Collectors Universe, Inc., has appointed Ron Guth as president of its Professional Coin Grading Service division.
PCGS founder, David Hall, who held the dual role of president of both the publicly held parent company and PCGS, will remain president of Collectors Universe.
The move will allow Hall to maintain an active role with PCGS, while giving him more time to devote to the expansion of Collectors Universe in other areas of the numismatic and collectibles markets, according to a press release from Collectors Universe.
Hall also will continue to oversee other expanding divisions of Collectors Universe, including the recently launched PCGS Currency.
Guth is the creator of the Coin Facts Web site, www.CoinFacts.com, and a numismatic researcher and author. He joined PCGS as director of numismatic research in September 2004. He has been active in adding new PCGS services, such as VAM attributions, the TrueViewSM Photo Service and expanded research archives.
