Delivery Delays and Stock Shortages

The recent drop in gold and silver prices has caused a spike in demand, which has emptied the shelves and caused delays for many precious metal dealers. Below is a table of current (April 2, 2013) messages regarding delays shortages.  I commend the dealers who state which items are out of stock or delayed, so we have a clearer picture of what is happening in the markets.
