Over the course of a year, Heritage will offer the superb collection of early US coins by Donald G. Partrick. Among the rarities now graded by NGC are not just one, but two of the famous Brasher Doubloons, fabled rarities that rank among the most prized coins in all of numismatics.
The Royal Mint has partnered with Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. NGC is to grade and encapsulate portions of the British coins directly. This service aims especially at online buyers and those who will sell their coins again on the secondary market.
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation certified the Beeston Collection of over 200 British error coins with many different types of unusual and appealing errors. The whole collection can be now viewed online in the NGC Registry.
The Expedited Grading Specials that NGC and PMG have offered since early June are a huge success. Therefore, additional special events will be offered into the fall. The turnaround time for the Expedited Grading Specials will be just two weeks.
Even though CNG’s and PMG’s on-site grading events had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus, PMG will make it possible for submitters to enjoy the same fast turnaround times of the companies’ popular on-site grading events until these events can resume.
