Hi Xxxxx, yeah, it could be worthwhile... but don't make my mistake and sign up for ELITE membership if you're going to send your coins to NCS first though... I joined up as an "ELITE" which doesn't give me 10% off NGC grading since I send my bears to NCS first. BUT if I were to send to NGC first, then I would get 10% off grading fees. Unfortunately and obviously I can't send my coins to NGC first and then to NCS. Including shipping, etc, you're looking at about a $30AUD premium per coin. The more coins you send, the lower the premium due to savings on postage, etc. Hope this helps. Kind regards, Yennus.
