over the last 10 years $20 gold coins in ms-64 -67 have decreased in value. over grading or loose grading is a softer way of putting it, has resulted in a $5 indian in ms-65 going from $20,000.00 to $9000.00 why because pcgs and ngc have relaxed the standards of what a ms-65 is. a real ms -65 $5 indian is still a very rare coin.. but a lot of coins in pcgs and ngc holders are very low end for the grade they are marked. and some are a grade or even two lower if one uses tight grading standards. price will follow the quality that the grading companies put in a holder.. for instance why is there very little difference in a ms-64 st guadens and a ms-60 because there is very little diffence in the quality of coin in a ms-64 holder. gradeflation is a big problem and will make most common coin values continue to decrease . for this reason we recommend selling u.s. gold coins in pcgs or ngc holders. please call for an appointment so we can evaluate your holdings. 1-800-953-3027
