Critical Things You Should Know About Grading Services and Coin Grading Fraud
What is coin grading fraud?
Unscrupulous sellers may list an auction for a coin that was graded by a third tier grading company; however, the seller will claim the coin value according to the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) values. For example, the seller may list a photo of the coin or group of coins and link to PCGS values. These sellers make it look like the gold coins were graded by PCGS, when in fact, they are overgraded and in third tier slabs.
A buyer may see that the coin is graded and slabbed, but they do not realize the problem until it is too late. There are different levels of coin grading services, and each has their own standards. Most likely this coin was graded by a grading service that does not have standards as rigorous as those of PCGS.
In order to not be taken advantage of by unscrupulous dealers attempting to sell you a coin, look at the slab the coin is in. If it is not in a PCGS holder, then the PCGS values are not applicable.
