“Details” Coins and point values for NGC registry
0

3 posts in this topic

I am looking to purchase my first gold coin. I am finding neat liberty coins that are NGC certified unc details, and au details. My question would be if I purchase one of these coins, register it, and add it to a competitive set will my overall score go up? Do “detail” coins have a point value?

Are NGC Details Grade coins weighted the same in the Registry?

No, NGC Details coins earn 50% of the score given to a numerically graded coin of the same condition. NGC Details Grades include a prefix that indicates wear (UNC, AU, etc.) and a notation of the detrimental surface condition that prevented NGC from assigning a numerical grade. Learn more about NGC Details Grading.

So, your score will go up but it won't go up as much as it would if the coin wasn't a details grade.
