big question!

3 posts in this topic

i have recently had a coin body bag from ngc with notation "rev imp. cleaned" i was wondering if it would be posable to have it conserved and then have it grade (if rev wasnt to harshly cleaned)? 1 side is good (obv which is best part of coin i think) and 1 side was cleaned at some point(still dont understand why some1 would clean just the back of coin).


can it posably be helped into slab or is it a dead coin?


please and thank you!

The bad news is that once a coin has been imporperly cleaned, professional conservation can rarely do anything to change that. For a coin to be deemed improperly cleaned, original surface metal has been removed. Conservation can not restore that. If there are residues or undesirable toning on the coin, we would be able to conserve that, but the coin would still remain improperly cleaned.


The best we would most likely be able to do with a coin such as the one your describe, is to authenticate it and encapsulate it in an NCS Details Grade or Genuine holder.
