How much does a CAC sticker increase the value on coins based on your experience?

Any replays welcome. Also what premium does a PCGS holder command over an NGC holder if two coins were offered sight unseen with the same date and grade?

    Likely the most general response to such a broad-based question would be to say that a coin with a CAC sticker may have more liquidity than the same coin without and a coin in a PCGS holder may have more liquidity than the same coin in an NGC holder.

    Common coins, I agree, easier to sell, more liquid. Usually no magic unless you have super high end or special coins, like rare gold ones in old holder PCGS.

    I agree with roadrunner too. PCGS vs NGC in my view is strictly about the coin inside. Selling on a place like E-Bay seems to afford no added value either way anymore.

    For now, there is value added, especially in the coin auctions sector. If CAC sharply cuts back on purchases from non-CAC members, liquidity of coins with CAC beans will likely decrease. If CAC dissolves (as numismatic businesses inevitably do), the value of the CAC bean will be ????? The long-term value of CAC stickers depends very much on future decisions by the two major TPGs.

    As others have mentioned, CAC stickers might help with liquidity as there are some buyers who feel they only want coins that are stickered already.

    But when it comes to value, I don't think CAC stickers increase the value of the coins at all. Sure, you see some really nice coins with CAC stickers that sell for really high prices, but really nice coins are going to sell for high prices w/o those stickers as well.

    I have seen CAC stickers decrease values though when you're looking at early PCGS and NGC holders. Think of the NGC black holders, NGC all white holders, PCGS rattlers and PCGS doily holders... if you get a green CAC sticker on any of those it removes the hope of many prospective buyers that they could get easy upgrades of those coins. Having no sticker at all on those coins makes them sell for more in most cases than having a green CAC sticker as prospective buyers will think of the possibility of getting a gold CAC sticker and/or regrading/upgrading those coins.

    I've been watching a certain grade and "era" of circulated seated dollars. I've concluded that CAC stickers make a significant difference for this specific subset. Makes me want to sell a few of these to capitalize.

    I agree with above statements, with very common every day stuff, not much value added.

    But nicer higher grade better dates or higher end type, it makes a difference on the offers you receive. And in auction results as mentioned above I'm sure. I have a few 4 & 5 figure coins I am moving around a little , a few with stickers, and a few with out, all are actually quite nice for the grade. From some of the national dealers, on the coins with no stickers, I am getting the push back about the coin not having a sticker, and their buy offers being greatly reduced because of it(irregardless of the quality of the coin), and so forth. One or two of these coins, I actually sold the CAC coin and purchased another one that was clearly better not only to my eyes. but many others widely respected in the industry, some which post here. And the comments I am being told is: coins not cac, cant offer as strong) or a cac coin in that grade brought, x, so I am going to have to offer x minus a good bit on yours, etc.

    If I don't like coin moot issue.

    If I buy a cac coin my asking price part of cost plus markup equation.

    I can see where someone might demand cac sticker on $5000 coin but (1) Cac coins very small pct of coins on eBay, (2) a sticker does not prevent coins reaction with atmospher or halt the chemical process of toning, and (3) many do not do big ticket coins for a sticker to be even revelant. Some of my recent slabbed pickups key coins under $200: 1934-S XF45 Dollar, 1913 G06 Half, some key date Barber Quarters VG-VF, some key date Mercury Dimes VF to AU. I retail these kinds of coins all the time both online and at shows / collectors want to fill holes.

    Based on extensive spreadsheet analysis of dealer asking prices I would say 15 percent good ballpark number but his ca vary wildly across the board for individual coins.

    In 2011 w the gold run up I sold off all my USGTC holdings and have replaced with modern US and World Gold (all slabbed) so CAC is not even an issue w these as I am mainly a bulk accumulator seeking material close to melt. The exception may be some Mexico 50P pieces I have in MS63 and above so scarce and tough to locate the sticker issue not part of that market (don't believe CAC stickers this material anyhow).

    There is a difference between a coin that did not receive a CAC sticker and a coin that was not submitted to CAC. That 55-O without the CAC sticker was part of a large consignment that appeared to contain many older holdered coins that did not have CAC stickers. Bidders that looked at both coins liked the one without the CAC sticker vs the newer holdered CAC stickered one.

    In general CAC stickered coins bring more money because it encourages more bidders to bid. Especially bidders that are bidding online based only on a photo. They are getting a respected third parties opinion that the coin is solid for the assigned grade.

    Black NGC holders? What do those make up, 0.0002% of the coin market? Same for the doilies. And finding "fresh," PQ old NGC fatties and PCGS rattlers is another very tiny subset of the slabbed population. Now let's consider CAC's effect on the other 99% of the 30+ MILL potential slabbed population. Over 90% of those early holders where the coin's were really nice for the grade have been upgraded already. Even the current population of gold CAC's is probably less than 1% of all stickered coins. Gold CAC sticker-makers really don't factor into what the other 99% of the market is doing....and can ignore this thread.

    For the typical collector running into rattlers at coin shows, those are more likely to be unfresh coins tried already, not that nice for that grade (lower eye appeal) or not worth the $10-$20 to send in. In the case of rattlers worth over $300-500 or more, I'd prefer having a green sticker on them to at least ensure I'm not overlooking a trap coin.

    On coins I have sold, which were typically bust/seated silver pieces averaging $200 to $400, approximately 10% to 15%. This is an estimate of course. The $15 average S&H+fees to have my coins "CAC'd" has been well worthwhile for education, value & enjoyment.

