Dear Collector,
A great photograph can reveal to the eye a great number of secrets that words cannot capture on their own. No truer is this than when it comes to capturing the brilliance of coins. PCGS TrueView is a wonderful add-on that gives you a high-resolution photography of the obverse and reverse of any coin that you send to PCGS for grading. A great picture is beneficial to quality listings when buying or selling, when showcasing your coins in the PCGS Set Registry Digital Coin Album, or for your own creative outlets. For those of you who will be joining us at this June’s Long Beach Expo, I’m pleased to announce that we are offering TrueView at 50% off. If you’ve yet to try it out, this is a great time to try out TrueView. For those of you already in the know, I look forward to seeing you at the Long Beach Expo this June!
Learn more about TrueView.

Ask Don: PCGS Collectors Club Member Needs to Attend One of Our Members Only Show

Posted on April 7, 2015 by No Comments

If you are a PCGS Collector Club Member you owe it to yourself to attend at least one of our Members Only shows in Las Vegas. The shows are small and very friendly. Usually 25-30 tables are setup with perhaps a total of 100 dealers and collectors in the room. However, the volume of buying and selling rivals most major shows. The Members Only Show is compact but very powerful. We offer special rates on rooms for all the attendees and lots of amenities. Check our Members Only Show, you owe it to yourself (your spouse won’t mind being dragged along on this coin trip!). Members Only Show

Ask Don: Pogue Collection

Don Willis

Posted on March 24, 2015 by 3 Comments

I am contemplating the Pogue collection, which will start selling in May, and the Kendall collection, which sells this week. These are marvelous collections that will be difficult to repeat, let alone improve on. What is common to both is the great length of time they took to build. Both were built slowly, year after year, carefully choosing coins that would complement what was already in place. A great collection cannot be built overnight, no matter how much money you have. But isn’t that what collecting is all about? The many hours that both collectors spent assembling these great collections were the true pleasure of owning these coins.
