Always be careful while pasting the address. Because NFTs sent to the wrong address cannot be recovered.

Now, a confirmation prompt will appear on the Coinbase wallet.

The MetaMask extension by nature will not show NFTs. You can only view the NFT entry if you import it.
However, you can view your NFTs in the MetaMask mobile application.
To do this, open the MetaMask Wallet mobile application.
Then, go to the “NFT” tab and tap on “Import NFT“.
Next, you need to paste the address and ID of the NFT contract.

Transferring NFT from Coinbase Wallet to MetaMask is not a simple task. However, this article has simplified the process with real-time screenshots.
When transferring NFT to another wallet, you need to be careful while copying and pasting the recipient’s wallet address. A wrong address means you’ve lost your NFT.
In addition, it is very important to keep the necessary crypto balance on your Coinbase wallet for the gas transaction fee/commission. The gas/transaction fee is approximately around ~$0.1 to $10 depending on blockchain congestion.
Always remember that you can only use the native token for the gas tax. For example, it is not possible to use the ERC20 version of MATIC to pay the gas tariff for the Polygon MATIC NFT transfer; You can only use the native version of the token.
To verify this transaction, you can use the blockchain chain explorer relevant to your NFT.
If the NFT is on Ethereum, use Etherscan; if it is Polygon, use Polygonscan.
Open the blockchain explorer and paste the transaction ID of this transfer. You can find the transaction ID (TxID) on Coinbase Wallet.
