NGC Coin Image Service

Numismatic Artistry | Abbott

Today I received the email from the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation (NGC) with the images from my recently submitted 1986 Gold Eagle coin. At first I thought $13 was a little too much for "images", but I am really pleased with the product NGC provided. For $13 you get 3 separate files; one being a composite of the obverse and reverse with an NGC background (4 MB), one being an image of the obverse of the coin (3 MB) and the other image of the reverse of the coin (3 MB). When I submit my next coin to NGC, I will definitely continue to add in the imaging service.

First Graded/Certified Coin

Coins-United States | Abbott

I have been a very casual collector; basically doing it for fun. Well, a couple weeks ago I went home and visited my parents. My mother knew I was collecting and we went thru the coin hoard that my step-grandfather had. She gave me this 1986 Gold Eagle $25 gold coin. I traveled back home and did some research, not really know much about this coin. After researching, I was shocked! Last week I sent it in to NGC. Today I received the completion email. NGC graded it at MS-68; valued at $875.00. I was hoping for MS-69 (or 70 - haha), but I will take the 68. This is my first time sending in a coin for grading and encapsulating. The process was quick, fairly inexpensive, and I'll do it again if the right coin comes around again.
