Authenticating items to be sold on Amazon is a way of ensuring the value of the product. Authentication and grading is done by a third-party grading service and provides an impartial grading of the product. This is a feature sellers may use in order to guarantee potential buyers of the product quality. Often, once a product is authenticated, it is encased in an archival-quality holder to safeguard it and this is provided by the authenticating third-party service.

Coin and comic book collectors understand the importance of product authentication. If an online retailer wants to sell either item on Amazon, an authenticated product will command better prices and guarantee the buyer the legitimacy of the product.
