Does PCGS prioritize grading based on what the coins are? Here's an example:

The coins submitted a month later are already being encapsulated. The second submission is a bunch of recently released innovation proof dollars, whereas the other one is a bunch of older Roosevelt Dimes and Lincoln Cents. The dollars are also submitted for First Strike, maybe that provides for some expediency?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the new first strike stuff got pulled up.

    Their public comments over the past couple years indicates that they value the business that comes from new releases and getting market share in that space is key to long term success. Expediency is important in that segment of the market. They are trying to serve people that want new stuff.

    It is more the luck of the draw than anything else. It also could be the first order was already late so what if it is a little later. The second order could be graded on time so do it, so it is delivered on time.
