Fire-damaged rare date silver dollar conservation question

2 posts in this topic

Hi! I'm new to this community, but I was guided here by someone when I posted pics of my fire-damaged 1895-O Morgan, 1893-O Morgan, and 1845 $1 Seated Liberty Coins. Here is a link to the coin images (they exceeded the upload limit): https://imgur.com/a/SFGkV1K. My feeling is they are a lost cause, but in case they could/should be conserved, I'd be interested to know about that process.

Thank you, in advance!

Good morning,


After reviewing the photos, unfortunately it appears that the coins were far too damaged in the fire to be salvaged by NCS. They also would not be eligible for NGC grading as it is impossible to positively authenticate the coins in their present condition. Sorry!
