I reported in an earlier Journal that I had submitted a coin to NGC under thier World Express Grading Tier.
As I stated in my previous Journal entry I am quite eager to have this coin graded and imaged so that I can add it to my Registry Sets.
I have been monitoring this submission since I put it in the mail and am very impressed with the speed that it is being processed by NGC.
According to my USPS PROOF OF DELIVERY NGC signed for my package on 2/7/2012 at 11:24 AM. NGC claims a 48 hour Turn Around Time for World Express service so lets start the clock running at that time.
By 3:30 PM on 2/7/2012 my invoice was listed on the NGC web site as RECIEVED. When I check the NGC web site before I went to bed on 2/7/2012 the coins on my invoice were loged in and listed as SCHEDULED FOR GRADING. By the afternoon of 2/8/2012 my coins were listed as in GRADING/QUALITY CONTROL. I phoned NGC the afternoon of 2/9/2012 to check on the status of my submission and they informed me that my coins had completed Quality Control and were in the imaging department for the High Resolution (300 DPI) imaging that I had requested and should be in the mail to me the morning of 2/10/2012. Since the High Resolution imaging adds an additional day to any grading tier NGC is right on time for the 48 hour turn around time they advertise for the World Express Grading Tier.
Yes folks 48 hours really does mean 48 hours!
