In 2007, John Albanese partnered with twenty-two leading members of the numismatic community to create the Certified Acceptance Corporation. CAC accepted coins grading by other companies and certified top quality examples with a green or gold sticker. These stickers have become universally recognized as the highest standard attainable for certified coins.
Fifteen years later, John Albanese assembled over 150 leading members of the numismatic community with a purpose to reclaim accuracy and consistency in grading. After all, why merely sticker a previously certified coin when the same stringent standards can be applied within the context of a grading service? Thus, CAC Grading was born!
Boasting a team of world-class graders including Ron Drzewucki and John Butler, among others, CAC is committed to applying an unparalleled level of expertise to every submitted coin. Moreover, Albanese presides over the finalization process of every coin himself to ensure accuracy and consistency throughout the entire grading process.
