Free one-on-one consultations

David Camire, President of Numismatic Conservation Services™ (NCS®) and NGC Finalizer, is offering free one-on-one coin evaluations on August 9-10 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the NGC booth.

Camire is an authority on modern minting technology and production, specializing in mint errors and Chinese coins. He has visited many mints, both domestically and internationally, which is not only insightful but useful in his role as NGC Modern World Coin Grader and Finalizer. Co-author of “100 Greatest U.S. Error Coins,” his knowledge of the minting process is helpful in distinguishing mint defects from damaged coins and establishing a coin's authenticity and grade. In 2021 and 2022, Coin World named Camire one of the 100 most-influential people in numismatics.

Free consultations are open to collectors only, and evaluations are limited to the times listed on a first-come, first-served basis.

NGC will hold a free grading contest from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on August 9-11. Participants will have the chance to win NGC grading credits and cash prizes.
