Should I have this coin Conserved?

4 posts in this topic

I've had this coin for a couple of years now. It seems to be getting darker and more mottled as time goes on. I've been agonizing for a while now whether to have it conserved or not. When looking at it "naked eye" under a bright desk lamp, the underlying luster is booming. So much so that it blows past the mottled toning. I took this into the lab at work and viewed it under our 30X stereo inspection scope and noticed the lines which I thought were hairlines are actually raised lines from die polishing. It happens to be in an old green PCGS holder. Any comments would be appreciated.






Thanks all! cool.gif

I believe I would send it to NCS in the holder for an evaluation. I'm not sure what the black stuff is or if it can be safely removed. If you send it in the holder NCS will guarantee the grade.

It is difficult to tell what is on the surface of your coin. stev32k does have it right. Your coin would be a good candidate to be submitted for evaluation. If work is performed, the grade listed on its current holder will be maintained.
