Is NGC now grading medals that are referenced only in Harkness?

2 posts in this topic

NGC grades medals that appear in certain references (listed here: https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/2550/NGC-US-WORLD-TOKENS-MEDALS/ ). This list of references does NOT include the Harkness book on Agricultural/Mechanical Society Award Medals. This (link: https://coins.ha.com/itm/expositions-and-fairs/tokens-and-medals/1872-mechanics-and-agricultural-fair-association-of-louisiana-silver-medal-ms62-ngc-harkness-la-20-awarded-to-a/a/1311-5076.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515 ) is a medal that appears only in Harkness (and not in Julian, Musante, Rulau, etc). Is NGC now grading medals that are referenced solely in Harkness?

Hello Brycebooks,

I have been told the following,

We use two harkness references. The ones listed in the American Institute Award reference we have always used the Harkness reference for. The ones listed in the Agricultural and Mechanical Society Award Medals book, we have done for the past 4 years using the Harkness reference. However, even if the medal is not listed in Harkness we still certify them, even if they're engraved. We almost never decline to certify them.
