Can this 1936 Mercury Dime PCGS PR64 be conserved?

2 posts in this topic

Just acquired the 1936 Mercury Dime PCGS PR64 linked below. Can the spots on the obverse be removed with NCS' services? I have never submitted to NCS before and would be interested in benefiting from the services without losing the PR64 grade. Thank you.

We will evaluate all certified or uncertified coins, token and medals to determine what if any conservation is needed.


In the case, we would look at the problem (which looks like something we could address) but also the coin's current grade. If we do not feel the coin will maintain its current grade as is or after conservation, we will not remove it from its holder unless you specify to conserve regardless of grade.


While the conservation treatment itself will not cause a coin to down grade, residues and toning can sometimes hide minor marks that once visible may warrant a lower grade.


For more information that may be helpful, I would recommend visiting www.ncscoin.com and looking into "how to submit" and our Grade Protection option. You can also contact our customer service department at 866-627-2646.
