BB'ed for dip residue!

2 posts in this topic

Checking my order NGC status I noticed I received a body bag for "dip residue". The coin is a 1927 Buffalo. I usually rinse all raw coins I buy with acetone so I was surprized! The coin does have a reddish bronze color toning though.

My question is can NCS do anything for the piece other than a funeral?

There is hope for your coin. "Dip residue" is one of the NGC no grade reasons we can often help though proper conservation. How successful we will be in ultimately getting your coin to a state that it will be certified by NGC will depend on if this dip residue has damaged the surface. Dip is an acid and can eat into the metal of a coin if left. Assuming your coin does not have an additional problem such as an improper cleaning, if the residue has not damaged the surfaces, then your coin can be certified by NGC after the conservation.


Chris, NCS
