Prices for plus grades have been added to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation U.S. Coin Price Guide.
The firm says that with the addition of plus grade pricing, users can find 149,000 values for over 6,000 U.S. coins.
This information is available on firm’s website, NGCcoin.com, under the “NGC Research” menu and the NGC Mobile website, m.NGCcoin.com.
Prices are independently compiled and edited by NumisMedia. They are based on actual, documented transactions, NGC said.
With the April 2013 update, the NGC US Coin Price Guide now includes more than 50,000 values for plus grades.
“This is an important step in our continuing mission to provide collectors and dealers with the tools needed to make informed buying and selling decisions,” says Mark Salzberg, NGC chairman.
“We believe that education is key, and we constantly strive to provide more independent, valuable information at the touch of your fingertips for free,” he added.
NGC introduced the plus designation on May 25, 2010, for United States coins dated 1792 to 1964 with any grade from XF-45 to MS-68. The + symbol had been used by collectors and dealers for many years prior to that time to denote a coin that was considered premium-quality for the grade.
