Become a smarter collector and learn how to preserve your investments

Coin Grading, Problem Coins & Conservation (two-day seminar)

The ANA School of Numismatics is offering an educational course held in conjunction with the annual Virginia Numismatic Association (VNA) Convention. “Coin Grading, Problem Coins & Conservation” will be offered prior to the VNA show.

The biggest mistake collectors and dealers make is buying coins they shouldn’t have purchased in the first place — coins that have grade, surface or conservation issues that they didn’t see. This two-day seminar will help students avoid costly mistakes by developing their grading skills and teaching them to spot a wide variety of surface problems, enhancements, alterations and conservation issues that can adversely affect a coin’s grade.

The material covered is comprehensive and suitable for novice and experienced collectors. The seminar uses images, discussion and hands-on examination of hundreds of certified graded and details graded coins in the ANA’s Grading Sets.
