Don't Throw Your Money Away, Consider CAC

Recently, our Chief Numismatist, Warren Mills was looking through the inventory of a nationally recognized dealer.  While looking through his coins, the dealer asked Warren what percentage of RCNH coins CAC’d.  Warren told him that we had about an 80% success rate. The dealer then told Warren that he recently bought a deal of old RCNH coins, sent them to CAC and made thousands of extra dollars even though not all of the coins CAC’d.  Warren congratulated him and the fa...

Summer 2019
