PCGS became the industry standard for coin grading and authentication by providing maximum value, security, and liquidity for collectible coins. We are excited to extend this to our banknote grading service. An added benefit of PCGS grading is the peace of mind provided by our PCGS Guarantee of Grade & Authenticity. This cash-back warranty policy ensures the accuracy of the grade assigned to any PCGS-graded item, as long as it remains in its tamper-evident PCGS holder.
