NGC Grading Submissions Open

Recommended Posts

When to ask me to submit via NGC UK

Most submissions I receive do not state a preference so I choose to submit them via NGC USA  however so far a couple of you have specifically asked me to submit to NGC UK so I wanted to let the rest of you know why you MAY want to select specifically NGC UK for submissions.

Speed

Usually the estimated in-house time from submission to collection is about 30 days via NGC UK as ALL submissions are expedited even value tier and NCS. 

Insurance

NGC UK provide both ways insurance (NGC USA submissions are insured only for the return)

Cost

Regular grading services work out a few pounds more expensive generally with NGC UK and NCS conservation can be up to £8 per coin more expensive with NGC UK. Some specialist services are more expensive with NGC UK but this can be worth it (see both points above).

SO - Please include a request for NGC UK submission in the envelope with the coins if you DO want your coins specifically submitted via NGC UK rather than USA direct submissions.

 

conservation can’t be done outwith the USA anyway.

I just saw an email that said NGC now do double coin holders... would  have been perfect for alternate versions or error coins compared to non-error coins. 

That would be excellent. I have some medal sets (mostly silver-bronze) and this option would suit them perfectly. An example below.

@Numistacker do we have anything on this?

Just a brief question: Did someone here send a laqueured gold coin to NCS/NGC (or PCGS), and was the outcome satisfying?

In the end, the coin was auctioned off to someone else, so I can't try on my own at the moment.

What do you mean with laquered? Who does such cruel things to coins?

Who? Don't know.

How? The coins are covered with a layer of colorless lacquer.

Why? You often see it as a rather old method of conserving base metal coins, especially those from, or high in, zinc. It is preventing the surface from corroding on air. I don't know how often it is done nowadays when we have capsules, slabs etc. to keep most air away from base metal coins.

It was the first time I saw a laquered gold coin in an auction which, of course, wouldn't corrode anyway. I was looking for this piece for quite some time, so I was considering bidding.

Crazy effort today to prepare the submitted coins for grading. 

Wow, that's a lot of coins.  Do you vacuum seal them before sending them off?  Looks like big vacuum sealing bags.

Some very nice coins in this submission. And looking forward to the video since there are not only the usual suspects but also others e.g. LMU coins including an 8 Forint/20 Franc (@Kookaburracollector have you seen this) in apparently very nice condition. Also the Cuban 10 Peso might be above the usual MS62. I wish the submitters luck and success in this submission!

I feel bad for the amount I sent in for this bunch.... but HUGELY appreciate the effort you put in to getting these graded. I'll try a self submission this weekend to give you a break from some of mine ;) 

It might be cheaper in the long run, self submitting only costs $25

 Self submitting one coin to NGC London requires:

 Membership with NGC 

 A journey to London 

£28 for one modern coin in fees

A journey back to London to pick the Colin up.

 Self submitting one coin to NGC USA 

 Membership with NGC

Postage to Florida  £10 

£22 roughly in fees

 Postage back from Florida $35 £24 min (not insured)

£56 for a single coin

 Anyone can do these things and self submit however a typical handful of coins can require three or more tiers, maybe modern or gold or value for example. There would be a tier fee of $10/£12 for each.

@Numistacker i assume you get dealer discount on these fees? 

All NGC  authorized dealers get a 15% discount on most services however some services get a zero discount.

I would rate this as more of a labor of love than a for-profit activity.
