sending coins in to be slabbed..

5 posts in this topic

let's say i have a coin that might be worth $400 if it grades MS64, and in 63 it's worth $200. now let's say the slab co. i'm sending it to has a tier for coins worth less than $300, and another for ones worth more than $300. one is $18 and the other is $30 to send them in.

 

would paying the $30 help my grade? it shouldn't, but do you think it does? are the graders oblivious to that info?

I have sent many raw coins to PCGS and NGC under the less expensive economy tier where the grade of MS66 might infer the piece had a value of $100-$200 and the grade of MS67 might infer the piece had a value of $1,800-$2,000 and I have received a majority of MS67 grades in those cases.

From what I've heard, NGC will not charge the extra money if the value is close. If the value is a major difference in the next highest grade, then they might have something to say!

I never had that experiece. I paid $109.00 for the 2006 S.A.E Anniversary set in 2006 from the U.S. Mint so theoretically each coin would cost about $36.00. I sent the Reverse proof in and it came back a PF70 nad nothing was said.
