ANACS is "America's Oldest Grading Service", located in Englewood, Colorado. The ANACS history starts back in 1972, when it was founded by the American Numismatic Association to be a third party coin grading service. They initially started grading the obverse and reverse as different grades and you still see certificates issued by ANACS with 63/64 as a grade, noting that the obverse was graded MS-63 and reverse was graded MS-64. In today's grading standards at all leading coin grading companies, a single grade is assigned. In 1989, ANACS commenced issuing photo certificates and encapsulating coins in tamper evident holders.
GreatCollections offers ANACS coins in our auctions and for direct sale. In addition, as an ANACS authorized dealer, we offer several services to collectors to have raw coins graded and certified by ANACS.
