News-Antique.com - Dec 05,2007 - (Santa Ana, California) -- In a move that is expected to significantly boost activity in the already brisk paper money market, the Certified Coin Exchange (CCE) in conjunction with PCGS Currency has established the Currency Marketplace, a new CCE service where collectors can view, select from and buy thousands of bank notes offered by many of the top currency dealers. It is located online at www.CollectorsCorner.com.
"Notes certified by PCGS Currency or PMG as well as un-certified, 'raw' paper money will be available online at Currency Marketplace. It will be THE place for collectors to make purchases with confidence because only CCE members and PCGS Currency Authorized Dealers will be permitted to post items for sale," said Laura Kessler, PCGS Currency Vice President of Business Development.
Paper money now has been added to the CCE Collector's Corner "Wish List" service where collectors are quickly and conveniently notified by e-mail when items they are seeking become available from CCE member-dealers.
"Dealers offering PCGS Currency-graded notes simply enter online the certificate number located on the back of the specially-designed holder, and all the information automatically uploads. Advertising space is available for member dealers on both the Collectors Corner and the PCGS Currency website, offering an easy and inexpensive way to attract new clients," explained Kessler.
CCE is the world's largest, online dealer-to-dealer numismatic network.
"With the opening of the Currency Marketplace, we now have more than 470 coin and currency dealers trading on the CCE network with over 70,000 certified coin and paper money items listed with a combined value in excess of $75 million," said Cassi East, CCE President.
"Based on the initial, positive response from collectors and dealers when we first announced plans for the Currency Marketplace, we believe that adding paper money to the extremely active CCE network undoubtedly will significantly increase the number of currency items easily available for examination and selection by collectors. This will ultimately be the first place for collectors to check for the rare paper money needed for expanding or upgrading their collections."
The Currency Marketplace also will offer numismatic books and hobby supplies for sale.
CCE and PCGS Currency are divisions of Collectors Universe, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLCT).
