A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Preparing an NGC Submission

Medals | coinsbygary

There are some things I don't particularly care to do. When it comes to those things, I usually procrastinate getting them done. Preparing submission forms to send coins and medals to NGC for grading is something I always procrastinate. I just don't like itemizing the submission form, looking up the market value, separating my medals from my coins, modern vs. classic, etc. Then packing them up and running to the post office is such a pain in the neck. Well, today I finally said, "This is the day" and I grabbed the first item to be submitted.
