VarietyPlus Fee Increase

Posted on 8/1/2003

One of the valued features that sets NGC apart from its competition is our highly accurate variety attribution service. Introduced in 1997, VarietyPlus has undergone no price increases since that time. But the growing popularity of this service is requiring more handling at our end, so a small increase in fee is inevitable.

Effective September 1, 2003 the fee for receiving a variety attribution is being raised from $5 to $7. This applies to coins submitted raw to NGC and to all Crossover submissions. For coins already certified by NGC, variety attributions may be added under our Designation Review service. The fee for this service remains unchanged at $10, which includes the cost of reholdering your coin.

NGC does not attribute all varieties, but our VarietyPlus service does include a broad range of widely recognized variety reference books. For a complete explanation of NGC’s VarietyPlus program, as well as a listing of covered varieties, please see our online publication A Guide to Understanding and Using NGC’s VarietyPlus Service.
