PCGS, NGC will bring higher sale prices. Most dealers i talk to or buy from. say the other Grading companies command less. When they buy them they will pay less for them. ANACS,PCI,SEGS, etc. Really even if graded and slabbed you should always buy the coin not the holder.

PCGS or NGC. Anyone else is second tier at best.

fyi, PCGS is part of the same company as PSA. But as the others have said, PCGS and NGC are the two best companies.

If you would have waited a month you could have saved a few bucks but it is still a nice coin. They are WAY overdoing the grading thing as each year more and more 70's are churned out of the graders

Word of advice: Don't buy new coins that are 70's, there's very little room for the values to move up after the high initial price. If you find old coins that are High Grades, you've got a much rarer coin.

As Smackvay mentioned, 70's are a lot more common than they used to be.

PS - I would like to also echo JJ53, do not fall in love with a grade, buy the coin because it is visually appealing, not because it is in nice shape.
