  1. Bulk Submissions

    Thank you for your question. In order to submit to the bulk program you must be an elite member with our collector society. If submitting the BU ATB coins the minimum will be 100 coins. If submitting the specimen coins please contact Scott Heller for minimum and pricing as it varies compared to the BU coins.
  2. 225th enhanced coin set from the US Mint

    Thank you for your question. Please submit the coins in their original mint casing to protect the coins. We will safely remove the coins from the case and place them into individual holders.
  3. Ancient coin certification/encapsulation question

    Thank you for your question. Our standard sized holder can accommodate a coin up to 45mm in diameter. If the coin is within this range but thicker than normal we may use a double ($5 additional fee) or triple thick holder ($10 additional fee). If the coin is over 45mm we will use an oversized holder which is a $25 fee. The oversized holder is also made in double and triple thick as well.
  4. Grading advice

    Thank you for your question. If you would like to have the coins conserved by our NCS team you can choose that option when filling out the submission form. Please note that all coins on the invoice will be routed to our NCS department. Therefore if you have coins you do not wish to conserve you will need to place those on a separate invoice. We would not suggest cleaning the coins as this may cause irreparable damage to the surface of the coins. When submitting coins you must first determine the proper grading tier for your coins. Please note that you only choose one grading tier or service per submission form. If you have a wide range of coins you may need to fill out multiple submission forms.
  5. Coin Error

    Thank you for your question. I apologize for the delayed response. The double die attributions are considered varieties and must be examined by our experts in order to properly attribute them. The link below provides a detailed list of the varieties that we recognize. Unfortunately, the photo is not sufficient to make any recommendations on if this coin may contain a variety. We would need to see this coin in hand to make a determination. https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-varieties/
  6. How to handle active corrosion

    Thank you for your question. I apologize for the delayed response. This coin could benefit from our conservation services as we would be able to stop the active corrosion. Depending on the severity of the corrosion it may receive a details grade with a notation of "corrosion." If it contains light corrosion we may be able to remove the residue and provide a numerical grade.
  7. Toned coin in mint set

    Thank you for your question. I apologize for the delayed response. I would not suggest performing any cleaning on this coin as it may cause damage. When submitting coins to NGC for grading our experts will determine if conservation is needed. We will email and provide the details of which coins need conservation. At that time you can accept or decline the conservation services. Depending on what the graders determine, conservation is necessary before grading (if coin has pvc or heavy residue) and an option for others as it may simply improve the appearance.
  8. Can this coin be conserved by NCS?

    Thank you for your question. I apologize for the delayed response. Our graders would need to see the coin in hand in order to make a proper determination on if conservation will help the coin.
  9. price on graded silver

    Thank you for your email. I apologize for the delayed response. We do not have a listing for this coin in our world price guide. Please check with www.heritageauctions.com or www.stacksbowers.com to see if they have any recent auction sales for this coin.
  10. Thank you for your question. I apologize for the delayed response. We would authenticate and grade the quality of the coin but do not provide appraisal values. This may be a mint error coin but our graders would need to see it in hand to make any determination.
  11. Certification verification

    Thank you for your question. We limit the number of searches to deter the automated and potentially malicious gathering of data.
  12. 1921 Peace dollar crossover from MS to PF

    Thank you for your email. When submitting a crossover you can request it to be cross at the same exact grade or a lower grade. As the coin is graded MS64 you can only request it to be crossed at MS64 and not PF64. If the graders determine the coin to be PF and MS they will assign the proper designation. If you feel that this coin was attributed incorrectly by PCGS please notate that on the form as well. Please see the attached link for more information. https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/1335/
  13. Thank you for your question. This coin would fit in our standard size holder as it can hold coins up to 45mm in diameter. It will be placed in a standard sized, double thick holder which is an additional $5 per coin. The double and triple thick coins will not fit in the standard display box as they have their own specialized display boxes for their designed widths. Please see the link below for more information. https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/5758/NGC-Adds-New-Display-Box-Options/
  14. Five D gold coin

    Thank you for your question. I have copied the link to our price guide below. Please note that the value of the coin will vary depending on the grade of the coin. https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/united-states/gold-half-eagles/65/
  15. Damage, strike through or ????

    Thank you for your question. Our graders would need to see the coin in hand in order to make a proper determination on if this is damaged or a mint error. We have multiple graders evaluate each coin to make a proper attribution. In order to submit coins directly to NGC you must upgrade to a paid membership with our collector society. I have copied a link to this page below. https://www.ngccoin.com/submit-coins/how-to-submit.aspx
