Renowned numismatist Rick Montgomery will offer free collector consultations at the FUN Show in January.
NGC will be offering free one-on-one consultations with a renowned numismatist at the NGC booth (#104). He will be providing expert insights into a coin's grade and surface condition for up to three of your coins. Evaluations are limited to the times listed below on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Thursday, January 10
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Even just a few minutes with Rick Montgomery can change a collector’s perception of what factors are important in determining a coin’s grade and what makes a coin special. The legendary coin grader and president of NGC is the industry’s leading authority on professional coin authentication, having personally graded many significant collections and rarities to come to market in the past two decades.
By examining your coins, he’ll help you understand why and how a coin’s grade is determined. He can explain why a grade already assigned to a coin is correct (or not!) or why a particular coin might be ineligible for certification. The goal of these consultations is to highlight what’s most important about grading the series that you collect, to help you build the best collection possible.
Since time is limited, NGC requests that you have three coins pre-selected and ready for examination. Coins to be evaluated may be raw (uncertified) or certified and encapsulated. Please visit the NGC booth during the show with questions about these consultations and other services offered during the convention.
