    morezone got a reaction from Oldun in Today I received.....   
    Received some coins back from NGC after 2 months.  NGC messed up and then USPS messed up but luckily the USPS issue ended up in my favour in this instance.
    NGC graded some coins and then sent them back.  As soon as I was able to, I checked the grades and images only to find they'd not applied the GB label as paid for.  No biggie! I would have just got credited back for it and just left them on the brown label.  Someone made a mistake which is understandable since no one is perfect.  NGC will change labels at their expense but I wouldn't have bothered with the hassle.  Looking at the other coins I noticed mistake 2 and 3.  They'd put the wrong labels on 2 coins!  This time there is no excuse
    Overlooking one coin is a possibility.  Miss a second and someone isn't actually doing their job.
    Now I have no choice but to send the coins back.  The problem is the coins are finalised and shipped the same day so it's too late to contact them if errors are noticed.  I track the coins through a phone app with push notifications and it reaches Jamaica NY depot but instead of being forwarded and departing Newark for the UK it travels back to Tampa FL a couple of days later.  I'm thinking it's been mis-sorted and will turn back around but nope, it ends up going back to Sarasota FL.  What was nerve racking was the impending storm that was about to hit Florida.  NGC had already closed it's office a could of days before so now my package would be sitting at the Post Office over the weekend and for a few days afterwards.  I sent them an email explaining that some coins needed label corrections and the package had been returned to them without leaving the US.  Just hoped that Irma wouldn't cause any damage to Post Office etc.  Ending up being fine and NGC picked up the parcel and the coins went back into their system for label corrections.  Since I was going to have to return the coins anyway, the parcel being returned back to NGC worked in my favour.  I expected the label corrections to be expedited but it wasn't the case and still took a couple of weeks before they were shipped back to me.  Again I follow the package (I track all packages) and this time it goes smoothly and lands with me this morning 10 days after shipping from NGC.

    Dug up some old pics.
    Air-tite direct fit and ringed.  Smooth edge caps.  Standard 1oz gold is 32mm.
    You could also use Perth Mint original caps.  Not cheap though but smooth edge and good quality. http://www.silber-corner.de/de/Original-Kapsel-fuer-1-Oz-Gold-Nugget/Kangaroo/Lunar-I-Perth-Mint

    Now that I've got a few mins.  Yesterday's slabs.
    2017 Pristrucci 3 coin set, Strike on the Day and BU 5 Sov all came back 70.
    2005 Australian Sov was originally treated as bullion so 69 or less was expected.  The centennial Bi-Met Sov got a low grade due to the milk spotting on the silver.
    Pleased with the 70 on the £1 and the £2 was as expected.  The coins from that set were not mint.
    All the 1/10 China Lunars came back 70 so happy with those.

    I'm not sure if they continued with the lunar privy series on the gold.  The silver one started in 2013 with the snake and has continued each year since.

    The intercept SL50 will hold around 64 in standard configuration of 32 per row.

    It'll  hold 70 as 5 x 7 per row.

    I have mine all in sleeves and labelled and will hold 30 per row.

    I use this box so I can label my slabs and I can fit more slabs in the same volume compared to NGC ones.
