
IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR ENHANCED DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE, ARISING OUT OF, OR RELATING TO, AND/OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY BREACH OF THESE TERMS OF SALE, REGARDLESS OF (A) WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE, (B) WHETHER OR NOT WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND (C) THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. OUR SOLE AND ENTIRE MAXIMUM LIABILITY AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE PRODUCTS YOU HAVE ORDERED FROM US.
The limitation of liability set forth above shall (i) only apply to the extent permitted by law and (ii) not apply to (A) liability resulting from our gross negligence or willful misconduct and (B) death or bodily injury proximately caused by our acts or omissions.
Resolution of Claims or Disputes RCTV hopes to make you a happy customer and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly by calling customer service at 1-(800)-581-7273. You and RCTV agree that in the event of a dispute, the complaining party will send the other party a written Notice of Dispute, and the other party will be given 30 days to cure any problem before the complaining party commences arbitration as provided below.

These rules and procedures are available by calling the AAA or visiting its Web site at www.adr.org. The exclusive venue of any arbitration under these Terms of Sale shall be Los Angeles County, California, and the governing law shall be that of California, without reference to choice of law rules. You acknowledge and agree that each party shall pay the fees and costs of its own counsel, experts and witnesses.. You agree that you may bring claims against us only in an individual capacity and not in a class action or representative proceeding, and an arbitrator shall have no authority to award class-wide relief. You acknowledge and agree that these Terms of Sale specifically prohibit you from commencing any court or arbitration proceeding as a representative of others or joining in any court or arbitration proceeding brought by any other person.
No Waivers The failure by us to enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Sale will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of RCTV.
No Third-Party Beneficiaries These Terms of Sale do not and are not intended to confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than you.
Severability If any provision of these Terms of Sale is declared or found to be unlawful, unenforceable or void, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent that it is found unlawful, unenforceable or void and the remainder of the provision and all other provisions shall remain fully enforceable.
