After shutting down at the first of March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ANACS has announced that they have reopened and are grading coins once again. The oldest coin grading company in the United States, ANACS was closed on April 1 to comply with Colorado pandemic response restrictions.
As of last Monday, May 11th, we resumed business for the first time since late March. While we continuously collected and secured daily mail and deliveries, this was the first significant closure in our 48-year history.
We have spent the last week retooling our procedures, prioritizing aging submissions, logging new orders that arrived during the closure, and shipping completed ones.
Many of you will receive your coins this week. Others will not have to wait too much longer.
As we continue to learn best practices under the rules set by the State of Colorado, you should expect some changes in our operations and service. These may result in some general delays. Also, sorry to our local dealers & collectors, but our lobby will remain closed for now.
Lastly, we want to thank our loyal customers and ANACS Insiders for all the support and good will you have sent our way. We intend to keep your trust and thank you for your patience.
Now let’s go grade some coins!!!
While the announcement indicates there could be some delays in getting coins graded and return, there is no indication on how much of a delay is happening. Like PCGS, who also closed down, those who submit coins to be graded should expect some delay in their return.
