Purchaser acknowledges that all grading of merchandise sold by Commodore Coins & Collectibles, Ltd. and/or our partners have been determined by independent grading services, and/or by us. Purchaser acknowledges that the grading of antique Arms and Armor and all collectible tangible assets are subjective and accordingly may differ among independent grading services, antique dealers and estate or auction appraisers of collectible tangible assets and that such grading may have a material effect on the ultimate value of the merchandise.

There can be no claim that any verbal description of the merchandise, provided by us and /or partners, varies and/or alters the description contained on the web site.  All merchandise is unconditionally guaranteed genuine or your money back.


No returns will be accepted for coins that are certified by any third-party numismatic grading service, including but not limited to PCGS, NGC, ANACS, or other reputable coin authentication and grading services based in the U.S. All sales of certified coins are final. In the event a certified coin is later determined to be counterfeit, purchaser must deal directly with the grading service that authenticated the coin for resolution of any dispute.


Commodore Coins & Collectibles, Ltd. guarantees that all uncertified or “raw” coins sold on its website are genuine and authentic. If any coin is determined to be counterfeit, a full refund will be issued, provided the coin is returned within 30 days of purchase in its original unaltered state and packaging and accompanied by proof from a recognized third-party coin grading service that the coin is not genuine. Buyer is responsible for any coin grading fees and all shipping costs. We cannot guarantee that paper certificates of authenticity (COA’s) or 2” x 2” paper inserts in plastic coin flips that accompany uncertified coins from certain shipwrecks are original as certain shipwrecks such as the Nuestra Señora de Atocha, the 1715 Spanish Fleet, and other wrecks had numerous types and styles of certificates of authentication issued over the years by numerous parties associated with their recovery and salvage. If a COA is deemed counterfeit by a recognized expert in these types of COA’s, we will issue buyer a refund provided the coin and COA are returned within 30 days of purchase in their original unaltered state and packaging. There will be no refund after 30 days of purchase.


Commodore Coins & Collectibles, Ltd. does its best to describe each coin in detail and provides clear close-up photographs of the coin’s appearance, as well as weight in grams for certain coins such as Spanish or Spanish Colonial cobs. It is the buyer’s responsibility to request additional photos or information if needed prior to making a purchase and we will be happy to accommodate. However, Commodore Coins & Collectibles, Ltd. makes no guarantees or representations regrading any numerical grade or condition of any coins for sale. Coin grading is an art, not an exact science, and therefore any opinions on grading may not agree with the opinion of others (including trained experts), and the same expert may not grade the same coin with the same grade at two different times, as grading standards change over time. Furthermore, countries outside the U.S. have differing numismatic grading scales and standards that often do not correspond with or recognize U.S. standards or numerical levels of preservation. Coins that may not attain a numerical grade by U.S. numismatic grading standards often sell in foreign countries with little to no reduction in market value. In some cases, depending on rarity or provenance, certain coins can sell for far more outside the U.S. even though said coins may not attain a numerical grade by U.S. grading standards.

Most coins have some forms of contact marks, nicks, dings, scratches or hairline scratches, toning, or other surface conditions resulting from environmental exposure, circulation, use, previous preservation, etc. Some pieces (especially those salvaged from shipwrecks or found in the ground) may display corrosion, harsh cleaning, rust stains, pitting, horn silver deposits, or other forms of environmental effects. In addition, some coins may have been cleaned or conserved (either properly or improperly), placed in jewelry at some point, had the rims filed, had holes drilled in them or holes plugged, clipped in the past (where a slice of the coin was cut off) or otherwise had their original surfaces or design altered. All uncertified coins are sold as is and all sales on uncertified coins are final unless said item is deemed counterfeit or misidentified as to date, mint, or country of origin.

If a customer submits a misdescribed or over graded coin to a third-party coin certification service for authentication or grading and notifies Commodore of such submission within ten (10) days of the date of mailing or other delivery, we will continue to recognize a return privilege for thirty (30) days after customer’s receipt of said coin.


No returns will be accepted for any estate, antique or custom-made jewelry, artifacts, or antiques unless said item(s) are damaged in transit or deemed counterfeit. All sales on jewelry items, artifacts or antiques are final.


If you receive your order and the item(s) enclosed are found to be damaged in transit, we will issue a refund once the item(s) are returned. We will need to see a photo of the damages to the item(s) so we can properly handle your request. We will not be able to accept your claim for a damaged item beyond 15 days from the date you received the item(s). Buyer is responsible for shipping costs.


Returns are accepted only if post marked within 10 days of receipt of goods. All sales are final after 10 days. Returns will not be accepted on merchandise that has been altered or damaged after shipment. You are responsible for the return shipping and insurance costs. Please use a return shipping method that issues tracking numbers so you can ensure the item is safely and timely returned to our Returns Department. Shipping and handling charges are non-refundable.
