    ngc vs pcgs

    PCGS slabbed coins tend to sell at a slightly higher premium than NGC, but I don't personally subscribe to that market determined value. I have both PCGS graded coins and NGC, but primarily NGC. These are the top two grading companies.

    APOLLO 11 ANNIVERSARY COINS

    It’s the updated status of my invoice (you can track the same).
  3. I’d also take care not to touch the surfaces with your fingers (sides only).
  4. I would not personally ever buy raw gold (again). There are some who can, but not me. I did once and it was returned ‘improperly cleaned’. You are much better off to buy graded to know what you’re really getting as well as a basis to determine a fair price.

    NGC Submission Progress

    It depends on how busy they are. They have been hit with the Apollo 11 coins and it will likely take several days. I know the same has been happening with PCGS.
  6. I have no idea based on the specific parameters you set, but excluding the key coins, as a reference point, you can buy a circulated 1909-2018 set for under $300.

    APOLLO 11 ANNIVERSARY COINS

    For some reason I am interested to keep up on the sales figures. Particularly while my coin is still being graded. The Feb 10 report shows 916 additional gold coins (proof and unc) sold between Feb 3 and Feb 10 (total of 32,849 sold). I'm so curious if these products will sell out? I suspect the back order has slowed interest some.

    1969S Lincoln penny

    I suspect I know the question, and while 50 years old, it's worth 1 cent. A double die or some other kind of unique error would make it more valuable.

    Mine is in the system and scheduled for grading. I can only imagine the deluge they and PCGS have had with these coins.

    No! I sent my gold proof for grading. I agree those buying graded will pay a hefty premium, at least for quite a while. I have not seen sales figures since the first day sales report. Half the gold was sold that first day.

    APOLLO 11 ANNIVERSARY COINS

    The markup games have begun....there are a few Ebay sellers advertising at cost but the highest markup I found is a First Day of Issue PF70 $5 gold (presale) of $995 OBO. As we know the 'First Day of Issue' label is reserved only for those making a bulk submission for grading, even though 15K+ people bought the same coin at the same time (on the first day). Wow...
  13. Considering the feedback volume for this seller, I would have no problem buying from them. Maybe the seller needs to cash out some inventory, even if at a small loss, for other priorities.

    Received yesterday and shipped to NGC today. Looked great under magnification, fingers crossed for PF70.
