    Everybody seemed to want to be on the band wagon at one time;



    http://coinauctionshelp.com/NCI.html#.VtBuUXnVw-4



    Numismatic Certification Institute (NCI)



    The second of the three major services is the Numismatic Certification Institute (NCI), an affiliate of Heritage Capital Corporation. Founded in 1984, NCI espouses the grading philosophy of Jim Halperin, set forth in The NCI Grading Guide. It can be characterized as more commercial than that of ANACS, incorporating all factors which the market considers when trading coins, including strike, luster, surface preservation (bagmarks and hairlines) and overall eye appeal (toning). On balance, grades assigned by NCI is usually at the high end of the range of reasonably likely grades.



    NCI is regarded as a very consistent service; two professional coin appraisers grade every coin. Yet, the prices for NCI certified coins reported in the Certified Coin Dealer Newsletter generally run less (sometimes substantially less) than prices for the two other certification services. This is attributable to several factors. First, is the "high end of the range" grading mentioned earlier, which places many NCI coins on the liberal side when viewed by some other dealers. In the 1879 dollar example referred to above, over three-quarters of the dealers examining the coin would have graded it only MS-63 or MS-64, rather than MS-65. Second, is the nature of the prices reported by the Certified Coin Dealer Newsletter They are intended to be "sight-unseen" bids, or the price of a "low-end" example for a given grade.



    The actual trading range for NCI coins is quite wide, and given the opportunity to examine the coins prior to purchase, many dealers will pay prices well in excess of those listed on the Certified Coin Dealer Newsletter. Occasionally, NCI coins may even bring prices commensurate with those of ANACS or PCGS. This is the exception rather than the rule, however, and collectors purchasing average quality NCI coins should usually expect to pay considerably less than they would for a similarly graded PCGS or recently graded ANACS coin.

    Seller's remorse on this coin. Like so many, I hate I ever let it go.

    There was a collector across the street named JJ(not forum name) that was working on as complete a collection of these certificates as possible, but I don't know if he still has them or is working on them.

    Here is a few of mine.

    Some of the different type of certs that were issued over the years.

    The holders were purchased from Capital Plastice and are still available today.

    This type 3 cert was issued with out a grade and was only authenticated. Grading did cost $5.00 more at the time. Maybe the owner had thought it might be a proof but was unsure. I know that it is not proof. but is the earliest cert I own.

    This Flying Eagle was later PCGS graded as MS-65 in the late 1980's and worthy of it.

    Help! Got a last minute article assignment for COINage Magazine about the early days of ANACS, and need some high-resolution images of photo certificates I can use with permission. Any type, but preferably with grading. If you can provide anything please email to me at the address on my profile with a note as to how you want the photo credit to read!
