I don't want to hijack this thread but I'm thinking of getting some coins graded as well. Reading PCGS I see when you join the Platinum for instance , you get so many submissions free. Are there any other fees attached? Looking at the site it was a little confusing. Thanks


Yes shipping and return shipping is not included nor is anything beyond the standard tier, plus more $ for any speed service, variety, oversized, first strike, mint errors, etc. and some coins (generally high end/cost coins may not be suitable for the free grading certificates, some won't even fit in the category they offer, I believe you need a maximum value of $3000.00 any more you will need to use a higher priced service tier.

You must submit all 8 coins at the same time, they also must be similar in type, all us or all world.

Here is the exact wording copied from their website for the Platinum Package;

I am wanting to submit a 1922 no lincoln. Do you think they'll hit me for a fee on that one (mint error?) Even though it's from a clogged or damaged die if I remember correctly.

briank - if you want it slabbed to say the mint error and what it is - then both PCGS/NGC will charge you for it. If the coin was not really a mint error - but rather how they all were... then I don't think you get charged anything for the designation.
