I will, in general, opine that all variables being equal, except one has a CAC Green or Gold Sticker, the CAC piece will normally yield a better result. Whether or not an OGH is the cause of the increase, is at best a perception, as opposed to a definable percent, the difference being The Market has spoken (and loudly) that the CAC Sticker is desirable.
Thread title, "How much more is a old green holder with cac sticker worth than regular PCGS holders?"
No more, but the coin in an old green holder with CAC sticker might be worth than another coin in a regular PCGS holder.
The Market has not spoken in any definitive manner on this new TPG Grading Entity, and it will take time to opine in a meaningful way, until there is a heck of a lot more available comparisons to the collector. I would think 1-2 years, given the jumping off date and the Team JA has assembled. I will mention that the communication of the CACG Team with collectors has been very hands on and direct on the CAC website, and timely.
This is all conjecture but...
I would guess that the older holders were in use when grading protocols were a bit 'tighter' than they are now. Therefore, just about any coin graded at that time might grade a little higher if sent back in today.
As @Collecting Nut said, it all depends upon the coin in the holder. You might get more in an auction for the green label, but there are no rules.
Exactly! No set rules.
No, No, No......you are thinking of:
C R A P (Collector Rant Against Professionals)
I understand how some people get confused. No harm, no foul.
I would say that CAC is overrated. If you buy stuff only because “the numismatic pope” as blessed it, you are going to regret it. Usually it will be because you paid too much of a premium. On a small number of occasions, you will have bought an over graded and rare occasions a problem coin.
I agree. I will only buy a cac stickered coin personally if the premium above what it would be without the sticker is no more than a few bucks. It's somewhat gimmicky, but I understand why some would feel more comfortable with buying a coin that has been seen by more professionals.
You are factually correct, but the poor images on eBay, and other factors used by many sellers, knowing that assistance on the site is currently virtually unavailable to buyers, allows many fraudulent sales.
You and I think alike.
I would the OGH, beleive it or not it does matter and the reason it matters is the fact
that grading standards change over time
something that was once considered a 55
has now become a 58, the grading back in
the day was a bit more complicated conservative back then.
