Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), the world leader in third-party coin grading, announced the opening of a new European branch office in Konstanz, Germany. The new location will address growing demand for NGC’s expert services throughout Europe, while offering coin dealers and collectors a faster, more efficient method to submit coins to NGC’s U.S. headquarters for certification and grading.
"We are very excited about the location in Konstanz and the opportunity to connect with more hobbyists in Europe," said Steve Eichenbaum, NGC CEO. "Offering a straightforward submission process out of Germany will hopefully make a big difference for dealers and collectors throughout the EU. Mostly, we’re looking forward to seeing some beautiful European rarities surface in the coming year."
European dealers and collectors currently rely on NGC’s Switzerland location to submit coins to NGC’s headquarters in Sarasota, Fla., USA. While the current office is reliable, efficient and cost effective for dealers and collectors in Switzerland, the new location will benefit customers in EU member states.
"The new Germany location will no doubt generate excitement throughout the EU member states," said Richard Stein, director of NGC European operations. "NGC grading — not to mention the NGC holder — is in high demand here in Europe, and we’re thrilled to think of the many great World coins we’ll be able to certify. I can’t help but think the auction prices will be impressive, as well, with so many NGC-graded World coins going to market."
NGC brings 25 years of experience certifying and grading collectible coins in the popular and growing numismatic marketplace. The U.S.-based company employs a large staff of full-time coin graders, many of whom are among the most skilled and acclaimed in their field, making NGC the world’s largest third-party coin grading company. The knowledge, integrity and dedication of NGC’s grading team ensure a level of accuracy and consistency unparalleled among grading services, allowing hobbyists around the world to collect with confidence.
