NGC Launches Online Verification for Mobile Devices
Posted by NGC on 12/3/2009
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation introduces NGC Mobile, a new mobile site that allows collectors to verify an NGC certification on cell phones, PDAs and other mobile devices. This site can be accessed from any mobile browser at http://m.NGCcoin.com
This new site is part of NGC’s ongoing initiative to provide the highest level of protection to coin collectors. In late 2008, NGC introduced a high-security holder and began photographing all tier-level submissions. These images were made available using a web-accessible verification tool early in 2009. Now this new mobile site makes it possible to verify the authenticity of any NGC-certified coin using a mobile device, anywhere at anytime.
NGC Mobile is free to use, open to all, and very easy to use. Click for step-by-step instructions.
Steve Eichenbaum, CEO of NGC, comments, "The series of enhanced security services that NGC has introduced offer a level of protection never before available in the rare coin marketplace. Not only do they expand the preference for NGC-certified coins, but they also add to the enjoyment of collectors pursuing their hobby."
Additionally, NGC Mobile is fully compatible with cell phones and other devices that use Wireless Application Protocol, a platform chosen to ensure that it works with the broadest possible range of devices. Additionally, each page load consists of only 1kb of data, and images are less than 25kb, optimizing the site in areas where high-speed coverage is not available and responsibly managing bandwidth usage.
