    Mike reacted to Numistacker in NGC Grading Submissions Open   
    That is also my understanding. NGC have opened a UK office and coins can be submitted there if you are an NGC member.
    Collector members and Authorized Dealers may submit coins directly to our offices in the United States or to NGC UK. You can submit coins and track your order 24/7 if you are a paid member of NGC UK. Submissions are in-person ONLY not by post and appointments need to be pre-arranged.
    NGC Advise - Submit through an NGC UK Authorized Dealer such as Numistacker 
    "You can submit coins through one of the many NGC UK Authorized Dealers that accept submissions from the public. No membership is required". I am a UK authorised dealer authorised by NGC to accept submissions on behalf of NGC from the public.
    Mostly I choose to direct submit to NGC in Florida however if you have a consignment that you specifically wish to submit via NGC UK I am happy to submit via NGC UK rather than NGC USA. There is a published price list for NGC UK services https://www.ngccoin.uk/submit/services-fees/ and these fees and services are liable to VAT at 20% on top for most members of the Silver Forum. https://www.ngccoin.uk/legal/vat-collection/ 
    If you wish to make a submission and want to take advantage of the full insurance UK to USA that NGC UK offer please mention this to me when you consign and I will submit your coins via NGC UK. Please note however that costs WILL be higher particularly for add-on services, tier fees, NCS services etc should you decide to submit this way.
    To summarise:
    I offer FULL submission and conservation services provided via NGC UK and NGC USA.

    I’ll tell you the question shortly, there’s a precious metals forum setup where they all think they swapping ideas for stacking and collecting, they are actually a simulation to work out what the ultinate question is 😂

    I hope this is possible, but @MickD won a spontaneous cryptic quiz I set earlier today and won a £20 longest reigning monarch coin, which he has declined but suggested it be added to the Christmas prize draw?  So if it doesn't mess up the numbers etc can this be an extra prize?

    Someone from Yorkshire wanting a freebie???  I was once told that a Yorkshireman is a Scotsman that has been stripped of his sense of generosity...However:
    Here’s my test case....In the UK, a 10 digit grid ref is no use if you don’t know which map to use (normally 2 letters precede a grid ref - eg GR 12345 67890
    So my thought was to test how cryptic I could get away with to point someone at a hill and then they work out the clues to grid ref, but I’ve not done this before so wanted a test case!
    BUT, since you asked so nicely (?), I will throw a longest reigning monarch, £20 coin, p&p included to the first person to get the answer right...

    Just reading up on it and four people have died looking for it, and some folk have got as close as 60m to it and missed it, the guy (he's still alive) reckons.

    Are we sure this guy in not the biggest wind-up merchant ever?!!
    If not I reckon a crack team of five us or so could find that stash quicksmart!
