My experience with PCGS crossovers has been very different than the earlier posts on this topic. Over the past few years I have submitted many PCGS graded U.S. Philippine Proof coins to NGC for crossover and all but one have crossed at the PCGS grade or higher.
NGC treats U.S. Philippine coins in a somewhat schizophrenic manner in that are considered U.S. Coins in the NGC Registry and the NGC Population Reports but are graded by the NGC World Coin Grading Staff.
I am not sure why my experience is so different than the other reports. Perhaps the PCGS and NGC standards are more in line on U.S. Philippines coins than they are for World Coins.
I know that many collectors and dealers consider PCGS to have a somewhat higher grading standard for U.S. Philippine coins than NGC. Personally I feel that the PCGS and NGC grading standards, at least for U.S. Philippine coins, are at the same level. That would seem to bear out my experience that PCGS coins that are solid for their grade have no problem in crossing over to NGC.
The attached picture is a 1908 Twenty Centavos, NGC PF64 that was originally in a PCGS PR63 holder. The coin crossed over as NGC PF63. It was then submitted to NGC for regarding at which time the grade was upgraded to NGC PF64.
