On Oct. 22, GreatCollections sold a CACG-graded MS-66 Maryland Tercentenary Commemorative Half Dollar for $429.

CAC-graded coins were encapsulated in the new CAC office in Virginia and are in new CACG holders. CAC-approved coins are in PCGS or NGC holders with CAC stickers. From now on, CAC-graded coins will be referred to as CACG. On July 24, Heritage sold four PCGS-graded MS-66 Maryland half dollars, not one of which had a CAC sticker, for $252, $228, $228, and $222, respectively.

A CACG-certified MS-66 coin thus brought twice as much as each of four different PCGS graded MS-66 Maryland commemorative halves.
