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.
“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 the respective websites for NGCcoin, PMGnotes, or CGCcomics. One membership entitles you to submit coins, paper money and comic books.
