WFM Suspension Spurs Grading Event

The American Numismatic Association announced June 17 that its 2020 World’s Fair of Money is suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions. The show was scheduled to be held Aug. 4-8 in Pittsburgh, Pa.

While collectors and dealers will miss this much-anticipated annual event, they can now look forward to a special grading event from the ANA’s official grading service, Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

NGC’s ANA Official Grading Service Event will be open to collectors and dealers from July 27 to Aug 7. During this time, NGC will apply a 20 percent discount to all submissions received under its Unlimited Value WalkThrough, WalkThrough, Express, Early Bird/Standard, Specialty Gold, Gold, and Economy grading tiers at its Sarasota, Fla., headquarters. Elite NGC Collectors Society members and NGC Authorized Dealers will receive their usual discount on top of the special 20 percent discount.

Submissions for NGC’s ANA Official Grading Service Event must be received by mail directly to its Sarasota office between July 27 and Aug. 7 to be eligible for the special discount.
