PCGS/Varieties

VeepVeep Posts: 1,401 ✭✭✭✭
When submitting type coin varieties, should I use the generic coin # and list the variety on the submission form? There are no special numbers for varieties. Do they recognize 2c, 3c, and Shield 5c varieties as listed in Breen? THANKS!

    as a general rule the varieties PCGS recognizes are the ones listed in the Redbook.

    Would NGC be a better choice? Do they recognize more of them?

    ANACS would be my first choice followed by NGC.

    Thanks, Keets.

    By the way, those counterstamped Clevelands are really interesting. The one on the left is stunning! image

    I agree for the coins mentioned. For more expensive varieties I would go to NGC first.
    I collect Capped Bust series by variety in PCGS AU/MS grades.
  • New to this thread and looking for some direction. Generally speaking where is the best place to find info on the Varieties that are listed on PCGS? I have a bunch of silver washington quarters and it seems like every one has a variety listed but very few of the PCGS images actually show exactly what to look for to ID the variety. My main group is morgans so I am looking at vamworld for those but what about other types not shown in detail on PCGS? thoughts?

    Sup. Morgans are cool - So are Ducatis.

    With many more and exclusions.
    This is a link to PCGS submission page and if you drill down you will arrive at a list of varieties they attribute. Must click on blue link that is "Variety Attribution".

    i usually check the pop report or price guide. click the little + to expand the varieties section.

    you can talk to @messydesk as he has the go-to service for attributing vams. he has options for stickers and/or submissions.
