Has anyone send Raw/Uncertified Coins to "Great Collections" for grading?

No, but it's a question that crossed my mind earlier today.
I found this.
There are and always have been auction sites and auction houses who will get your coins graded for you. You send agree to consign your raw coins to them, send them to the auction company, they in turn send them to the TPG and get the coins graded. You still pay for it, it's just deducted from your check once the auction is completed.
That's assuming they think your coins merit it.
Granted, and as a general rule that's a good thing. As is using the service to begin with.
Have any of you or anyone else used this discount raw coin service with GC?
And If so, how was the service? And which TPG Company graded your coins most?
I did it once with a gold $1 and a nicely toned commemorative. I let them select the TPG and they went with NGC. The G$1 graded well and did fine at auction. The commem bagged for QC and I set somewhat high reserve on it. It never got any bids and was eventually returned to me (where it bagged several more times on my dime). I paid a reduced fee (maybe $10?) for each coin.
Wow do you have a photo of this commem by chance @mill rat41 ??? I and im sure other members would like to see what this oft-rejected coin looks like.
Thanks for input. My concern is to many hands handling coins. Whats your thoughts about this?
