CoinWeek: We Take the PCGS Coin Grading Challenge! – 4K Video

At the 2016 American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim, California, CoinWeek Editor Charles Morgan met with PCGS CoinFacts founder and former PCGS President Ron Guth to take the PCGS Grading Challenge.

Ron gave Charles 30 minutes to review 20 classic and modern U.S. coins and render an opinion.

From scarce date Seated Liberty quarters to Proof Jefferson nickels and everything in between, the PCGS Grading Challenge will put any numismatist’s knowledge of coin grading to the test.

In this video, you will follow along with Charles as takes on each of the test’s 20 coins. Our macro lens captures each coin in beautiful detail.

Follow along with Charles or compete against him by making a tally of your own grades.

After Charles is done, Ron goes over each coin and reveals the grades that the world-class graders at PCGS assigned to each one.

Agree or disagree, this video is great fun and you will learn something about how to grade coins.
