They offer onsite at various shows, price is based on coin and whether it can in fact be autheticated at the show, some rare coins are sent by pcgs etal to other experts for confirmation, the onshow cost can exceed $100.00

i found this - but having trouble understanding what they mean by "show submissions" and other service level submissions

is the show submission on-site grading at the premium price?

http://www.pcgs.com/Shows/Detail/6165

On-site grading will be offered! Show submissions will be accepted through Friday. All other service level submissions will end late morning/early afternoon Saturday. PCGS Representatives will be able to answer questions, accept submissions (excluding Bulk), and provide specific hours for submission cutoff times. For further details, please check with a PCGS Representative at the booth.
