Re: American Grading Companies' use of "PL"

The use of PL by Canadian companies is as mentioned by la cenne now as described above, FOR NEWER COINS. If you are looking at an older coin, the PL nomenclature still applies.

US grading companies use different wording, and some, such as ANACS have changed a number of times, just as the ownership of this company. Some old small holder ANACS coins can be nice surprises, occasionally bumping up a grade no matter the TPG service used. As always, looking at the coin in person is beneficial in making this evaluation.

In my opinion, buying certified newer coins, say in the last 20 years, is pretty much a crap shoot. There are huge numbers of these coins out there, and with a few exceptions, most remain uncertified.
