  • NGC Grading Returns

    Hi Guys

    After finally sending some coins for grading 2.5 months ago I finally got my parcel back 2 days ago. Some decent(PF70) grades on proteas and ms 63 on mandela birthdays.

    However my parcel was opened by customs(sars) and sealed by sars(as per the sticker over it).

    I had to pay vat and customs clearence on it.Is this normal practice?
    None of my coins were missing. Thank goodness NGC marked the parcel correctly!

    If the procudure you followed to "export for re-import" your coins was NOT done properly you will end up paying VAT and Customs clearance. However the customs official was probably in a good mood as they would under such circumstances also hold your parcell and charge you import duties as well.
    Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!

      As per my experience, they only charge you VAT on the cost of the grading...
