Re: Vancouver Show inspiring!

Jesse - that makes a lot of sense. While I primarily use PCGS for grading, they are not without problems. I have taken back numerous "mechanical errors" for repair / correct attribution (a free service). While they have improved greatly with Canadian grading, they still have a learning curve that needs to be scaled. Since Canada is not their main focus, I suspect it will still take years.

We have come to expect that ICCS should not make mistakes. While there have been some whoppers out there in the past, if you consider the volume of coins they have certified, their error rate is still pretty small. In my view, their biggest problem remains the insecurity of their soft holders. This makes all coins graded by them suspect, unless you have personally submitted the coin(s).

We also need to realize that experts within Canada do not always agree. In fact, run some specimens across the bourse sometime and tally up the different opinions.
