NGC Named Official Grading Service of the PNG
Posted on 4/1/2004
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation is pleased to announce that it has been named by
the Professional Numismatists Guild as its Official Grading Service. This agreement
becomes effective April 15, 2004.
The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of the world's top rare coin and paper money experts. As numismatic professionals, their primary mission is to make the hobby safe for collectors and investors by maintaining rigid standards of excellence for their member dealers. The average PNG dealer has more than 25 years of experience.
“This is a win-win arrangement for both our members and NGC’s customers,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman. “NGC has demonstrated that it shares the PNG’s commitment to serving the coin industry through its sustained level of integrity and consistency.”
NGC was named the Official Grading Service of the American Numismatic Association in 1995. The addition of the PNG’s endorsement gives it a stamp of approval from the two most recognized and respected organizations in the rare coin hobby, representing both the collector and dealer communities.
“I’m really thrilled that the PNG is recognizing NGC’s superior service by naming it the Guild’s Official Grading Service,” observed Mark Salzberg, Chairman and CEO of NGC. “PNG members are the most honorable and professional figures in the coin business, and NGC is pleased to be associated with them.”
The logo of the Professional Numismatists Guild will be added to that of the ANA on all of NGC’s coin holders in the near future. This reflects NGC’s goal of expanding the PNG’s membership and promoting its positive values.
The PNG may be reached in care of Executive Director Robert Brueggeman at 3950 Concordia Lane, Fallbrook, CA 92028. The telephone number is 760-728-1300, and the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
