Play with the economics... and remember big dealers get better rates...
With Bulk Submissions, you may indicate one (1) minimum grade on your submission form. PCGS
will holder any coins that meet or exceed the requested minimum grade. No minimum MS or PR 70 submissions will be accepted. If you will accept any grade, please indicate that on the submission form. If no minimum is requested, all coins will be graded. Genuine Services (Genuine with Details and Genuine no Details) are not available on Bulk submissions. Below is the current pricing for orders with a minimum grade listed:
If 60% of the coins submitted meet or exceed the minimum grade, each holdered coin will be charged $12. The coins that do not meet your minimum grade will be returned to you unholdered with no charge.
If less than 60% of the coins submitted meet or exceed the minimum grade, each holdered coin will be charged $12 while the unholdered coins will be charged $5 each.
Based on that, let's submit a bag of 100 coins.
If you pick a minimum grade of MS67, you get 37% and pay the higher fee... 37*12+63*5 = $759 plus your $119 cost for the bag...
And you can sell them for $440 plus 63 spendable quarters for a total loss of $419.25.
If you pick a minimum grade of MS66 or MS65, you pay a lot more in slabbing costs, but don't incur the penalty $5 charge. Still it's a net loss of $365.75 or $452.75
If you luck out and score that 2nd MS68, you make money... but if it was easy, everyone would do it.
