Appearance review question

4 posts in this topic

I am about to submit a coin for an appearance review. There are green spots that could be PVC on both the obverse and reverse of my NGC MS65 Barber quarter. Do you think that I should include a note with my submission telling them what I think the problem is? Is that a good idea?


Maybe I should e-mail NGC and tell them that the coin is on the way? What is your experience with appearance reviews?

I sent in a Barber Dime recently that had some spots on the reverse and some really dark, fingerprints on the obverse. I filled out the form, and attached a letter with my concerns about the piece. When the coin was returned, NGC had lightened the fingerprint to where it wasn't distracting and removed the spots on the reverse.
