Yes we can, grading is a fundamental part of the coin business.

We also pre-grade items you might want to send out to the grading services but we don’t put them in the grading service holders. You still need to send them to the grading service for that to be done.

Should I clean my coins?

Never clean your old coins.

Cleaning coins will always lower the value.

Are old coins worth more than newer coins?

Age does not make a coin valuable. Condition, the number minted and popularity are the key factors to value.

For example, some coins from the 1970s are worth more than coins from the 1830s.

Other coins that are thousands of years old can be worth less than ten dollars.
