Great Collection question

Has anyone here ever utilized GC's attribution service? I sent some holdered half cents in early December to be attributed. I already attributed them, but thought they might sell better if attibuted by someone with authority. lol Just wondering how long that takes. I've emailed all and received a note saying a named person would contact me shortly, well not yet. I sent a 1795 half cent that was attributed on the holder with the same group of raw and holdered half cents and it sold well in early January.
I elected to send the raw to ANACS as they attribute the coin with the grading process. Uhoh.
I have no problem with the time frame, only I can find no way to have a clue as to this process time frame and would merely like to have an idea of the steps involved. If anyone has ever used this service, I would appreciate your input.
Please don't ask if I asked Ian, as I am sure he was extremely busy through Christmas and the New Year.
Thanks,
Jim

    I am not familiar with this service. Does it cost a lot? Couldn't seem to find the info on their site James

    I would pick up the phone and call ,,, anytime I needed to ask a question, I spoke with someone and they got back to me with answers. I never had them attribute any pieces but on lots I sent to be auctioned, I had had pick a few out to send to CAC and they were sticker ... I think it was a standard cycle as I do not think GC has an "easy-pass" lane to use.

    It's on their submission form when I filled it out, if I remember correctly it was $10@.

    I don't see it on the submission form. however they did tell me they just changed their forms so maybe it was on the older version.

    Are you referring to VSS attribution?
