At the September Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com), September 8-10, Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) is offering PCGS Collectors Club Members and Authorized Dealers the opportunity to upgrade their non-PCGS encapsulated coins for PCGS holders as part of the exclusive Long Beach Expo Crossover Special.
Those taking advantage of the Crossover Special at PCGS booth 807 will pay a reduced fee for crossing over a coin from another third-party grading company, at $10 per crossed over coin, including usual submission fees.
“People want their coins in PCGS holders because, as evidenced by auction results year after year, PCGS certification maximizes the value of a coin, while securing the coin in the most advanced holder on the market,” said PCGS President Don Willis.
PCGS Collectors Club Members and Authorized Dealers must follow these guidelines to qualify for PCGS’ Long Beach Expo Crossover Special:
- Coins from ANACS, ICG or NGC holders will be accepted.
- A maximum of 600 crossovers can be submitted.
- Show Express orders are excluded from this special.
In addition to the $10 special crossover rate, crossed coins will include the regular grading fee and handling fee, as well as a Guarantee Premium, which amounts to 1% of the coin’s value in its final grade ($5 minimum Guaranteed Premium).
Coins that do not successfully cross will be returned in the original holder, with a $10 per coin fee and $10 handling fee per order assessed.
Any coins that are received after the first day of the show (Thursday, September 8 at 6:00 p.m. PST) may not be completed by show’s end (Saturday, September 10 at 5:00 p.m. PST). Submissions not returned by the end of the show are subject to any applicable shipping and handling charges, in addition to grading and Guaranteed Premium fees. In order to avoid overpayment, the suggested manner of payment is credit card.
PCGS is also offering on-site grading at the Long Beach Expo, as well as displaying two award-winning displays from the PCGS Set Registry: the ‘Fireball Rainbow‘ Lincoln collection and the Legend Collection of Liberty Seated Dollars.
Collectors Club Members and Authorized Dealers also have the opportunity to earn a 30th anniversary PCGS hat with any submission, or a 30th anniversary PCGS medal with a submission of 25 or more coins. Visitors to booth 807 can obtain free copies of the “Periodic Table of U.S. Coins” poster and “The Evolution of the PCGS Holder” poster, while supplies last, without any submission requirements.
