$300 to Reholder a Gold Shield Coin?

According to the price list it costs $300 to reholder a gold shield coin. Additionally, this verbiage is found on the price list:

Coins requiring Gold Shield: I: Non-U.S. coins submitted under any service level other than Modern. 2. Reholders valued above $3,000.

Does that mean that to reholder any world coin prior to 1965 (the cut-off for “Modern” coins) it will cost $300?

    That doesn’t clear anything up. Does anybody else have some thoughts before I contact customer service?

    No. It does not cost $300 to reholder a coin, even gold shield.
    The prices of $12 and 17 should be accurate. Check with customer service of you have something extremely valuable.

  • So how is one meant to interpret this:

    I think I did finally figure it out. That chart should be re-made so it reads as follows:

    Reholder (Regular or Gold Shield, Value <= $3,000): $12
    Reholder (Value <= $100,000): $17
    Reholder (Value > $100,000): $300

    A very confusing chart. Looks like $300 to me also.

    That makes sense @jackrabb1t. PCGS should clarify this, @PCGSCSManager.

    Edit to add: Read the back of a recent submission form and that is even more confusing. :|

    @jackrabb1t and @Hemispherical

    U.S. coins and World Modern (1965 to date) coins valued up to $3,000 = $12/coin for Reholder, Gold Shield can but is not required to be added for an additional $5/coin

    World non-Modern and/or any coin valued from $3,001 to $100,000 = $17/coin, $12 Reholder + $5 Gold Shield (Gold Shield is required)

    Any coin valued at $100,001 or higher = $300/coin, includes Gold Shield
