    Probably pushing 2 years.

    I got two incomplete/incorrect orders back, so maybe they are cutting corners to achieve expediency? And yeah, I notified CS. They are not too quick about answers/solutions.

    I was very happy with fast and efficient service on some economy orders, plus they did not charge extra for one coin that graded higher than expected putting it at double their maximum value on economy. I don't know if there is any good reason to go regular service on coins that economy should take care of now.

    Does anyone know how accurate these estimates are? At one point, some posters were reporting times that approached double or better of the estimate listed at the time.

    The PCGS Minions believe.

    When I submitted at Long Beach, I asked what the timeline looked like. (I knew at the time that the website was reporting 23 days on Economy.)

    "Right now, it's running about 15 or 18 days!"

    That's quick. I'll bet it doubles in January.

    Maybe we'll all be lucky and PCGS will have hired (an) additional grader(s) to prevent a build up like happened earlier this year/last year.

    Is this consider fast or slow? I think it is pretty slow, 16 days still consider express?. I just joined PCGS and sent them more than 100 coins to grade or cross, spent almost about 4K on fee,shipping and membership.

    US coins are at the normal turnaround times now. It has been a long time since that happened. You are looking at World coins.

    I've never found estimated turn-around times for any of the services to be particularly accurate. Especially if I've made a submission !
    I quit paying any attention to them many years ago. I just send in coins and figure that I will get them back sometime.
