Hi there everyone,

 

I happy to see a forum like this existing! Being a relatively new coin collector, you end up having questions that are hard to find answers for.

 

I have a Morgan Dollar that may be of some value and I would like to send it to be certified. How do you package the coin for transport and what info do you include with the coin?

 

Thanks!

Terry

Hi Terry,

 

The two main grading companies are PCGS and NGC. For a Morgan Dollar, I think it'd likely cost $25-30 for the grading, plus $30 or so for return postage, in addition to your registered postage / courier costs to get it there.

 

For either grading company's website, you can get a form that you'd need to fill in, to send with the coin. Usually coins are sent in clear plastic flips/holders.

 

If you're in a larger city, you may be able to find a dealer who can send on your behalf.

 

That may be easier since the cost should be lower than sending a piece on your own, and also you wouldn't have to worry about potential customs problems when the piece re-enters Canada.
