NGC, PCGS, and coins in China
« on: November 11, 2012, 08:26:32 AM »
The major coin grading agencies have recently increased their focus on courting the Chinese coin market in Asia.

I have a question for individuals who have been attending the Asian coin shows for a while.  Perhaps you can provide a viewpoint that is independent from coinweek/NGC/PCGS.  What proportion of the coins at the China coin shows are graded now, and how is this different from a few years ago?  How has the price premium for a graded coin versus an OMP changed in China?  What proportion of collectors in China are currently comfortable with coins slabbed by NGC/PCGS?  How quickly is sentiment changing?
