Green Valley, AZ (PressExposure) May 15, 2009 -- As a Coin Collector and Investor, always collect Certified and Graded coins by one of the Top Four. You can't get cheated! It is the most reasonable way to verify authenticity and identity of every coin in your collection, as well as to establish a reliable Value. Every source of prices for any coin, be it a yearly book, magazine, a weekly or monthly newsprint; all base their prices on the Grading Standards of the Top Four grading companies, which strictly follow the ANA (American Numismatic Association) guidelines. If the Grade of your coin does not measure up to these Standards, then you are only guessing at the Value.
Take advantage of the benefits of buying and collecting certified and graded coins. Guaranteed are the Authenticity, Identity and Grade of your coin by the grading company. You will be able to place a value or worth of your coin and collection with relative certainty, and when it comes time to sell or upgrade your coins, you will find a larger and more willing pool of buyers, who will be looking for the same benefits that you have found.
