ngc just seem better to me but i own coins in both
The outcome would have been reversed. It has taken some time, but people have finally begun to learn that PCGS is not the end all be all when it comes to grading coins. They have begun to realize that PCGS is very inconsistent in how they assign grades.
knowledge ..... share it
What, do they like use a conveyor belt and randomly choose 70's of the bullion eagles?
this poll does not really mean anything - NGC and PCGS are good and not so good - it depends on the coin. NGC is better at some and PCGS is better with others.
what about ICCS? i guess this is meant to be US coin specific?
I presonally prefer a clear holder and I think PCGS grades tighter. I think NGC is sometimes a point looser. I can't stand the white holders NGC use. I also like how PCGS holders stack.
Based on what is normal at coin shows any slab from PCGS is always going to be higher priced. I've been going to 2 to 4 coin shows for many, many years. I've seen slabs from more organizations that I thought were possible. I read somewhere that there is now over 100 TPGS's. Yet dealers at coin shows always think they are inpressing you by saying, but this coin is cetified by PCGS. I seldom hear dealer say that about NGC or any others. I've seen dealers put the PCGS slabs in front so people would see that they have them. It may be that NGC or others are just as good or even better, but like I said, at coin shows it's the PCGS slabs that get bragged about.
OH, forgot. I do not have any slabbed coins. I have purchased some in the past but broke the coins out. I collect coins, not plastic.
I do not like NGC, they tend to add a level or two when evaluating coins. I have several slabbed NGC Morgans and dealers have told me that the ratings on them from NGC are off by one or two. Who knows? I am a newbie to all this so it is a constant learning process.
NGC does sometimes up the coin up one grade, thanks to any attractive toning
I find that PCGS is a pain in the "Reverse" with their slightly oversized slabs which won't fit well in anybody else's slab boxes or those beautiful mahogany boxes with 3 trays sold by ANA. I have not had enough experience with either to have any other opinion.
I going PCGS, simple because PCGS coins seem to bring mor money and some places i go they look at NGC and say thats a week grading service.
But, you send a coin to NCG i think you will get a better grade than to PCGS, but not always. Maybey thats why your sayin NGC ALL THE WAY!!!!
But honestly you could get everyvote in here, its been done and they are always about even
