    huh?

    What is a PCGS CACG+? Are you talking about stickers? To avoid confusion, we usually say CAC for stickers and CACG for slabs.

    If you are talking about stickers, you are not going to see any change in the stickers. They want to phase them out not create more options.

    If you are talking about the slabbing company, I don't know what a PCGS CACG is. You can't have both slabs simultaneously...unless CACG starts slabbing PCGS slabs in their entirety. [You're going to need a bigger box.]

    I read this thread and don't get it. Maybe it's me.
    Or it could possibly need more of an explanation.

    That's true 50% of the time around here...

    I think that he wants to know whether CACG uses a + or a star for plus grades? I really don't know. :grey_question::grey_question::grey_question:

    CACG already uses plus grades (not star grades) and I don't think that will change.

    I’m asking who (I’m guessing PCGS) will sticker CACG coins w/a sticker on top of it with a CACG+. A star works too.

    This still doesn't make sense. Why would PCGS put a CACG+ sticker on it?

    I was under the assumption of CACG has NOT assigned a + or * in their slabs. If that already has been done, ignore my post.

    If not PCGS can gain additional revenue by adding either + or * to CACG slabs or even a - to them.

    To take it a step further add a gold symbol star sticker (with PCGS) logo inside it.

    If PCGS started a stickering service for NGC and CACG slabbed coins that meet their quality standards, it would be an excellent source of additional revenue without much additional start-up cost. Those coins that qualify for the coveted PCGS sticker would be allowed to be included in the PCGS registry.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Where is the disagree button when you need it.

    No need for a disagree button. State your case with just the facts.

    Pretty sure it’ll be cactus Plus and not cactus Star as well. Stars rarely reach PCGS status let alone cactusus statuses.
