Grading is simply a ranking of you coins under their value and condition which are done by authorized third party companies.
There were different questions regarding the value and condition of any coins.
Therefore with the group of appraisal institutions grading systems were created to solve those problems.
There are more than 20 appraisal institutions (companies) around the world, mainly in the United States.
Among them, “NGC” and “PCGS” are particularly famous.
These two companies have occupied an overwhelming market share since their founding, and have gained tremendous support from numerous collectors and specialty stores.
Both companies have a vast amount of knowledge about coins, and are characterized by adopting a quantitative evaluation method (70-point evaluation).
I think most people ask NGC or PCGS for appraisal, but there are two patterns for grading: directly requesting the appraisal company or requesting it through an agency.
Once graded, the coins are returned in a slab holder with hologram stickers.
Getting a slab holder and stickers means coin inside the holder is authentic, the with the information of rarity value investigation the objective evaluation have been completed.

The biggest advantage of grading is their authentication and ranking.
For Rare antique coins their value gets increased from hundreds of thousands of yen to over millions of yen.

However, in the case of coins that have been graded, the value are clearly determined.
This is great news for those who are inexperienced collectors and cannot judge product value by themselves.

The grade is given in 20 different code numbers from 50 to 70, at NGC and PCGS, the higher the number, the better the condition.
In addition, letters may appear before numbers, which indicates the coin's condition.
FDC＝Perfect Completely Unused
AU/UNC＝Pure Unused Item
