In 2007, John Albanese partnered with twenty-two leading members of the numismatic community to create Certified Acceptance Corporation. Their mission was to advocate for the hobbyist by establishing an extremely stringent standard of grading. As a verifier of previously certified coins, CAC only recognizes coins that meet the highest standard. Of all the coins submitted to CAC over the years, less than half have received the honorable CAC sticker.
Since making its debut, the CAC sticker has become universally recognized as the highest standard attainable for certified coins. As a result, the CAC sticker serves as an unmistakable means of identifying premium coins for the grade.
In 2022, John Albanese felt the need to leverage the CAC brand even further, assembling over one hundred and fifty leading members of the numismatic community 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, John Albanese will be presiding over the finalization process to ensure accuracy and consistency throughout the entire grading process.
