I don't know about other series Ira, but the gap between PCGS and NGC has all but
evaporated when it comes to Morgans. And with the current abysmal state of the customer
service at PCGS (75+ day turnaround) a lot of people including myself have switched our
submissions over to NGC, so PCGS coins are starting to become scarce. I really prefer the
PCGS holder over NGC's, but when it comes to getting the coins into holders to sell, I have
no choice since I buy all my coins raw for the most part.
