AHCGS appears to be a new coin grading service, but claims they have "been serving the collecting community for over a decade" . What's not clear is how they were servicing the collecting community, as graders or dealers or as another grading service. I am always suspicious of new grading services with statements like this but no detailed information.
I also am suspicious when a company claims "We provide accurate grades every time!", and then back that up with "The grading of coins is an exercise of professional judgment and opinion, which can be subjective and may change from time to time. As a result, AHCGS shall assume no liability of any kind whatsoever and makes no warranties or representations to Customer for any grade assigned by AHCGS to any coins."
So please caution before buying any coin graded by AHCGS, and grade the coin with disregard to the label's grade.
The above information is subject to change as if often the case with most "low tier" grading services. Please inform the webmaster of an changes in the above information. If you have any information, opinions or facts on this company send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope you, the visitor of this web page, found this website before you purchased a graded coin at ebay or any other online venue. If not, don't despair, because here you will find all the information you need to buy graded coins without getting ripped off. It's better to learn this information now than never.
Ebay is only one of many websites that contain coin auctions or coins for sale in holders with an assigned grade. It's also apparent that uninformed collectors assume that a coin in a holder is authentic and graded appropriately, but such is not always the case.
It doesn't take a degree or training to buy coin holders, create the labels of your choice and encase coins inside. Furthermore, if you know how much coins are worth in different grades than you would be able to grade any coin, a grade of your choice, for the most profit. However, it doesn't stop there as many decide that can pass-off cleaned coins as problem free, or fake coins as authentic. If that's not enough, some have chosen to fake holders from the most respected grading services like PCGS and NGC.
So, I hope each visitor takes heed to the information contained in these web pages and buys graded coins accordingly.
