May end up sending it off to PCGS depending on how it looks in hand.


Worth a shot, methinks. Do let us know how matters play out.

Thanks Helder!

Will certainly do Exo. We'll see how it looks in hand first of course.

This one came in a couple days ago. Great looking example in hand. I think NGC was pretty spot on with this one. I'd say this is a strong AU55, shot at 58. Could benefit from a run through with xylene, but not sure I want to take the chance with cracking this one and sending to PCGS. May end up doing a crossover with PCGS, may leave it alone.

How in the world did I miss this thread?

Nice purchase, my friend! IMHO, NGC struggles with distinguishing die polishing from circulation wear on many of the Buffs. Your coin has light to moderate clash polishing. My very first reaction to the pics was AU-58.

I'd leave it in the NGC slab. It's an eye appeal '26-S. You did well here.

Thanks everyone! Going to leave it be (for now) in its current holder. May send off to CAC in the future.

Why not pay them to conserve it? They will likely use (PCGS-only super-special magic) xylene as well, but for a coin like this its probably worth it not be reminded every time you look at it how you think it would have been better with a xylene bath.

I can only dream of having a 26-S like this

@Earle42. Short answer, I don't trust them! .

The problem is not knowing exactly what steps will be taken to "conserve"the coin. And really, I don't think I'd want anything further than xylene to come in contact with it. So in my mind, why risk it becoming a possible "cleaned" Details example after they send it in for grading..... it's happened before.

And by no means am I saying I'm more capable of handling the conservation, just stating the disconnect between the customer and PCGS's conservation.

Wow - somehow this does not surprise me though as the more I dig into these companies, the more I am most definitely impressed...by their lack of living up to what the market says they are ad their own claims.

I had no idea they would go as far to to take a step that was risky and mess it up. Sad.

@GreatCollections:

Ron Guth...former PCGS president - from youtube video entitled:
"CoinWeek: We Take the PCGS Grading Challenge! - 4K Video"

"What we have learned is that the best graders get it right {emphasis added} about 80% of the time"

Yup...

Buy the coin and not the slab.

And yet people will pay thousands more for just one MS grade higher...
