ReGrade
(Also select a grading tier)

If you disagree with a grade assigned by NGC, you may submit the coin for review for a higher grade. The coin must be intact in its NGC holder. Choose a grading tier according to the coin’s value and the tier requirements. Coins are graded according to NGC’s grading standards, and a higher grade is not guaranteed. Fees are not refunded if a higher grade is not received. A coin submitted for ReGrade will be removed from its NGC holder by NGC staff and encapsulated with a new NGC holder, label and certification number, even if the grade does not change. A coin submitted under ReGrade is guaranteed to not receive a lower grade.

CrossOver
(Also select a grading tier)

Review of PCGS-holdered coins for NGC certification. Coins will be removed from their holders and encapsulated by NGC only if NGC determines that the coins will receive an NGC grade that is the same grade or higher than the grade assigned by PCGS. If you would like your PCGS-holdered coin certified by NGC even if NGC determines that it will receive a lower numeric grade, specify ANY in the CrossOver Minimum Grade column of the NGC Submission Form. If you would like your PCGS-holdered coin certified by NGC even if NGC determines that it will receive an NGC Details grade (or a lower numeric grade), specify DETAILS in the CrossOver Minimum Grade column of the NGC Submission Form. You may not request a minimum grade that is higher than the grade that is on the PCGS holder. If your PCGS-holdered coin is not certified by NGC the grading fee will be refunded less a £10 processing fee. Coins holdered by other grading services are not eligible for CrossOver and must be removed from their holders and submitted raw (not holdered), or they may be submitted in their holders if they are accompanied by NGCʼs Consent to Remove Coin(s) from Holder(s) Form. For more information about CrossOver, click here.
