    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    Just recently there have been post's regarding the service's of some long standing member's of the forum under the guise of "just asking the question" namely @BackyardBullion & @Numistacker. I don't know the in's and out's but if you go to a restaurant and get good service you give a tip, 10 -15%.I dont care if anyone makes a small % or not. They provide a service and I'm happy to pay for it. If you are questioning the cost of grading a coin or buying a coin down to the last pound then maybe just DIY and see if you can actually save money on a single coin or maybe grading isn't for you. For nearly all, these guys provide a valuable service and knowledge, on the best forum in the country. If anybody was "pulling a fast one" they would soon get found out, as other chancer's have found out. Keep going guys and dont let the "#######"s grind you down.

    Picked up my Apollo 11 coins today. FAB !!!. 6 days from USA to UK, brilliant service from US Mint. Only fly in the ointment was the VAT man getting his grubby mitts on them as well. One BU and one Proof, as there was only about $4 difference between the two I thought I would go for one of each., but IMO the Proof is the nicer. Just need to see if Numi can fix up one of those new double coin holders. Best part of the day, after boring my teenage son with loads of previous coins I finally got a " wow that is really cool" response. Priceless 👍👍👍
  9. Judging by the views expressed, I think it might be worth sending an email to RM just to see what the procedure is. I agree a low cert has kudos but is it actually what it is. Some adverts I've seen massively increase the price because of a low COA.

    Bought from Ebay raw and graded via Numi. Very pleased with the result. If anyone has any 2005 coins to sell then get in touch.
  11. So really not worth paying any extra premium for a low cert, not that I have, it could be the 1st coin or the 2000th coin off the press and bears no relation whatsoever to the cert. The cert just being a numerical reference to the number of coins minted.
  12. Has anyone ever been put off by buying a coin with a really high COA ? I recently had the chance to put this theory to to the test. I put two coins in for grading, both 2005, both similar size, a 1/10 Brit and a Half Sov, and both conserved. The results surprised me, don't get me wrong both got great grades and I'm not disappointed but if anything I thought it would be the other way round. Is there any reason why ? Just to add to the confusion I have a 2005 Sov graded at 70 with a COA in 9000's that wasn't conserved. Lots of head scratching.... Does anyone have a 70 higher than 9598 in anything ? So for what it's worth, in my experience dont be put off by a high COA go for it and if you're grading enjoy the highs and lows of that rollercoaster ride and hope the grading gods are smiling.
  13. Bit of a long shot this but if anyone has one for sale either graded or raw please PM me. Thanks
