Can a "cleaned" coin be conseved?

A coin can be conserved to remove any residues or undesirable toning as well as spots regardless of any surface detriments. When we are considering a coin that has been improperly cleaned, conservation can remove some of those surface contaminants but the coin will remain improperly cleaned. A coin that has been improperly cleaned has had its original surface damaged and conservation can not restore that.


It may be a good idea to submit a coin such as yours to NCS. If your coin is not actually improperly cleaned it will be submitted to NGC on your behalf for certification. If it is "improperly cleaned" then you will receive the coin in an NCS Details Grade or Genuine holder.
