Submitting Proof Set for Multi Coin Holder

Attractive Toned Set, Should be submitted unopened? I have a proof set that has attractive toning and would like it put in a multi coin holder. I hesitate to break it apart for fear NGC will consider the coins artificially toned. If kept in the sealed original proof set, they are obviously original and toned naturally. Can I submit the set still sealed? Thanks.

Multi-coin Holder

When submitting raw coins for encapsulation, how do I indicated a multi-coin holder is requested? (Under customer notes on form?) And is there an extra expense for the holder? Thank you for any replies.

Need Help with a coin!!!

I need somebody who knows something about Swiss 20F gold pieces. I currently have 2 1937 gold 20F coins on Ebay that are up for auction which I had expected to get about $90 each for. Somebody just emailed me to ask if I was sure of the date on the coin because they didnt mint any 20F gold in 1937. I checked the date on the coins and sure enough they were dated 1937 with a B mint mark. However, I also checked and saw that NGC hadnt authenticated any 1937 swiss 20F pieces. Furthermore, according

COINCIDENCE OR THE COIN GODS AT WORK?

GOOD THINGS COME IN PAIRS!! While looking through some of my collection, I was struck by the fact that several of my key coins were acquired in pairs.   On May 15, 2002, I found a 1901-S and 1913-S Barber Quarter in a favorite dealer's inventory. I swallowed hard several times, and purchased both. Thank God! - as I haven't seen their equals since.   On March 13, 2003, the same dealer offered me a "deal" on an uncirculated 1884-S and 1889-CC Morgan dollar. On this occasion,I swallowed

1863 Indian

might have found a MS double die reverse I bought this 1863 Indian from a antique store, it was out of an album. It looks to be at least a ms65++. also I was looking through "cherry pickers, this coin didn't have any of the symptoms for a 63 but it did have heavy DD on the right side of the shield and on the bottom of the arrows tips, continuing up the right side/outside of the wreath. Also there is a good size die crack on the obverse. What would make this a new die variety, and if so when I

Grading time

Depends on the service, but NGC follows the times on their website pretty closely. I sent in 5 coins two weeks ago (arriving Thursday of that week)on their economy plan, which called for ten business days to grade. I got an e-mail yesterday saying the coins had been shipped -- ten days on the nose. Can't speak for PCGS or any of the others...

SERVER MAINTENANCE - some functions down on Sunday morning

We will be running an archive function on our server between the hours of 12am-12 noon on Sunday. While this is happening, there will be interruption in the following functionality: 1.

All Registry items will be processed on Monday for final inclusion, but they can be entered as normal over the course of the weekend

Pending Coin Registry Entries

There is a small glitch in the Coin Registry system that is preventing us from processing pending entries as quickly as we would like. There is a large number of pending entries and we are working as quickly as we can to get them all approved.   We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

PCGS Undergrades, which is why their items bring more $

I am not a dealer, just a lowly collector who recently switched from PCGS back to NGC because I am sick of spending too much money and waiting forever to get my coins back.   One of the other primary reasons I had for switching was that I feel very strongly that PCGS undergrades as a marketing technique. If you feel that PCGS coins are "better", the reason is that you are really paying less for the next grade (or in some cases 2 grades) up.   Obviously this isn't true 100% of the time, bu

INCONSISTANCY IS A PROBLEM EVERYWHERE BUT SAME STANDARD IS KEY.

