A party to or purchaser for value in good faith of a document of title other than a bill of lading relying in either case upon the description in the document of the goods may recover from the issuer damages caused by the nonreceipt or misdescription of the goods, except to the extent that the document conspicuously indicates that the issuer does not know whether any part or all of the goods in fact were received or conform to the description, as where the description is in terms of marks or labels of kind, quantity, or condition, or the receipt or description is qualified by "contents, condition, and quality unknown," "said to contain," or the like, if this indication is true, or the party or purchaser otherwise has notice.
