Not sure where I would get better answers than on Collectibles forum.  I have a few questions about filling out the submission form in the hopes of not spending too much, but at the same time getting my coins graded without any issues.  If anyone has used this service, would you mind helping me out?

Variety seems to be the column where most of the info about the coin needs to be placed, what's the most important info that should go in this column, and will ANACS actually use this information?  Not much space to write information in...

When you send your coins to them, do you ever use the $29 conservation option?  Have you ever had coins sent back ungraded if you didn't?

That's all I can think of for now, but if you have any additional tips, I would greatly appreciate your responses!

Thanks - Newk

For crypto coins? Description something like this:
CASASCIUS 1 BITCOIN GILT SILVER
CASASCIUS 1 BITCOIN "CASACIUS" ERROR
Fill in the other columns w/ year, denomination, etc.

For non-crypto coins? Use NGC or PCGS.

Never used conservation with crypto, coins are too new to have any significant impurity buildup. Seemed like something possibly useful to "clean" old coins (think spots, PVC buildup from crappy storage, dirt/grime..). Like if you found a tin of old gold coins buried in your back yard... might be worth it

Paying $3 for the photo is up to you, some people like it, but I usually don't spring for it.

Thanks for the reply Dazed, I had a feeling the conservation option wasn't necessary for crypto.  They add that scare statement in their terms that basically says, we reserve the right to not certify with no refund if you don't select it.  Just wanted to get a better idea of what they would turn down.

Just to add to dazed's comment - I always put the firstbits and denomination (if any) of the coin (if i want them on the slab) in parentheses in the description, and leave the denomination field blank (probably doesn't matter, I just assumed that meant USD)? as I don't trust them to just do that, even though I have heard they will. I also leave the "country" field blank, as I don't usually know.

I know the feeling though - doing that form for the first time can be stressful if you are new to it. Then the stressful part of shipping your precious'es there and back and the wait/hope for the high grades!?... ah... the joys of collecting coins. LOL. Tongue

Thanks!