ANYONE WHO HAS SUBMITTED COINS FOR GRADING ANY NUMBER OF TIMES WILL HAVE A STORY OF COINS CROSSING AND NOT CROSSING. I'VE HAD ABOUT 50% SUCCESS CROSSING FROM ICG TO NGC BUT THAT WAS AFTER PERSONALLY FILTERING WHAT I WAS GOING TO SUBMIT AND WHAT WOULD BE A WASTE OF MONEY DOING SO. I'VE EVEN HAD ONE CASE OF AN ICG COIN CROSSING HIGHER AT NGC THAN ITS GRADE IN THE ICG HOLDER IT WAS SUBMITTED IN. IT IS THE COIN THAT IS BEING SUBMITTED NOT THE HOLDER. IT SHOULDN'T MATTER WHAT HOLDER IT IS IN OR WHO I

If ICG's as good as the ICG proponents proclaim

I really don't think i will be posting on this subject again. We have heard several suspect posts and a few legitimate posts on why ICG should be allowed in an NGC registry. I will try not mudslinging because i would prefer to keep the posts i make in a gentlemanly manner. The simple FACT's are that a small group of legitimate registry poster's want ICG to be included and some less than legitimate poster's also do. Whatever all of these ICG proponent's motive's are, and I am beginning to

Grading Companies

I submitted l2 MS Silver Eagles from ICG to PCGS for Crossover Grading. About 2 yrs. ago I submitted 12 Silver American Eagles, MS-69 from ICG to PCGS for Crossover Grading, and all 12 Crossed Over. Of the 3 Grading companies, I believe that ICG has by far less conflict of interest,than PCGS or NGC, as none of the personnel employed by them,are permitted to deal in Coins. No one else can say that, when some of the largest coin dealers in the Country are connected to NGC or PCGS. Even in Gradin

NGC, PCGS, and ICG

I really don't care. In my opinion, I feel that everyone else is making the issue of including other grading companies in the registry too big of a deal. I don't see why we can't just keep it the way it is. NGC and PCGS have both had excellent reviews, showing the consistency of their grades. Several other grading companies, such as ICG, ANACS, and SEGS, have been in the past known for providing dishonest grades, and often times overgraded coins. If such companies are included, what the regi

ICG...YOU'RE KIDDING, RIGHT?

I DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN! Sure, allowing ICG coins into the registry would make a more inclusive registry. But what exactly are we including? They do not grade consistently or accurately. I have handled 3 accurately graded ICG slabs. ICG grades 1-3 points above the true grade on a regular basis, and watch closely for problem coins...graffiti, rim damage, etc., because they aren't very good at spotting such things. There is a reason, regardless of grey sheet charts, why ICG slabs sell fo

Collectors Society should add ICG Coins

I am a collector of 41 years experience. 1st. More collectors would register their coins and compette in their attempt to improve their sets. 2..By registering their coins they have a theft detterent, harder for theives to sell their coins. 3..More coins will have a MS-70 & PF-70 grade. 4..Prices are way to high on PCGS coins. Exp. on a coin with a POP. of 2 only I have seen a bid in a auction of $9,000.00. 5.. PCGS on their POP. report shows in MODERN COMMERATIVES COMPLETTE 11 coins th

I was shocked at johannsenn's journal comments

For someone who has had such a vast experience at crossing over slabs that this was his first visit to NGC's website. I am not trying to pick a fight at all but although his composition was a 70 his content was more like a 58. If it was only marketing i sincerely doubt ICG would even be in the "triangle" he referred to. SEGS has a much nicer looking slab and i believe it to have more eye appeal and function than any other i have seen. Great to be an american and a right to an opinion.

NGC-PCGS-ICG Certifications

Come on out of the Box! This is the first time I have spent time reviewing the NGC website taking note of all services offered to the collector. I must congratulate you on a "JOB WELL DONE"! However, I must rebut the comments from "SIGFRIED89" minimizing the efforts and professionalism of ICG and their abilities to properly certify coins. I have used all three services and frequently cracked graded coins out of holders to resubmit them to a different service hoping for a higher designation, i.

grey sheet as a reference anyway

has become overrated in my opinion Someone referenced the grey sheet earlier as a reference for top grading companies. If grey sheet reccomendations are as accurate as their recommended bid ask's are relative to current real world pricing then "greysheet" could be included in horseshoes and hangernade sayings right next to atomic bombs.
