Although I already have VUCC satellite (#200 wow!), for those that don't yet what happens when you have enough confirmed grids via both paper cards and LoTW?

Will card checkers go to the trouble of looking at your LoTW account and compare them to the paper cards, or should the paper cards go to ARRL for credit towards VUCC?
