Reholdering Using Vouchers

I am considering resubmitting some previously graded PCGS coins to be reholdered into Gold Shield holders this December at the Las Vegas show. I currently have eight (8) vouchers and with the quarterly special I could have ten (10) coins graded as Gold Shield. Since reholdering a previously PCGS graded coin is $25 and having a raw coin graded using the same Gold Shield service is $40, a difference of $15 per coin, would there be a remaining $150 using the vouchers and the quarterly special to have an additional six (6) coins reholdered at the $25 service cost?

So I am figuring eight (8) vouchers at $40/ea = $320 in fees
Add the Quarterly Special of two (2) additional gradings per four (4) coins at $40 = $80
This gives a total of $400 in voucher and quarterly special grading fees.

Reholdering as Gold Shield is $25 per coin
$400 in vouchers/specials would allow sixteen (16) coins to be reholdered at the $25 service cost.

Is this possible or would PCGS just reholder 10 coins using the eight vouchers and the quarterly special?
