A little more than 30 years ago, a coin dealer from California and a close circle of his dealer friends bestowed new life upon the rare coin industry with the introduction of a market-acceptable third-party grading service.

But there is far more to the story of the early days of PCGS than what you know, and the industry as we know it today was built because of and in spite of the ideas that went into the creation of the company.

We talk to two men who know more about it than anybody else: PCGS founders David Hall and John Dannreuther.

I ask them what they got right and what they got wrong with the concept behind PCGS and whether the industry as we know it today would even be recognizable to them back when they launched the company.

It’s an interesting 40-minute conversation and it’s coming up next on the CoinWeek Podcast
