CCG Continues Relationship as ANA Grading and Conservation Services of Choice

The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) has reached a written agreement with the ANA that provides for Numismatic Guaranty Corporation of America (NGC) to continue as the Association’s grading service of choice, Numismatic Conservation Services, LLC (NCS) to continue as the Association’s conservation service of choice and adding Paper Money Guaranty, LLC (PMG) as the paper money grading service of choice, ANA Executive Director Chris Cipoletti has announced.

All ANA members can continue to submit coins directly to NGC, without going through a third party. In addition, fellow CCG member companies PMG and NCS will accept direct submissions from ANA members. The ability to submit objects directly to CCG’s numismatic companies constitutes one of the most relevant and widely used ANA member benefits. NGC has been the ANA's official grading service since 1995 and NCS has been the ANA’s conservation service of choice since 2000.

CCG is an industry leader in third-party grading and certification of collectibles. All five CCG member companies have a reputation for integrity and impartiality, and are firmly rooted in supporting educational initiatives. CCG and the ANA have had a long-standing relationship that has been beneficial in promoting and supporting the best interests of the hobby.

"Our company is proud of its close relationship with the ANA," said Steve Eichenbaum, Chief Executive Officer of CCG. "We believe in the mission of the Association, and enjoy being of service to its members."

NGC will be a Title Sponsor of the ANA’s World’s Fair of Money and the National Money Show for the duration of the contract. In addition, CCG will provide instructors in grading and conservation for a number of ANA educational programs, including Summer Seminar and ANA conventions. "We’ re excited to continue this successful relationship," said Cipoletti. "CCG’s expertise, professionalism and dedication to numismatic education provide a great fit for the Association."
