PCGS Grading Process Question
Just curious what folks thoughts on which of the various steps in the grading process typically take the longest? Per the graphic in my order details there is Order Processing and Specification, Authentication and Grading, Grade Finalization and Encapsulation, Holder check and verification and finally Outbound Packaging and Shipping.
I would think Grading would take the longest as it is a specialized detailed focused skill and you can't ramp up as volume increases very fast and then maybe Outbound Packaging and Shipping taking the least amount of time as it seems straight forward, So far with my current submission it has spent the most time in the Grade Finalization and Encapsulation.
As mentioned, just curious really.
