Minimum Crossover/Conservation Grade?

2 posts in this topic

Lets say, hypothetically of course, that I have a 2001-S Sacagawea in an ANACS 69 Heavy Cam slab with a fingerprint on the reverse. I submitted the coin in the original mint packaging so the most value I can "prove" to any insurance company would be about $5. I'd be perfectly happy to get back a, say, 68 DCAM. Can I specify a minimum crossover grade and will that be taken into consideration when evaluating the coin for conservation? My search of past posts seems to indicate you'll only conserve if coin will cross same or better.

Excellent hypothetical situation.


Yes you can specify a lower minimum grade. In the absence of any specification of a lower grade, whe it is evaluated it will be judged on the currently stated grade at least being maintained. You can certainly add a note on the submission form about any lower grade you would be willing to accept. You could even specify that there is not grade consideration in which case your coin will be conserved so long as it does grade with NGC.
