Buying CGS graded coins

When buying CGS graded coins it's worth considering the grade and how it translates in to a traditional grade, especially now they no longer put a traditional grade on the slab just a number. So for instance by looking at the chart below a CGS 78 would equate UNC or MS 63-64 on the Sheldon scale.

CGS Numerical grade to traditional UK grade and then the PCGS/NGC average:

100 FDC MS70
99 FDC MS70
98 FDC MS70
97 FDC MS70
96 FDC M69
95 FDC MS 68 -69
94 AFDC MS68
93 AFDC MS 67 -68
92 AFDC MS67
91 AFDC MS66 -67
90 NFDC MS 66
88 BU -NFDC MS65 -66
85 Choice UNC - BU MS 65
82 Choice UNC MS 64 -65
80 Choice UNC MS 64
78 UNC MS 63 -64
75 UNC or near so MS 62 - 63
70 AU MS 60 -61
65 GEF MS 60 -61
60 EF AU58 - MS60
55 NEF AU55
50 GVF AU55
45 GVF AU 53
40 VF AU 50
35 NVF EF 45
30 GF EF 40
25 GF F35
20 FF 30
15 NF
10 VG
8 VG
5 GOOD
4 FAIR
3 FAIR
2 FAIR
1 FAIR


 The second thing you need to know is the UIN number can be used to bring up details of the coin on the CGS website. You will need to register to do so but doing so means you can use all the free features like population reports, valuation by grade and so on.

 First port of call for CGS graded coins would be here.

Thanks.
