    Hi everyone.

    New to the forum so apologies if someone has previously addressed this.

    Why have many Australian coin dealers removed any reference to offering a PCGS coin grading service from their websites? This includes Melbourne Mint who advertise extensively, including in the latest Renniks issue. Previously existing pages on agents websites advertising grading services now display as “page not found”. I contacted MM this week about getting a few pre decimal proof coins valued and slabbed with no response.

    PCGS website in the states has now removed references to Australian agents. And their fees seem to have increased significantly.

    Is this the death of PCGS in Australia? NGC rubbing their hands together?
