NGC Turnaround time

With all the comments on turn around time, here is my story Sent 5 coins for economy on 7/21, marked by NGC as received on 7/24, went right to quality control on 8/8 and was finalized and shipped on 8/11. That is 15 working days from being received to shipped. That is great service considering their posted time. 2 of 5 crossed, not great percentage since I thought another for sure would cross. This is the ANACS F12 1897-S that crossed... 1897-S 50c

Oh, I can hear the screams of those who had a bunch of them to sell and waited.... I guess it is the same with the quarters.1839 25c.j

Fact About Images and Descriptions

Is anyone aware that images and descriptions count toward your postion in the registry? I was puzzled by why a person with the same score as I had in the 1992 proof category was rated one position highr than I was. After an email to NGC, I got a reply taht stated that if there is a tie in score, the person with more images and descriptions will be rated higher. If both have the same images and descriptions, than the one that was at the position first gets the position. So images and descrip

The start of my collecting bug...

I am always reading how those shows on the Home Shopping channels are a rip-off and that they are no good for the hobby. I hate to say it, but if it wasn?t for that channel, I probably wouldn?t be hooked on the hobby today.
