If you are a subscriber to NGC's site, you have probably already read the very interesting offering they will now me making in regards to eBay listed coins.

I've just read it, so I'll try to give you an idea of what is involved, but if I'm off on a point or two don't shoot me because the entire information package is lengthy.

In fact, I'll try a copy and paste here: Let me know what your opinion might be. I like the idea myself.

Uncertified coins on one of the world's largest and most vibrant marketplaces will have a link to purchase a preliminary review by NGC experts.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) and eBay have partnered to launch NGC Expert Review, a low-cost service that provides a preliminary review of coins by NGC experts. The service is available for coins on eBay that have not been certified by a third-party grading service.

NGC is the world's largest third-party authentication and grading service for collectible coins, tokens and medals. It is an approved grading company of eBay, a leading online marketplace that connects buyers and sellers around the world.


To use this service, eBay buyers should look for the NGC Expert Review link near the bid or buy section on the eBay listing page for an uncertified coin.

NGC Expert Review offers two services for US, world and ancient coins on eBay:

Authenticity Review ($5 per coin): An NGC expert examines the photos from the eBay listing and provides a preliminary opinion of the coin's authenticity. The preliminary opinions of authenticity are: Likely Genuine, Likely Not Genuine or Inconclusive.
Authenticity and Grade Review ($10 per coin): An NGC expert examines the photos from the eBay listing and provides a preliminary opinion of the coin's authenticity and, if it is Likely Genuine, a preliminary opinion on its grade range. For US and world coins, the preliminary opinions of grade range include Likely Low Circulated (1-35), Likely High Circulated (40-58), Likely Uncirculated (60-70), Likely Proof (60-70) or Inconclusive. Similar opinions are given for ancient coins.
NGC will provide the results within two business days. An authenticity opinion of Inconclusive will result in a full refund. A grade of Inconclusive will result in a $5 refund.

To use this service, eBay buyers should look for the NGC Expert Review link near the bid or buy section on the eBay listing page for an uncertified coin.

As an added benefit, NGC will give the person who purchased the NGC Expert Review service a voucher toward NGC's full authentication, grading and encapsulation services. The voucher is equal to the amount paid for the review and is valid for 90 days from the date the NGC Expert Review service was purchased. An Associate or higher NGC Collector membership is required to submit collectibles to NGC for its regular grading services.

"We want every eBay buyer to have confidence that the coin they are purchasing is what they believe it to be, and we are able to reinforce that peace of mind in partnership with NGC," said Mark Flaa, Category Director of Arts & Collectibles at eBay. "This new service is another step in eBay's efforts to ensure the integrity of the items we offer. Our trusted marketplace and wide selection of inventory, coupled with NGC's expertise, makes eBay the ideal destination for those searching for authentic, rare collectibles."

"We are honored to work with eBay to help make it safer, easier and more educational to buy coins in its marketplace," said Mark Salzberg, Chairman of NGC. "This is a great example of how NGC has leveraged technology to launch a new service that benefits the hobby."

Similar Expert Review services are being offered on eBay by two NGC affiliates: Paper Money Guaranty® (PMG®), for ungraded banknotes, and Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), for comic books.

I would guess there will be a lot of inconclusive results. Lots of bad pictures and lighting.

I do like the idea.

This could come in handy for purchasing raw ancients off of eBay. Relatively few are certified, and it would be nice to have experts look at the listing pics. Currently, I purchase only certified ancients (even though they are not guaranteed authentic), and this service could open up a lot more coins for purchase.

Also, I'd like to see a service where you (as an NGC member) could post coin photos to an NGC website and get the same preliminary opinion. You wouldn't need two-day turnaround for this service, since the coins won't be sold out from under you. I have a bunch of early US type coins that I got before certification was common, and I am just wondering if they're fakes.
