I have learned recently that some companies on their website will verify their 3rd party graded coins. PCGS and NGC when you go to their website will verify the coin by entering the code on the encapsulated plastic holder. After doing this they will tell you everything about the coin and even its current worth. I suggest before buying a 3rd party graded coin anywhere to verify the coin and its current value. Other 3rd party grading services may offer this service such as ANACS and ICG. Avoid counterfeit coins and fake graded coins by verifying your coin before purchase.. You could lose bigtime by not doing this. I also recommend staying with mainstay grading services such as these four when buying coins as some buyers will not accept little or unknown grading services. Some grading services are phony and highgrade the coins they sell. Good luck!!!!
