  1. If you are not comfortable cracking the coin out you can send it for the crossover service. This allows you to retain the PCGS holder if it does not meet the crossover criteria. Please note that you can request it to be crossed at the same grade or lower but you cannot request a higher grade. If the coin is deemed to be an MS64 we will automatically place it into our holder. Please see the details below

  10. Hello, Please click on the link below regarding details grading. If corrosion is present, the coin will receive a details grade.
  11. Thank you for your post. NCS Conservation is recommended when a coin has active contaminants such as PVC which prevents NGC from being able to grade the coin or residue which can detract from the quality of grade. The submitter can request for coins to go through NCS by selecting the applicable option on the submission form. Please note that this applies to all coins on the invoice. Otherwise, if the NGC experts determine that a coin would benefit from NCS, our team will email the submitter for approval to perform the services. The submitter will have a 24 hour window to approve the services, otherwise it will be declined. The NCS fees will not be charged if the services are not performed. Please see the link below for more information regarding NCS Conservation.

  19. @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.
