Fastest pcgs submission ever?

PppPpp Posts: 462 ✭✭✭✭

Hats off to pcgs 👏
Great job

Pcgs received my modern bulk submission of 26 coins (5 different types) on October 26th and I was just notified my grades are in. Three days that’s all it took for my coins to go through the grading process.

18 of the 26 coins graded pf69 or higher.

Has anyone ever have such a quick turnaround?

    What?? That's insane, good for you!

    I got the grades from my February submission just a few days ago :D

    I just mailed an economy order of 6 with attribution on Wednesday. I should have looked first to see what the turn around times were FIRST. It's at 95 business days for economy with Baltimore and FUN and several big holidays during that time period. Guess I wont be seeing them back till April, if I am lucky.

    As I understand it the bulks are done by a different part/group than non bulk. Perhaps bulk submissions have caught up.

    Wow... That is the fastest turnaround I have heard of.... at least in the last couple of years. Cheers, RickO

    It was a bulk submission and bulk is pretty much dead this time of year. Thats why the quarterly special on bulk coins. Try it in January and see how long it takes.

    It takes a week just to get notification that your registered package arrived.

    But you basically needed all of your coins to grade 70 just to break even. I guess knowing you’re gonna take a loss in 3 days vs 3 months is a positive?

    I remember Stephanie in bulk many moons ago. Go to person for everything and superb on non-bulk as well. Keep wondering if Stephanie Sabin ever spent time there years ago. Hmmm

    Coinscratch: it took only two days to get the submission from received to grading therefore total time from day of receipt at pcgs was less than seven days.

    I included four 1986 ASE in this submission and they all graded pf69.
    The remaining modern Pennie’s and nickels my total cost ranged from $23- graded to $11- not graded.

    1madman: yup, your right I only got two 70s and the rest, except the ASEs, are money losers based on greysheet but breakeven to positive based on pcgs price guide.
    Regardless, I had fun doing this. However, I wish I would have gotten a few more 70s. 🙂
