Simplifies Fee Structure
Effective September 15, 2003, in an effort to simplify
and standardize submissions, NCS will be changing its
fee structure. The evaluation fee will remain the same.
The conservation fee will now be a flat fee of 2% for
coins valued up to $25,000 and 3% for those above $25,000
(with a $10 minimum). Grade protection is included as
part of the conservation fee resulting in a lower overall
fee. Details of our new fees are as follows:
Evaluation 1% of declared value* with a $5 minimum fee.
NCS is also making changes to its certification services.
This includes the introduction of a photo-certificate
program for items that are too large for the standard
encapsulation and digital imaging as well as a variety
Conservation 2% for coins valued up to $25,000 with
a $10 minimum and 3% for coins valued over $25,000.

market value and NCS reserves the right to make adjustments
for under-valued items. Grade protection only applies
to certified coins submitted by NCS to its approved
