    Referring to QA-check stickers? They don't have the market presence that CAC does, but they do have a good reputation with the stuff they handle.

    Both have great people behind them. There is little to no overlap between the coins they sticker so there really isn’t competition between the two.

  • I may wrong, but I thought QA is the place to send modern coins to? (And that’s the main difference between the two companies?)

    I value the QA Check Sticker,,,,,, so much in fact I just sent 40 more coins to them today for evaluation.

    Those guys have as good of an eye (or better) as anyone in the other stickering services.

    Thank you, this I wanted to know. CAC have more marketing no doubt. But who has more expertise. By fact the CAC and CACG do not have any world class grader as PCGS for moment. I have no data for QA. The only recognised world grader for moment are 2 at ANACS and 1 at NGC. So who it is behind the QA?? The CAC and CACG we know.

    James Sego. Good reputation, knows his stuff. He was the big Ike guy at one time. Perhaps he still is, but he deals with much more than just Ikes. His display cases aren't full of stuff with his stickers on it, unlike a couple other dealers that have recently started issuing stickers, primarily to themselves.

    I want to make sure I understood you correctly. Did you mean to state that CAC and CACG don’t have world class graders like PCGS does?

    Thanks to all who helped me to see more clear. Yes I wanted to reffere also to the antic coins (mean world coins) because on my work in forensic, our customers want as to send for grading and also stikering.

    Appreciate all inputs.
