I have two Casascius coins (a 1BTC and 0.5BTC) I really want to get graded and slabbed. Surprisingly, ANACs offers this service. I work at a coin shop-there are GENERALLY 2 companies we will buy graded coins from/send coins to get graded by-NGC or PCGS. Although, we WILL buy ANACs-graded coins if they're a desirable one. So, it is a grading company that can be respected. Any other grading services (ICG, NNC, etc) are just there to take your money. We don't touch a coin in one of those slabs. "Under-cover" experiments have led to these companies grading fake coins, grading a coin WAY higher than it was graded by either NGC or PCGS.

Anyways, I'm surprised a company of esteem in the numismatic world will grade Casascius coins. If you send 1 or 2 of your coins away for grading, you pay a hefty price for grading and for return shipping. However, if you send a minimum of 5 coins it costs $10/coin (as opposed to $19 for the "Economy" option if you send 1 coin). Also, return shipping is $12 (I BELIEVE total, not per coin). You guys can check all that out here:

So, I am just looking for at least 3 people who want to get their Casascius coins graded. You would need to get your coin to me and include a pre-paid envelope/package for me to send them back to you in. I cannot afford to accept Bitcoins only for this, I have a PayPal verified account-I think that would be the safest way to do payment. We can work all that out if you are interested.

As far as trust goes, I have been on here for a LONG time, done tons of trades, escrow for several transactions, and have plenty of seasoned users who could vouch for me. I'm just in this to pay as little as possible to get my coins graded.

Please PM me if interested. This is what your coin would look like slabbed and graded:
