There are two top tier grading companies that are widely accepted in the precious metals industry as being the two leading grading companies; Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and Professional Coin Grading Services (PCGS). We would recommend members to choose coins graded by these companies. Coins graded by these companies generally trade to a premium over coins graded by other less popular grading companies.
I collected a gold bullion at a local dealer yesterday. Because of my excitement checking the griffin silver coin, i forget to check the royal arms bullion. When i go home, then see a scratch on cheek...what a stupid mistake...may i know if it affects the coin value?
I would go standard myself unless you are sure you won’t need to sell and prefer a special. When people buy they want to match other coins. Personally I find special labels detract from the coin, and most of these new labels can look a bit tacky.
I saw that but its nothing really special. I sent an email to both NGC and PCGS 2 days ago, asking if there are any special labels for the 3G collection. I have not heard back. Will post, once I hear back.
Also, I always inspect my own coins before sending with a 30x mag to check. If I think its good to go, then I decide if I want to send in or not. Last time, I sent 3 coins, 2 V75 Silvers and one 24K 1/2 oz Gold and all 3 came back perfect 70s.
