Reholdering imperial Roman coins from ANACS to NGC?

1 post in this topic


I recently purchased 2 imperial roman denarii which were in ANACS slabs. I am very pleased with the coins. If I were to ever resell these coins (and I have no intention to unless in economic distress), would it be better to be in NGC holders? These are not high grade coins (Hadrian F12 and Commodus XF45), but I do like NGC's strike/surface designation as well as the descriptions of the obverse and reverse and all my other Roman coins are in NGC slabs.


Based on other NGC coins I have, I would guess the Hadrian denarii would rate: strike 3/5, surface 3/5 and the Commodus denarii the same (maybe a 4/5 on strike: Commodus's profile is quite sharp, but some of the lettering is soft/worn away after the name) Unfortunately I have no camera that will take any worthwhile photos to show anyone!


Rumor has it that many ancients collectors do not care for slabbing, but for me it is a way to protect the coin and valididate authenticity.


So, is it worth getting the coins reslabbed to NGC?


Thanks for any comments
