Graded coins

Recommended Posts

Ive just bought my first graded coin, im now looking to add to it, I have a few questions for the more experienced on the forum.

Is there a better graded coin to buy ? I mean i have seen a few ie- NGC, PCGS etc, should i stick to the MS70 coins for best return ? 

Are you able to check the coins are really graded ? 

Anything to watch out for buying graded coins other than the usual things.

 

Thanks in advance a confused billy ! 😩

1) NGC and PCGS are the best graders, for future re-sale value and mass-market appeal.  ANACS are acceptable, but second-tier.  Other  graders aren't worth the time or money - although CGS UK is well thought of over here.

2) As with all coins, buy what your budget allows.  A MS-70 will always sell for more than a MS-69, and will always be less common. 

3) Not entirely sure what you mean by checking the coins.  NGC and PCGS coins both have unique serial numbers - you can enter this into their websites and check that the coin corresponds to what you have in your hand.  However, fake slabs are a problem, albeit on high-end gold coins and Krugerrands.

NGC Rating holds more credibility in my eyes yet quality dealers like,Jon Blyth seem to like PCGS,probably struck a deal...............just ask Numistacker hes the Forums resident slabber he'll even send em over with a group parcel if you want him to,like that idea,never do yourself what you can get someone else to so for you is my motto..................one plug owed by Numistacker to Ravinella there................but I aint got anything to plug:)

Check out his vids on youtube tell you all you need to know I would think..............
