The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) has announced major initiatives in India, the world’s second-most populous country with more than 1.3 billion people. CCG’s independent member companies include Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS) and Paper Money Guaranty (PMG).
CCG has appointed Peacock Bloom Numismatic LLP (Peacock Bloom) an Official Submission Center to NGC, NCS, and PMG in India. As an Official Submission Center in India, Peacock Bloom will assist collectors and dealers with submissions to NGC, NCS, and PMG. Peacock Bloom can also answer questions about the services and benefits of NGC, NCS, and PMG.
NGC and PMG provide third-party authentication, grading and encapsulation services for collectible coins and paper money, respectively. Each company is a leader in its category. NGC has certified more than 43 million coins since 1987, while PMG has certified nearly 4 million notes since 2005. NCS is a respected professional coin conservation service that has handled more than 1 million coins since 2001.
In another effort, PMG will conduct an on-site grading event in Chennai, India, June 10–15, 2019.
