PCGS Announces Expansion of Photograde™ Online

- February 3, 2010

Photograde™ Online, one of the most talked-about innovations in the coin industry, is now even bigger and better.  Photograde now includes 60 coin series and offers grades ranging from PO1 to MS69 for many of them.  The Apple iPhone™ app has been submitted and will be available soon.

While Photograde is not a substitute for grading by PCGS experts, even a novice collector can use it to obtain an approximate grade of his/her U.S. coin by comparing it to the photo that most closely matches the condition (grade) of their coin.  With that information in hand, the collector can go straight to the PCGS Price Guide to get a ballpark idea of how much the coin is worth when it's PCGS-certified.

The Apple iPhone Photograde app enables collectors and dealers to literally walk through a coin show and instantly bring up crystal-clear PCGS Grading Set photos on their iPhone to compare with coins they see offered for sale.

Simply put, PCGS Photograde is one of the most useful tools ever developed for determining coin values. Grab a coin, and check it out today!
