To designate a silver or gold panda coin as a large date or small date "variety"  through NGC will now require electing the VarietyPlus option AND paying an extra $12 per coin in fees.

Looks like Pandas are the first non-US coins to qualify for varietyplus pricing status.  It may be a sign Chinese coins have become almost as important as US coins to their business.  Does this mean that the variety on the label will always be accurate now?

Doubtful. And then you'll have to pay for shipping both ways again to get it corrected. Anyone looked at their 2009 30th ann. commemorative coins? They spell commemorative wrong: "COMMEMERATIVE" (even though the correct spelling is right on the coin!).

They also increased the NCS modern service rate from $22.50 to $26.50 and added an $8 per submission form handling fee.

I have to wonder why make such an idiotic move when its main competitor PCGS is bringing the grading to Hong Kong which IMO is a whole other level of commitment to Chinese and Asian Coins collecting compare to those petty NGC submission Centers (yes maybe the charges is to support the running of those worthless submission centers in Guangzhou and other places). TALK ABOUT ARROGANCE.

My words, grading is more about investment, then collecting.

I am slowly leaning towards OMP!  This has really ticked me off.

Its just some coins have raw contact with PVC & need the conserving & grading!

Museum of natural history in NYC have any classes on conserving?
