July 2003 Special for Newsletter Subscribers

NCS is pleased to announce a special July promotion for its Certification services.

Details Grading Special: NCS will cross all suitable certified problem coins, regardless of value, for $7.50 per coin. Additionally, if the coin does not cross, no grading fees will be charged.

Normally, NCS Details Grading fees start at $12 per coin and are based on declared value. Under this special, all certified "problem coins" can be submitted to NCS for cross over details grading. NCS will only cross those coins that will meet or surpass their current details grade when certified by NCS. Coins that do not get graded by NCS will not be charged any grading fees and will be returned in their current holders. To qualify for this special, submissions must be postmarked prior to July 31st and "July Special" must be written on the submission form.

The BIG Show

By most accounts, the coin market is stronger than it has been in a long time. Dealer-to-dealer activity continues to flourish, while the collector-driven side of the market is also remaining tremendously active. Combined with the fact that the ANA's Worlds Fair of Money is a month away, this could prove a very good summer for collectors and dealers alike.

To have your coins conserved and graded in time for the ANA in Baltimore, we highly recommend submitting them now. As a special service, you can even request that your coins be delivered to the show.

If you can't get your submission together right now, we will be accepting Expedite submissions for an additional fee, in the two weeks prior to the show.

Take advantage of the strong coin market and what may be the biggest show of the year, by submitting your coins now.

NCS representatives will be attending the ANA's Baltimore show to accept submissions and provide informal opinions concerning conservation, authenticity and Details Grade.

See you in Baltimore!
