The ICCS Certificate has looked the same for decades. We have received numerous requests to add additional comments on the certificate. You asked, we listened.

We would like to announce our new certificate with an extended comments section and an ICCS watermark for additional security.

Featured Coin

Mint state nickel coins can challenge the grader

The George V nickel series extends from 1922 through 1936. For mint state collectors it is a series that is a challenge. There are two reasons. First it is a difficult series to grade. Second, true mint state examples are very hard to find, especially in grades at or higher than MS-63. When high grade MS-63 or better coins are offered in the marketplace they are likely under appreciated as well as being undervalued. This article explores the grading and pricing/rarity aspects of this series.
