Get Opinion on Grading


When you have shortlisted a coin to buy as a collection or only for purpose of investing. Ask about the coin’s grade & when was the coin graded. If the coin has been professionally graded, check into the grading service & investigate the grading. Is it independent from the dealer? What’s its reputation in the industry? Two services commonly used by dealers are Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). If you suspect or not sure that a coin’s grade is fake or has been modified, check out the serial number on the coin’s case or the grading document. Most legitimate graders assign a serial number to each coin they grade so buyers can verify the grade independently. You can check the serial number online or on the phone & this information is easily accessible.

Also, do plan to get a second opinion about the grade and value of the coin you’re considering as a double-check on the validity of the grade as this step is to ensure peace of mind about the validity of the coin grade & if it is valued for an appraisal.
