Update: Does anyone know how long does an invoice number or submission form lasts? Does it expire if you don't send in your coins after a certain amount of time? I finished a submission form back in April and I have yet to send in my coin for grading at NGC. Reason being is I can't find the darn water activate paper tape required when sending in items via Registered Mail. Our darn post offices and office supply stores don't have it and I literally searched for months. I am planning to just send it in as the normal priority mail. Anyone?

I'm a bit confused - does Amazon not sell items in Hawaii?

I use regular Priority mail (insured) when I ship coins to PCGS and have never had an issue. That is also how they ship the coins back to me.

I went to almost every office supply store on the island and most didn't even know what I was talking about..I went to multiple post offices asking if they could package it for me with that special tape but they don't carry it LOL..within a couple months time I'd venture out into the community and online searching for this tape and the closest I got was a HUGE roll that cost a couple hundreds of dollars #128542;...I still don't know what it's called exactly but it is required to send Registered mail because of its tamper proof design and made out of paper so it can absorb the ink they will stamp or sign it with. I know I am kinda going off the topic of this post but I figured this information can help someone in the future. But I think I'll take that advice and just mail it via USPS priority mail. Thank you!

But back to my question about submission forms and if it does actually expire? Anyone?

Amazon is a good source for the tape - it's referred to as reinforced paper tape. FWIW, I picked mine up at a local pack-n-ship store vs. a general office supply store.

The NGC Submission Forms do not expire, per se, but they can become obsolete due to fee changes, service tier changes, etc. I would check the latest forms for such updates, if you don't see any changes I would not worry about using your previously completed form(s).

Regarding mailing options, I like the extra level of service associated with Registered Mail. Priority mail doesn't receive the same level of attention, but, as others have indicated, generally delivers good results.

Thanks for the update! Unfortunately, it's not too big of a surprise. As noted above, the surfaces didn't look quite right.

As one of the keys to the classic series, however, it still has value but it's up to you to decide if you want a cleaned/Details coin in your collection.

Did I make an amateur mistake by going with conservation? According to them there was some kind of residue that made the surface appearance grainy. But I had no idea that it would alter the surface look so dramatically. I'm afraid it may have lost its unique look and possibly lowered its value #128542;

I can't say whether the cost of the conservation was worth it in terms of the final price if/when you sell it. However, future prospective buyers are not searching for a coin with a "unique" look, especially if that uniqueness is actually some kind of residue.
Personally, if my only choices were between an AU coin that looked off, had environmental damage, and was cleaned vs. a straightforward AU-cleaned coin that doesn't look off, I would choose the latter.

So, when you submit a coin for conservation, you are automatically agreeing to have it graded?

Well first I had been informed via e mail that my coin was eligible for NGC conservation due to residue and when arrived at NGC conservation a team of experts would determine whether the coin would benefit from being cleaned or if there would be risk of damaging it. After I approved the cleaning through a simple reply to the email saying "yes" I pretty much left the outcome in the hands of the Conservation experts. Ultimately they removed the residue and as a result my coin could only receive at the most an AU DETAILS rating because they had cleaned it. After it was cleaned I believe it automatically goes back to NGC for grading which would automatically result in an AU xxxx - CLEANED grade. Correct me if I'm wrong on this

Well, that seems rather self-serving. Does anyone know whether a NGC-conserved coin always receives a details grade?
