Seems to me they are undergrading alot of coins. All the new coins I have seen on here and coins I just got graded-it seems Anacs has been very stingent on the grades. Anyone else?

I've seen thousands of ANACS and bought and sold a few hundred. With the possible exception of their old small white capsules, they are usually a half grade to two grades above PCGS and NGC.

That said, you might RARELY find one under graded, but not often.

It is more likely that you have what I call Mine Mind.

Mine Mind means that every coin you own suddenly seems that it is better than it really is.

When folks complain about to strict of submission results, it is more frequently Mine Mind.

Show us photos to prove your theory, otherwise.

There used to be many complaints about coins over-graded by ANACS. It seems they may have adjusted back to pre-gradeflation.

Photos of the "undergraded" coins, please. ANACS is usually accurate or overgraded. Rarely undergraded.

I heard they used to overgrade or be accurate but I think they went the other way.

Pictures of the undergraded coin/s, please. Otherwise, I don't know what you are referring to.

Basebal21 will likely see this and I will defer to him. I'm impressed with his knowledge of the TPGs.

With that said, I'd like to think that I know what I'm doing a little bit and I bought my first ANACS graded coin in years just recently. It was a freshly graded 20˘. I had no complaints with the grade they gave it.

Pick a couple of your ANACS coins, crack them out and ship them to NGC or PCGS.
That will perhaps change your opinion.
Maybe your grading would change.

Unfortunately it would be an expensive experiment.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

I agree that recently ANACS is conservative in their grades. IOW, don't ecpect them to do you any favors with the grades, when you use their grading specials. That being said, I don't think they undergrade coins, just more accurately.

.....on any given day..any of the TPG's WILL over, under, completely miss, and get it right.


I have specifically purchased coins in ALL TPG holders, because they were undergraded. Some, I cracked and submitted to the same or different TPG. Most recent - 1909 S Lincoln graded AU58. Graded MS64.

The "grading" or "crackout" game is alive and well, some dealers and collectors have sent the same coin multiple times, to the same TPG in the attempt to get the "correct" grade.
