Separates the Grade from Premium Quality
In every field, there are a select few that
represent the best of the best. Coins are no exception. Now
there's an easy way to identify premium quality coins within
any particular grade. Just look for the CAC verification sticker.
Third-party grading services have revolutionized our industry
by evaluating the condition of coins. Evaluations, however,
can be subjective and over time, coins of varying quality
have received the same grade. That's why leading members of
the numismatic community formed CAC - to identify and formalize
the existence of premium quality coins.
We only consider previously graded coins, submitted by CAC
Submission Centers, and will only award our sticker to those
coins that meet our standards for premium quality.
Coin holders should be clean and free of stickers.
All coins must be submitted on a CAC invoice.
