MAC PRICE GUIDES

All Modern Coins 1940-Present

MAC – will apply to all modern issue coins, similar to the way CAC pertains to traditional coins. If your coin is MACABLE it means you have a modern coin of “PQ”- premium quality.

For example, a coin certified as MS-67 that has exceptional characteristics for its grade would be designated MS-67 MAC. That coin can then sell for more than the value of the coin itself and its POP – from 120% to up to ten times its value without the MAC designation.

GRADE ENHANCEMENTS

All Traditional Coins 1792-1940

GE – GRADE ENHANCEMENTS– This refers to valuing a coin by taking into consideration features that may not have been considered previously.
For example, in the 1953 mintage, a tiny fraction of the Jefferson nickels have full steps, due to poor die quality that year. A 1953-S Full Step Jefferson nickel in MS-66 sells for $35,000.00 due to its rarity. The vast majority of the 1953-S nickels have no steps, and sell for around $150. However, there are a few 1953-S nickels that have 4 steps, and those should be designated as such and valued accordingly.
