Submission for Cleaning

3 posts in this topic



I recently bought a 1940 proof Washington Quarter in a PCGS holder labeled PF 63. I see why it'd grade is so low because the coin has no "pop" left on it's surfaces. Should I send this coin to the NGC's recommended NCS cleaning service? I think it can be restored to it's former pristine condition. The price would only be about $25 plus shipping.

Welcome to the forum.


It would be a waste of money, even if the coin graded higher. There is very little value/price spread between a 63 and a 64, or for that matter, between a 63 and a 65.


There might also be other reasons that the coin is graded the way it is, reasons which could become more apparent/obvious if the coin were to be "cleaned".


If you don't like the coin, sell it and move on, but save your money. ;)
