If I send in certified coins from other third party graders, I want to know several things: 1. is it worth the cost. 2. What am I gaining. I'm new to collecting coins and several people have told me that I need to collect NGC or PCGS. I know that you work for or are partial to NGC but please give me some straight and truthful anwers. Thanks Dave confused.gif

Ok, I assume you are talking about crossovers. People crossover coins from other services holders to NGC holders for many reasons.The most common are:


1) They believe their coins will have increased liquidity in the NGC holder when it comes time to sell. Note that certification by any company does not guarantee liquidity.

2) They are assembling a set of all NGC certified coins.

3) They prefer the appearance of the NGC holder.


Is it worth the cost? I think you should direct that question to your fellow Society Members on the US Coins forum, though it would certainly depend on the coins. They are usually happy to jump in and help.


Even though I believe our company is the best, it is important to educate yourself so that you are ultimately buying the coin and not just the holder. Don't think this can be achieved in a short time period as it will take years in most cases.
