Interviewer: David Lisot, CoinWeek.com ……….

Grading ancient coins is still an area of controversy.  Old school numismatics believes that coins of antiquity are meant to be held and appreciated in a tactile fashion.

Third party grading is changing that perspective. Now ancients can be  graded by an independent third party with their grade and authenticity guaranteed.

Many new collectors see this as an advantage to their collecting. Hear some of the industry experts share their views.

    I think there’s a bigger problem with fakes in this area of coin collecting, especially with beginners. So grading seems like a pretty positive thing in these cases. As for more experienced ancient collectors, it’s really up to them. But not everyone has the time and luxury to know what is and is not a fake ancient coin
