I know the industry average for getting a CAC sticker on coins is pretty low for most dealers. Recently we heard of a 60 coin submission of which only two coins got stickered. CAC will only affix a sticker to a coin if they feel it is at the high end of the grade spectrum. Then they will affix a small green sticker to the right front of the holder. In very rare cases, if they feel a coin is under graded, they will affix a gold sticker to the holder. The gold sticker means that they feel the grade is 1-point higher than on the current holder and will pay the next grade price for the coin. Recently on a slow day, I picked out of our inventory 18 coins to submit. The submission form is for 20 coins so I picked out a couple of our wholesale coins to fill in the gap. Here are the results:
Both wholesale coins did not CAC. 15 of 16 collector coins received a green sticker and two coins received a gold sticker. So our retail coins actually went 17 for 16. Fifteen green stickers and 2 gold stickers which in essence are like two-pointer upgrades. Not bad at all from a percentage standpoint.
Someday we would love an opportunity to sell you some nice original coins. Please call or e-mail to see the RCNH difference.
