I just bought coins that were graded by NGC. Are they better than ICCS or PCGS

It depends on what coins you got graded. They all have their own grading standards although NGC is considered one of the big three when it comes to grading.

Any coin graded by ICCS is suspect
NGC is the best grading company imo
NGC is cheaper than PCGS and NGC has the best slabs

NGC Is consistently inconsistent at grading circulated Canadian coins.
Most are overgraded.
For mintstate Canadian coins their reputation is less than second rate when compared to PCGS.

I'm in favor of PCGS graded coins over all other graders for Canadian coins. I have sent in several ICCS + NGC graded coins to PCGS many come back Detailed (cleaned), (scratch) (Rim Dings) as the other two graders (ICCS) + (NGC) don't make note of these Details.
So for me PCGS is #1 for grading Canadian coins.
