Frequently described in recent months as "The Big One" by PCGS Co-Founder and Collectors Universe President, David Hall, the revelation will be made at 10:30 a.m. in Room 108 of the Fort Worth, Texas Convention Center. The public is invited to attend the announcement and demonstrations to be made by Hall and PCGS President Don Willis on opening day of the American Numismatic Association National Money Show™.
"We will unveil the ‘next step, the new way, The Big One,’ and it’s going to change coin grading for the better," said Hall who has been offering tantalizing hints about the new PCGS service since last fall.
"We believe this will totally revolutionize the coin grading business," Willis added. "When PCGS first started grading coins in 1986, it was the most significant development ever for the protection of the coin collecting public. We will unveil the next giant step in further protecting the consumer."
Detailed information will be posted on the PCGS web site at about noon, Central Time, on March 25.
A special display showcasing coins from the BRS Legacy Collection of Indian Head Eagles will be exhibited at the PCGS booth, #604, during the show. "This collection ranks as one of the finest, if not the finest, sets of Indian $10 gold ever assembled, and this will be the first time it’s ever been exhibited," said Willis.
PCGS will offer on-site authentication and grading services at the ANA National Money Show. The three-day event is open to the public, March 25 – 27, at the Fort Worth Convention Center, 1201 Houston St.
