PCGS is pleased to introduce our new Online Photograde Service, which is destined to revolutionize the coin collecting experience.
Initially consisting of representative grades for 25 popular coin series ranging from cents to double eagles, Photograde will be expanded to include many more series and many more grades (this will be a subscription-based offering). While Photograde is no substitute for grading by PCGS experts, even a novice collector can use it obtain an approximate grade of his/her coin by comparing it to the photo that most closely matches the condition (and grade) of their coin. With that information in hand, the collector can go to the PCGS Price Guide to get a ballpark idea of how much the coin is worth.
PCGS Online Photograde is one of the most useful tools ever developed for determining coin values.
