    Can we get a pic of this coin and how do you know it's worth over $10,000?? Have you tried calling PCGS?

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    To start I will say the traditional, give them a call or email (or submit at a pcgs attended show an ask). :)

    Next I have not done an error so I have no direct experience with it. The following is just looking at the form and thinking what I might do (if I didn't ask).
    Note: Below is more than OP asked. I believe it goes to the next level or Walkthrough at $150.

    Picture of the form below for reference. An older form did not have the Economy Error level ($300 and $35) but just the Error level ($10K and $70).
    Two options, if the value is close enough to the $10,000., then could just use that Error level. As the value goes higher one might not feel as comfortable with it. If pcgs has a problem with the value they will adjust the fee but might still be insured at $10K on return shipping.

    Other choice, I think it actually goes to the next level which is the Walkthrough ($100k and $150). In section 7 under the coin number column I would add the coin number (might be an E1234 type). If not known, then could just put ERROR in that spot. Also in section 7 under Description do something similar but add a brief description (ERROR wrong planchet...). Also could add this to section 6 under the Other line (ERROR wrong planchet...). I don't know if the online form will allow both the Walkthrough and Other but a paper one does.

    That's the thought but I would go with the calling or email as my first choice.

    just call it $10K, they will correct you if they do not like it

    or try customer service to see what they say

    Like others, I suggest that you contact CS to confirm.

    That said, generally speaking, the "service level" is dictated by the "declared value".

    Source: https://www.pcgs.com/submissionguide

    I interpret this to mean that if the "declared value" is between $10K and $100K, you are a "walkthrough" (i.e., "max. coin value" = $100K; "grading fee" = $150).
