NGC Turnaround time

Getting Faster Yes I too have noticed that my last 2 submissions currently at NGC have gone through alot quicker than previous orders. which makes me extreemely happy. Especially since I have 2 orders at PCGS that have been there for 2 months now and everytime I call all I get is arrogance and the statement next time use the regular service for $30.00 per coin for 15 day turnaround. Usually I reply why would I do that when NGC can do it for 1/2 the price in 12 to 15 days. I don't think

Food for thought!

Richard told me (he's my local, Honest, coin dealer at "The Copper Coin Shop here in Marquette, MI,) that particulally with Morgans today..... I need to be careful what I'm buying. He says a lot of the old timers who collected coins years ago wouldn't think twice about shining up their coins. He says they'd buff them up and make'em shine so their collections looked real nice...today alot of those coins are falling into the hands of the next generation or the generation after that and being liq

Say, while I've got your ear....

I'm working on a personal set of Military Coins. So far I...... Have the following 35 coins as proposed pieces for this set: Are there others? any ideas?? Thanks for listening....I'm in a talkative mood this morning. Battle of Antietam 1937 silver half dollar Black Revolutionary War Patriots 1998 S silver dollar Black Revolutionary War Patriots Proof 1998 S silver dollar Civil War Battlefield Preservation 1995 P clad half dollar Civil War Battlefield Preservation Proof 1995 S silve

More military coins...

what about teh bicentennial quarter?? your list is somewhat difficult to read, in that you sometimes mention the proof and ms versions of the mods, but not always, so i will assume that you meant to list both. first, the 1976 quarter has a drummer boy on the back, which would seem to fit your plan. the 1982 washington half has gw in his army regalia likewise, the lafayette dollar. all teh texas commems (the reverse has the alamo on it) lexington (i don't remember if you listed it)

WOW! Talk about FAST turnaround

That has got to be a record for NGC!! I sent my coins in with an early bird tier and they were received on the 17th and today the 24th they have been finalized/imaged/shipped that is only 7 calander days no where near the 24 work days they are advertising for turn around for early bird service so I have to say I am very pleased and just wanted to shar my experience with all of you because I always see how long it took but never see anyone post if they got their order done faster than expected

re: turn around

i to love the fact that ngc works hard to get the coins back to me in a timely matter.on my first send in, 2 gsa cc morgans, came back within 8 days of sending. i use overnight so that there is less tym for usps or others to have in transit. but the fact that they came back so fast is heart warming to me. they do a gr8 job and do it fast. i am sending in my next 8 coins in on the first of the month. thanks ngc!!!!!!!!!

Designations

Have I gone completely crazy or just not remebering correctly? With most coins, the Proof coins are designated either Cameo or Ultra Cameo. But with the copper coins, the Lincolns specifically in this case, the coins have the added terms of Brown (BN), Red-Brown (RB) or Red (RD) attributed to them. I opened my Proof sets of Lincoln's just a few minutes ago to find that only the Techinical MS Grade was shown. Have I lost it or what? Just a week ago, the entire grade was shown in the list,

MY 4 Cents Worth

(California prices) My impression of NGC has GREATLY increased over the past few months. I guess my first couple "body bags" taught me quite a bit, and I was disappointed at the "missed" imperfections. We live, we learn...My most recent submition of 12 coins resulted in 0 body bags, and a brand spanking new MS 67 1976-D Bicentennial 50C. What REAALLLLY impressed me though was the fact that I had requested my modern nickels be placed in a set, if they graded equally, in hindsight, I never

Re: 69's or 70's..hmmm?

What is up with the US Mint? The Mint must not be doing it's job producing so many MS69 Modern coins. They need to get with the program and start changing the dies more often. I like Jacksons logic on what will make you more $ in the long run. If it wasn't for the registry sets, why would collectors pay so much for 70 Top Pop. coins anyway? I am with you Jackson all the way. I say perfection is in the eye of the beholder. Rainbow to

MODERN PROOF? THEY'RE ALL THE SAME.

As the umpire said, "some are balls and some are strikes, but thet're nothin' till I call them." Why send them in for grading if they are all the same? Right. That?s what NGC and PCGS said. The reason dealers send modern proofs to be graded by the thousands is because NGC and PCGS will grade only a small percent 70. These are the ones that sell for big money. Are these 70?s nicer than the common 69?s? Of course not. If NGC and PCGS gave an honest grade the vast majority would be 70. Bu

Day is Done.....Gone the Sun....Three More Morgans bite the dust

They didn't have a chance. I could feel it the moment I laid eyes on these beauties at the local..... coin shop. One at a time he removed them from the box...the first was bright, filling the shop with dancing circular spot of sunlight as I turned the 1881cc Morgan over in my hand, wow! what a gem I though. Then he said look at this...and handed me the 1904 S Silver Dollar...but for the ever so slight toning, it looked like it had just arrived from the mint. I mean it look beautiful!!! Richard

RE: Day is Done

Umm.... That is way I only buy slabed coins. Some dealers would have told you that the coin was not clean when you bought it, so you must have done it. So, you are lucky that Rich is an honest dealer, and is going to give you your money back.
