      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

  1. Thank you for your question. Please understand that NGC has multiple graders evaluate each coin in order to provide the most consistent and accurate grade possible. We stand by the grade of each coin per our guarantee (see link below) and have been in business for 30 years. Coins are graded based off the quality of the coin and not off what the market requests. https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-grading/ngc-guarantee/
  2. Thank you for your question. Unfortunately if the coin holder does not specify that the coin came from the (P) Philadelphia Mint we are not able to attribute this afterwards. The original submitter would have needed to submit the coins in the original mint sealed box with the proper straps and numerical code on the box to qualify.
  3. Thank you for your question. Our NCS experts would need to evaluate the coin to determine if conservation would benefit the coin. As for the attribution, we would need the coin to be submitted with the documents from the salvage company in order to identify as a shipwreck coin.
  4. Thank you for your question. Please fill out a second invoice and write page 1 on the first page and page 2 on the second. Also cross out the invoice number on page two and write the first invoice number on the second page so that they match. This will help our team to determine that this is a multi page invoice. Thank you
  5. Thank you for your question. We ask that you put the fair market value of the coin in its current condition on the submission form. If we find that the value is under declared via recent auction sales we will simply upgrade to the proper grading tier and charge the appropriate fees. Please understand that we will charge the proper fees but we do not change your declared value on the submission form which will be the insurance coverage amount as well.
  6. Thank you for your question. We do grade this type of coin. If our graders feel that there is a film or residue on the surface of the coin they will suggest that it goes through our conservation service before grading.
  7. Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not buy, sell or appraise the value of coins. I would suggest searching recent auction site values for a comparison.
  8. Thank you for your question. We attribute the teardrop as a variety. In order to have the variety attributed you must send the coin in for grading as well as choose the variety plus check box in the services section which is an additional $15 fee per coin. I have copied the link to the variety below. https://www.ngccoin.com/coin-varieties/standing-liberty-quarters-1916-1930/1926-s-teardrop-25c-vp-001-5957/
  9. Thank you for your question. We have multiple graders look at each coin to reach a consensus on the grade. We have experts for US Foreign vintage and modern coins (1955-present) and well as foreign. Our ancient coin division is separate from our US and world coin division and has its own experts. Thank you
  10. Unfortunately the grades for the submission will not be available until the order is shipped out of our system to you. The non-ncs coins are being held while the others are conserved. They will be paired back up when completed and shipped out to you. Once they are shipped you will receive an automated email informing you of the shipment and tracking number. At that time you can log into your account on www.ngccoin.com and access the grades. Thank you

  12. Thank you for your question. Our graders would need to see the coin in hand in order to determine if the coin qualifies for a mint error. The cost to submit the coin may vary based on the declared value of the coin. It may qualify for the modern (1955-present), Economy, or Early bird tiers. Please note that the mint error evaluation is an additional $15 per coin. The mint error will be attributed if the experts deem it to be significant enough to meet our criteria. https://www.ngccoin.com/submit/services-fees/ In order to submit coins to us you would need to be a paid member of our collector society or you could submit them through an NGC authorized dealer in your area. https://www.ngccoin.com/submit-coins/how-to-submit.aspx https://www.ngccoin.com/services/dealer-listing.aspx
  13. Thank you for your question. I have copied the link to our Russian USSR census page. If you would like to search for a specific coin in the price guide please search the world price guide under the Russia section and then select the denomination that you are looking for. https://www.ngccoin.com/census/world/russia/russia-soviet-1921-1991/
  14. Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we would not be able to provide an opinion via images as it may be difficult to see. I would suggest using a desktop lamp (remove other light sources from the room) and rotate the coin under the lamp. You will be looking for hairlines on the coin which are a tell tale sign of improper cleaning. Given the long history of these coins it is common to find some that have been cleaned at some point of their existence.
  15. Thank you for your question. We capture the images while the coin is in the NGC holder.
