  1. @Beginner 76 here is the link to the fancy numbers that PMG will recognize. Unfortunately, none of the ones in this thread will qualify.
  2. @Hinkle We reported this issue to our IT Department. We believe that the issue is with the company that hosts our chatboards and that it is not an attempted hack. We hope to have this resolved soon. Thank you

  4. @Paulezy The NGC bulk prescreen program is available to Elite Members and Dealer and typically consists of 100 or more of the same type of coin (Silver Eagles, Morgans, Peace Dollars, Lincoln Cents, etc). These members will chose the minimum acceptable grade and submit the coins for evaluation. NGC will only encapsulate the coins that meet the grading criteria and the others will be returned raw. The raw coins will not be charged a fee unless more than 35% of the coins do not meet the criteria. The graded coins will be charged a fee based on the numerical grade assigned and these fees are listed in the member portal along with the min grade requirements (for common coins). *This is called the "Prescreen" service as the submitter is asked to evaluate their coins and send the best possible ones that have a chance at meeting their criteria. This service is very beneficial for the submitter and can keep costs down significantly especially for those coins that may have been over-graded during their prescreen evaluation. For your set of coins, I would follow the suggestions of our seasoned veterans and bring them to a few local coin shops (link below) or the Long Beach Show which NGC attends.
