I usually collect my coins in the raw but I was tempted to send some for grading and I got them back today. Here are some pictures, not that great pictures but should give an idea...

Though the grading costs around $17-$20 for grading, with shipping and handling it costs around $25 a coin. As a general rule, unless the coin is worth more than $100-$200 or u really want to see it slabbed for fun because its ur favorite coin, it is not worth it. 

You can find more details about it at www.ngccoin.com

Before you get your coin graded, do lookup what a TPG is, what they do to guarantee the authenticity of the coin, understand what grades mean (if u didnt already) and then evaluate what grade your coins is, how much they cost and if it would be worth spending money on grading.

Very nice BC. Super liked :)

But I wonder why you were tempted to get these slabbed. You planning to do a registry set or something?

I wanted to send in the best coins I had and see how they graded. Also wanted to have a reference grade set. I always try to get coins that are UNC+, try to weed out altered surfaces, cleaned coins, polished coins, etc and I can never be sure if they really are not. This is probably one way of assuring myself that they indeed are.

I was really surprised that the 1/4 rupee came back as 66. I rarely see a 66 on any auction for a quarter rupee. The population report lists a 67, but I am more than happy to have a 66 :)

I know the feeling when they come back as "Details".  I am still new to working with NGC and I have learnt the hard way.  When I first submitted 12 coins to NGC,  2 came back MS66 (huge winners),  2 came back AU53 which I was expecting AU58 to MS61 and the rest were all "DETAILS"!!!!   Aagh! 

 

So now I look at the surface of a coin very carefully and look for any signs of cleaning and also look out for nicks and surface marks and don't accept it as Unc just because the seller says it is. I have a lot to learn and a new respect for GEM MS65 or better coins!

@kidromeo thanks for the reply, the above thread is all about carrying coins to India from abroad, but my query is about carrying them abroad from India.

My guess would be that the customs laws regarding bullion won't vary much as my brother who is an Indian passport holder in US and my uncle who is an US resident bring my coins without any customs hassles but still I would recommend private messaging @broken compass with your question. I'm sure he had done it several times.
