What is grading
The grading of coins and banknotes by an independent and external party is gaining in popularity. Both among collectors and investors. When grading coins and banknotes, each coin and banknote is assessed by an independent expert for quality, authenticity and restorations. The coin or banknote is then packed in an airtight and sealed ‘slab’ or ‘sleave’ with a label stating the description, date and quality (grading). The two largest providers of this service are the American companies NGC and PCGS. Jongeling Numismatics & Ancient Art is an Authorized Dealer for NGC, PMG and PCGS and takes care of the entire grading process for you.
