New Services for 2014 & Important Info about Coin Flips
December 11, 2013
Dear PCGS Collectors Club Member,
Thank you for contributing to our success over the past year! This has been an exciting year for PCGS with major growth initiatives both domestically and overseas. With your support we will continue to expand and improve our services to you worldwide.
First of all, there will be no price increases in PCGS services during 2014. We appreciate your support and all the business you send our way. Shipping fees will increase slightly beginning on January 1, 2014.
At the beginning of 2013, PCGS introduced two new services: Reconsideration and Restoration. Both services have been extremely popular and you have come up with ideas on how to make them even better. Those ideas will be incorporated into our services in 2014 as follows.
Reconsideration: Beginning in 2014 you will be able to select Plus (+) upgrades and/or Suffix upgrades as part of the Reconsideration service. A total of four Reconsideration options will be offered:
1. Upgrade by a numeric point (current offering)
2. Upgrade by a Plus (new)
3. Upgrade by a Suffix (ex. CAM – DCAM, PL – DMPL, etc.) (new)
4. ‘Any’ which means any of the previous upgrades (new).
Remember the Reconsideration service is just an option for you. You can still submit any PCGS coin through the Regrade service as always.
Restoration: To date those coins that we determine cannot or should not be restored have simply been returned without grading. In 2014, you will be able to select an option allowing your coins to be graded even if it is determined that they cannot or should not be restored.
IMPORTANT info about coin flips: We are seeing a lot of coins that are submitted in poorly manufactured, PVC-contaminated, or even re-used flips. Some of these flips actually contain fragments of plastic or metal. The use of inferior flips can damage your coins and even cause scratches. We strongly encourage you to use a quality Mylar type
Mylar flips are available from PCGS either through the website or at a show. Please protect your coins! PCGS will not be held responsible for coins that are damaged due to being submitted in sub-standard flips.
Thanks again for your support and we wish you a happy holiday season and a successful New Year!
