Our Grading Philosophy

Lee Bellisario, owner of Bellisario Rare Coin Gallery, was one of the first coin graders at PCGS in 1986, making him a part of what is now a standard in the numismatics hobby – Third Party Grading Service. Over the years, Lee has acquired rare coins from his clients based on more than just a third party numerical grade. Since 1965 he has honed his skills and applied his grading and numismatic knowledge to the rare coins he acquires.

Numerical grading has brought tremendous order to the market place, but rare coins are not simple uniform commodities. Rare coins are also a high art form. The aesthetics, eye appeal and overall beauty can vary greatly between two coins with the same numerical grade. It takes many years of experience acquired from examining and trading in countless thousands of rare coins. Lee has that experience and the peer respect of his fellow top level numismatists. He has utilized his grading eye and formalized standards in the purchase of every coin he acquires for clients. At BRCG, Lee has quantified the many thought processes that occur when he examines a rare coin for possible purchase.
