CAC (Certified Acceptance Corporation) is the only 3rd party authentication service that looks for "solid for the grade" coins. These coins typically bring 15-35% more than "average" quality coins.
CAC also designates "exceedes quality standards for the grade. These coins receive a gold sticker, and typically trade at price levels of one grade higher than the actual grade on the coin. Sometimes prices exceed that of the next price level as well.
This astoundingly beautiful proof 1904 is one of only three graded at this level by PCGS with none finer. Purchased from the mint by Mercer when issued (he tried to corner the market), this coin was first sold at auction on May 2, 1931 in the Barnet, Mercer, Broadford and Zolotzeff collection.

This is one of the great rarities of 20th century gold coins. Lovely original Near Gem. A paltry `164,000 were minted and of those only 47 have been graded by PCGS in MS63 with just 10 and MS64 and two in MS64+ None Finer!! A special opportunity for an advanced gold collector. CAC Approved!

CAC Approved! This is one of the more attractive Ikes in 66+ that we have handled. The upper rim areas on both sides have rainbow-like toning while the central areas show light pastels, especially the reverse. Excellent eye appeal.

CAC Approved! In Premium GEM and higher, this date is quite scarce. This coin has light gold toning on the obverse, while the reverse has gun-metal blue toning by the rims and the central areas are gold. A beautiful coin.