    On a gold coin like a $20 Saint I may pay a slight premium if it's CAC and meets my standards as an A coin but not on the BV portion so it's important to me to break out numismatic value vs BV. B coins my offer no premium for CAC - pay a premium for coin average for grade? Your kidding right? C coins no offer period.

    I was offered one rather dark toned coin at a show, CAC coin. The rim area on the reverse really black - I wondered if it simply had gotten worse in the holder after getting a sticker (around a $2500 MV coin if up to par). I told the guy no interest and it needed a conservation / restoration service. It was a real dog.

    In that scenario, I think you are correct that those with the stickers probably will sell for more... all else being equal. In that case, most buyers looking at that group would assume that all were submitted to CAC for review and those w/o stickers had failed the review.

    You can see this sometimes when major collections are auctioned. If most of the collection has CAC stickers, the bidders know those without were also likely submitted and failed CAC review. That's why you sometimes see major collections going to auction w/o any CAC stickers as they don't want those without stickers being singled out.

    I just had the same experience on a 1795 VF 30 PCGS graded Flowing Hair Dollar. I needed a loop just to make out the date even though the coin was a PCGS 30. It was very dark and would have been a coin I wanted to upgrade at some point. Buying it makes no sense. Not CAC but it was hard on the eye and I buy the coin and the holder is just that a holder for the coin. If the coin had a CAC sticker my decision would have been the same.

    I wonder why the seller did not send the better more accurately graded coin in for a sticker. It seems when a person is selling coins like this they would try to maximize what they get. I would have paid more for the non CAC coin as it was a superior coin. Frankly I could not figure out how the other coin get a green sticker. I collect type one New Orleans DEs and stick with AU. My procurement is slow for two reasons money and finding a nice coin priced right. I see very few CAC stickers on the tougher dates. I am just starting a 18th early dollar collection and do see more CAC stickers but don't mind buying a coin without one if is a nice piece. Based on what I read the early dollars PCGS CAC should bring 10 to 15% more as a rule of thumb. When I get Bowers book on these coins I will be more aggressively pursuing them. I did get a 1798 pcgs 40 that is a nice coin and CAC approved. I will post it soon. Cost was $4,500, which I thought was very fair.

    You first need a buyer that will pay the extra money. Initially thought wb tough but some pleasant surprises.

    Pricing CAC coins a subjective issue. Some have gone what 2-3 times the non cac?

    Beyond that I refer to my cdn app which has CAC bids / cpg on many issues. However cost plus trumps all.

    I had an 1880-S Ms 64 dollar I priced at $120 I paid GC $85 for awhile back. It was a very beautiful coin. Show customers backed off but an online buyer purchased it. I simply just marked it up cost plus. I don’t think there is much of a premium in ms64 in the sheet but don’t care the coin had more eye appeal than a lot 65’s.

    Let’s say you have a CAC 66 Franklin. The sheet does not have bids for these but does for 81-s dollars - just use that (for grade 66) or cost plus.

    It’s a moot issue if I don’t like the coin. If coin not A or B per my standards, a no go. If I like the coin then then would use the CAC bid in cdn as reference. Generally my bid 90 pct cdn less allowance for juice. Or just input bluesheet as max bid keep it simple.

    For material where numismatic value 300 or less a moot issue unless of course CAC bid on cdn.

    If in doubt add 15 pct to markup equation in pricing for sell.

    I rescently won a CAC coin for $82 where it’s CAC bid is 100 and CAC sell is 130. I priced it at $135 for online store. It is very lustrous and onice for issue I would say at least a B coin.

    No, as there’s still no one-size-fits-all answer. It depends on the coin type, date and grade.
    For some coins, the increase in value is quite minimal, while in others, it can be huge.

    I've recently been looking at $20 Saints and I can state unequivocally that the CAC stickered coins bring more competition to the auction. I've been the #2 bidder a couple of times over the last week on several really nice (and stickered) coins... but is that because the coins were really nice for the grade or just because they were stickered.

    I suspect some believe my prior reply to this thread to be blunt and even rude. So I am taking this opportunity to raise what might be reasonable questions and issues worthy of consideration as to premiums and valuations.

    One must understand and appreciate that coins within a series are simply not created equal as there is often a range in quality between dates and mints. And this can lead to what can easily be a significant challenge to grade coins and grade them accurately. Further it is important to understand the grading spectrum and even the spectrum within a single grade. Not all MS65 coins are alike.

    So the important questions are what makes this an "A" coin or even something special within a specific grade?
    -Quality of the strike and how does that compare to other surviving coins at this grade level?
    -What do the high points and surfaces tell you?
    -Was the coin enhanced to bring out luster at the expense of compromising original surfaces?
    -What does the surviving population look like for this coin? And perhaps even more importantly what is the surviving population for a coin with this look and how often is it available?

    Premiums are generated at the time of sale based on who is or how a coin is being sold. The sale... whether it be at auction ... captures the value at that moment by the buyer/seller or auction participants.

    So the question about the premium is really is badly misplaced. Instead the important questions are about the coin and understanding what makes it special and where the coin stands in contrast to others at the same grade level. Any premium will likely be created by the perception of the coin in contrast to others. There are some coins that simply have an abundant supply in various grades. And just because a coin has a sticker, it may simply not resonate that well among the surviving population to justify the premium a seller might be seeking. Think of enhanced "No Motto" Gold with a sticker whereby the surfaces were enhanced in contrast to one that has original surfaces with no sticker. The surviving population of the original coin will likely attract more interest and a greater premium.
