Grading and specific grades


Recommended Posts

Quick question on grading, when sending coins off to be graded is it possible to have coins only slabbed and graded if they meet specific grades such as PF69 or PF70 ?

Otherwise they will be returned as is. I appreciate having to pay costs in either case and would only send coins that stand a good chance.

To the best of my knowledge there is no service available where you request minimum grade for initial grading.

However if you crossover for example from PCGS to NGC you can request that the coin does not cross at a lower grade so that it at least holds it present grade.

You can always crack them open when they are returned to you.

I've heard that plenty of people crack open the slab and re-submit their coins a second time in the hopes of getting a grade bump from a re-assessment.

When you crack open the slab I think you're meant to post the label back to PCGS/NGC so they can take the coin out of their population reports.
