Question About Declared Value, when submitting coins for grading
Thanks in advance for advice - the customer service phone queue earlier had 63 people and a 90 min wait, and now they're closed for the day....anyway -
I'm trying to use vouchers, that are good for standard grading, up to $2500. Going by auction records, CDN, my price paid, and even the Price Guide, I should be within that for all of the coins. However, if several are graded favorably, (and I'm talking split grades, like 58 vs-55, etc) the price guide is over $2500.
I'm assuming my declared value has zero influence in the grading room, as it should....
But, assuming I get lucky on one or two, does PCGS just charge me a surcharge for grading coins with a value >$2500?
Also does the insurance charge change?
How do you guys estimate Declared Value on raw coins, and what are your experiences with this?
