For those that will be attending the show, you can stop by the NGC booth to get any questions answered about the services they will have available. Note that with the cut-off time being flexible (it is determined by the time it takes to receive the limit of coins they will accept), if you want to take advantage of the service it is best to drop your coins off early in the show rather than wait until Sunday.
