A major advance, the scratch-resistant holder represents the latest in optical technology by using a clear UV-cured hardcoat to minimize scratching of the holder.
NGC debuted its Scratch-Resistant EdgeView® holder at the Florida United Numismatists' Show in Orlando, Florida.
The Scratch-Resistant EdgeView® holder components are coated with a clear UV-cured hardcoat, creating an invisible layer which significantly increases surface resistance to scratching and abrasion. This same coating is used to protect delicate eyeglass lenses while maintaining their transparency and represents the latest in optical technology.
NGC Vice President Scott Schechter comments, “This is a major advancement in the sophistication and technology of coins holders and would not have been possible just a few years ago. It's also the result of NGC's ongoing commitment to providing the best holder available. This exceptional level of scratch resistance means that coins will always be presented in the best possible way.”
Beginning Monday, January 12, the Scratch-Resistant EdgeView® holder will be used on all WalkThrough and Express grading submissions, for both US and World coins, and for all on-site services provided at major conventions. Additionally, NGC will introduce a new reholder service to have coins previously certified by NGC encapsulated in a Scratch-Resistant EdgeView® holder at $10 per coin.
