NCS Certifies American Colonial Coinage

Posted on 2/1/2003

Effective immediately, NCS will certify American colonial and confederation coins under its Authentication and Encapsulation Only service and Details Grading service.

Like its official grading service, NGC, NCS will certify colonial and confederation coins as listed in the pre-federal chapters of R.S. Yeoman's A Guide Book of United States Coins.

Fugio CoinUnder its Authentication and Encapsulation Only service level, NCS will attribute and encapsulate all colonials as genuine only. No grade will be provided on the label.

Under the NCS Details Grading service level for problem coins, each coin will be identified, authenticated and assigned a details grade and description of the detrimental surface condition, i.e. AU Details, Corroded. Authenticity is guaranteed and no "net" grade is assigned.

NCS only certifies "problem" coins in its details grade holder. Any coin submitted under the NCS Details Grading service level that is suitable for non-problem coin grading will be transferred to NGC on behalf of the submitter. All coins, regardless of condition, can be submitted for Authentication and Encapsulation.

NCS's encapsulation is the same size and shape as NGC's hermetically sealed holder.
