Submit Coins To CAC
Grading is not a perfect science. Its subjective in a way. Sometimes people feel that grading companies get it right, other times no. The Certified Acceptance Corporation stepped in to help regulate this and provide a third party opinion. This is not just any opinion, as its founder John Albanese is considered to be one of the top graders of American Coins of all time. Albanese himself has to approve every CAC coin for its grade. Nowadays CAC has become like a plus grade on a coin as CAC coins tend to go for a premium compared to a non CAC coin of the same grade.

Vegas Coin Dealer, LLC is a submitting member of CAC, so we can submit coins on behalf of our clients for that little green or gold sticker. If you feel you have coins that are CAC quality you can reach out to us in order to start the process of submitting your coins.
Not every graded coin is a CAC coin. The reasons vary. But we will do our best to help you determine if your coins are prospects for a CAC sticker.
The Green Sticker (CAC) means your coin is considered quality for the grade. A gold sticker is considered exceptional for the grade. For more information, please refer to the CAC Website
