In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, CoinWeek’s Ancients writer Mike Markowitz discusses the problems with authenticating and grading ancient coins. Mike gives you an overview of the qualities a collector can look for that align with the different grades on the Sheldon Grading Scale, as well as unique approachs that go beyond what a collector of classic and modern U.S. and World coins might be experienced.
Grading ancient coins can be a complex issue that presents a serious challenge for even the most well-trained classical numismatists, but beginners need not fear the topic.
