1913 s type 1 - spot on date - Conservation?

It is difficult to determine what exactly the spots on your buffalo nickel are from the images. Spots similar to what appears to be on your coin are typically from a residue or a small spot of corrosion or even a combination of the two. We can at least improve the appearance of a coin with a spot similar to your and take steps to prevent it from becoming worse in the future. Having this spot reduced or removed through professional conservation would be a prudent move prior to certification with NGC.

Chris I've already sent the coin to ncs and it is awaiting evaluation. Hope to send it off to ngc with a larger herd of buffalos when I get it back. Cross your fingers that ncs can conserve. Thanks for the advice.
