PCGS Paris!

Posted on June 15, 2010 by

Bonjour to all our new friends in Paris. PCGS just concluded its first week of grading onsite in our new offices in Paris France. The anticipation on the part of all the PCGS personnel involved as well as PCGS authorized dealers from around the European Union was intense as we began accepting submissions last Monday. The turnout was quite good as many dealers from around Europe brought in a wide variety of coins for us to grade. Coins delivered to us on Monday and Tuesday were returned graded on Thursday and Friday just as promised. We were all a little bit like kids in a candy store wondering what we would be given to grade while the submitters awaited receiving their grades with great anticipation. We gave several tours of our operation, which as some of you know is rather unusual for us. Curiosity ran strong as everyone wanted to learn about grading and see first hand what our operation consisted of. Hats off to Muriel Emery, PCGS Director of International Operations and the manager of our Paris office, for a fantastic job of pulling together this event. Thanks also to our crack Operations and IT groups for a flawless inaugural trip. We may have been a few thousand miles from home, but the entire PCGS team put on a superb performance – as usual.

Paris is such a beautiful city. We didn’t have much time to play tourist but with the sun setting around 10:30 PM there was a little time to get around at the end of each day. My favorite thing about Paris is people watching. There are thousands of cafes with outdoor tables facing the sidewalks where everyone sips their coffee and engages in a process of mutual admiration!

We are looking forward to our next trip which will be in early September after everyone has returned from their month long August holiday. Stayed tuned for further details. Until then – au revior!
