Opinions please on current NGC grading results for Ikes

Hi gang!

What are your current opinions regarding NCG Ike grading compared with PCGS?

I ask given the apparent relaxing of PCGS standards given the coins that we are now seeing being graded.

How does NGC compare?

Thanks!

I've written about this many times in the past, at great length. In short:

NGC = 1 full point on average behind PCGS - in ALL coins.

PCGS = horrifically inconsistent in grading.

NGC = much more consistent in grading than PCGS.

PCGS = tend to command a slightly better value in the market place.

Best Advice: learn how to grade properly, and buy PCGS coins that have a coin worthy of the label above it.


EASILY half of all PCGS Ikes are over-graded, including 95% of PR70DCAM PCGS Ikes - most area barely worthy of 69. For this reason, I have never bought a 70 Ike. I've got FAR BETTER examples in PR69DCAM holders from my own searches and submissions, at a small fraction of the cost.
