I doubt the dates on the website are much more than manual corrections. Today it went from 07/14 to 07/27; I think the person who updates such dates went on vacation for a week and just got back.

Card was charged on 070711 from "OFC Dollar Coin"
071111 - Order was shipped
071211 - Order was received. I guess they do express overnight/before 10:30 am shipping.
