Imagine you are at a coin show standing at a dealers table, or at home bidding in an online auction. You are interested in making a purchase. You have a price guide in your hand, but you're not sure that it's telling you everything you need to know. So you reach in your pocket and pull out your smart phone.
Enter the PCGS number and grade and instantly you have the PCGS Price Guide and PCGS Pop Report.
The same screen displays the last three auction appearances for both PCGS and NGC graded coins. Tap an auction record and actually see a high resolution photo of the coin that sold. All this information on one screen for the grade you are interested in plus one grade higher and lower. And you can tap a button and see prices or pops for all grades of the coin.
Or you can tap another button and see the last 25 times the coin has appeared in auction. Of course each auction record has a thumbnail photo and can connect you to all the way to the auction site with another tap.
If you need to do a little research on the coin you can tap on a button to look at rarity ratings, survival estimates and condition census. Or tap on another and get all the detailed information about the coin such as mintage and metrics.
Think the coin may be a variety? Tap on a photo and see varieties enlarged for identification. Click another button and all the known varieties for this coin are presented. Click on any of those and see everything there is to know about that coin.
All this in your pocket and operating at instantaneous speed. Real time response for real time transactions. Anywhere your phone works. 24/7 and Worldwide.
Think about it! You have access to pricing, population, auction prices realized for all grades of the coin you are looking at. The guy selling it has a price guide. Who do you think will get the better deal?
Not just that, whether you are at a dealer's table, sitting in an auction or simply reading an advertisement, all the information you need to know is at your fingertips.
