I sent in a submission to ANACS and it was delivered on the 11th of April and I was billed by ANACS on the 26th of April and I haven't heard anything from ANACS since. I sent them a potentially really obscure Japanese coin, so I am aware that it might take a while but when should I consider contacting them about this submission? Below is the coin that I sent in.

I would contact them now. It's been almost 6 weeks since they received it.

I assume you paid $39 (+S&H) for grading this coin? Good luck!

My last PMG submission took 5 1/2 months.

The grading industry is being (has been) swamped. PCGS is still looking to hire graders. Anyone interested?

https://www.PCGS.com/job/grader

" PCGS is looking for experienced, highly skilled graders. We need both U.S. and World graders.

We need both graders who want to work in California at PCGS and/or graders who would enjoy traveling to shows to grade coins in the United States and/or Asia and Europe. If you love coins, it's an exciting opportunity for you and one of the plum jobs in the coin industry."

Is that a Chinese cash coin?

I'm sure ANACS sent you a form indicating they received your coin with some sort of job number on it.
Go to the ANACS site, look up that number and see what info you get.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Status update: So, I was able to view my current order status on the ANACS website and it just says that it was expected to ship on May 23 and is currently in the "Consultant" category/stage. It seems that ANACS is working on it, so I am just going to let this one ride for a while longer.

the consultant stage may be their form of quality assurance checks to verify the grade given. sometimes it takes a while - especially with obscure coins.

Status update: Finally decided to contact anacs today and they are still working on it, which I am fine with since it is a potentially very obscure item and anacs customer service reflected that sentiment by saying "Due to the nature of the coin in question we cannot guarantee a turn-around time.".
