    @walleye710 I would give them a call and ask them. Did you possibly sign up for online version?

    Me three! Also bought that NGC membership for $99 with the $150 credit that I need to figure out how to use. Love that Hugh Wood insurance - really affordable and, in my opinion, it's the best security measure you can have (along with a good inventory - I'm at about 85% there). In addition to having my own records I use the free Numista online inventory for my coins and exonumia - does anyone else? I didn't like it at first, but now I really like it - and the ability to export excel files is great.

    As mainly a world coin collector, I find Numista valuable. I catalogue my collection there and it's a breeze to find your coins easily. I signed up with the $150 credit at NGC too. I sent in a world submission of 7 coins. They deducted the $150 credit and charged my card the remainder. I had to verify my ANA credentials on the NGC website. All in all a pleasant experience, but a long turnaround time. I did submit economy though.

    Honestly, I don't remember now and my membership papers don't suggest anything. I will call them. Thanks.

    That was the problem. I called them and a very helpful young lady said she'd fix the problem for me. I don't know why I did that because I don't normally like digital subscriptions - but I did. A senior moment I guess. Thanks again.

    I, too, have habitually renewed my subscription, but the last time I was going to, I called to give a credit card number and was told that I no longer had to pay for it. I think The Numismatist is worthwhile and have even contributed articles from time to time.

    There’s already numerous long threads on this if you do a search.

    I joined in 2015 but let my membership lapse last year. Debating about whether to rejoin.

    They do - call and ask about the "emeritus membership". There isn't a lot about it on the site, other than some board meeting minutes when it was approved.

    It's the same basic benefits as a LM.
