What is grading and why should you get your coins or currency graded by PCGS or NGC?
Coins and currency are assigned a condition, or grade, based on a numeric system from 1 to 70, as well as the traditional evaluation from Fair to Mint State (for business strikes). In many cases, one numerical difference in a graded coin or currency can result in a significant increase or decrease in value.
While the cost of getting a coin or currency graded by PCGS or NGC may not be beneficial in every case, items of value may be worthy of grading for the following reasons: Authentication – guarantees that the item is not counterfeit or altered in any way.
Variety attribution – many series of coins such as Morgan dollars, Capped Bust half dollars, etc. were minted with slight “differences” that have created another aspect of collecting. These varieties can result in significant increases in value. Both PCGS and NGC provide a service to identify these varieties.
Marketability – once a coin or currency is encapsulated with a stated grade, it provides an independent “opinion” that is required by the major auction houses as well as sophisitcated dealers and collectors. Let us walk you through the process of determining if grading your coins and/or currency is worthwhile, and submitting your items in the most cost-effective manner.
Investing in rare coins has been one of the most lucrative endeavors for several decades. We constantly monitor pricing trends, certified coin population statistics, and estimated survival rates.
We will help you purchase or sell an investment portfolio, and maintain the records while you maintain the physical possession of the portfolio. You may contact us to learn more about our services.
