CGC London office to finally open! I can now walk from walk from work to hand in my copies and let them do the legwork.

CCG London Office to Open on September 10, 2018

The office is now accepting submissions from collectors and dealers for NGC, NCS, PMG, CGC and CCS services.

The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) will open its London office on September 10, 2018. Operated by NGC International UK Ltd. (NGC UK), the office will accept submissions for five independent members of CCG: Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS), Paper Money Guaranty (PMG), Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) and Classic Collectible Services (CCS).

The NGC UK London office is located in the fashionable Bloomsbury area of London. It occupies the third floor of the building that houses the headquarters of Spink, a prominent auction house; the NGC UK and Spink spaces will be completely independent.

NGC, PMG and CGC are the world’s largest third-party coin, banknote and comic book certification services, respectively. Each company employs a team of specialists who authenticate collectibles, assign a grade on an internationally recognized scale and then encapsulate the collectibles in secure holders designed for long-term preservation. Collectibles certified by NGC, PMG and CGC are backed by the respective company’s guarantee.

These companies focus solely on providing expert and impartial certification services for collectibles. None of the CCG companies buy or sell collectibles, and their employees are prohibited from dealing in collectibles. In addition, their graders never know the identity of a collectible’s submitter, another measure to prevent any conflict of interest.

Certification by NGC, PMG and CGC has added transparency, confidence and liquidity to collectibles markets around the world. This has led to higher prices realized for NGC-certified coins, PMG-certified banknotes and CGC-certified comic books. Together, the companies have certified more than 50 million collectibles.

In addition to certification services, CCG provides professional coin conservation services and professional comic book conservation and restoration services through its independent member companies NCS and CCS, respectively.

"We look forward to serving collectors and dealers based not only in the United Kingdom but also those who visit from other countries," said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. "As our fifth global location, our London office furthers our efforts to make it easier to access our expert and impartial services."

NGC UK will provide comprehensive services for submitters. Collectibles submitted to NGC UK will be transported with full insurance coverage (based on the submitter’s declared value) to the CCG companies in the United States for authentication, grading and encapsulation. The collectibles are then transported back to NGC UK to be delivered to the submitter. NGC UK provides the shipping and insurance, and also handles customs clearance.

Submissions can be made by appointment to the NGC UK office or to NGC UK representatives at various coin, paper money and comics shows in the United Kingdom. NGC UK accepts submissions from paid Collector members and Authorized Dealers. To join, visit NGCcoin.uk/Join, PMGnotes.uk/Join or CGCcomics.uk/Join. One membership entitles you to submit coins, paper money and comic books.

The address of the NGC UK office is:
NGC International UK Ltd.
Third Floor, 69 Southampton Row
Bloomsbury
WC1B 4ET
London

Well sent off my 2nd ever package to CGC. Maybe ill have it back in a few months.... @kryptonite

8 of the 11 I'm basically getting graded to potentially sell practically all of them.

The other 3 are just 2 cool spiderman covers, and a Hulk 105 from 1968 ... not the best condition so that one will be most interesting what it grades out.

@tridon I was half tempted to send in my reprint copy of Giant Size Xmen only cause they have a $5 uptick charge for that same front cover that would appear on the actual label. I did the Hulk one tho on 2 Immortal Hulks, and a spiderman one on just a cheapie spiderman "Spider Geddon #1" that im getting graded as just looks like a cool cover to display.

I love those character labels that CGC's doing now. Adds something special to the overall appearance. Which Spider-Geddon #1 did you CGC? The Mondo variant?
 
@Wreck nice. I never went into CGC on anything before. I always wondered if you get the comic rated but display it in a spot that get sunlight and the sun messes with the cover if that could affect the grading
Can’t recall if it’s uv case. Either way the age old adage buy the comic not the grade comes to play. Not all 6s are the same. Same could be said of higher grades. It helps but if it’s sunned out it’ll be lower grade.
