Conservation of recently minted medals and coins
« on: 2018 Feb 10, 10:39:28 AM »
I've been wondering what the benefit is of conserving recently minted medals and coins (especially silver ones), such as classical garden series medals.  If NCS cannot deal with while spots, and if freshly minted medals are encapsulated well, then what materials could be on the surface of the piece that should and could be removed by NCS?

Answer will find in NGC webpage

Conserve can slow down white BUT you need to conserve every few years. would the cost like conservation fee, shipping , reslab and so on make sense if the non fiat coin (medals) appreciate more than the cost? 

If for classical garden series which was 4 years in record which cost of conservation will exceed the value of appreciation
