I understand. Sorry, by promote I mean you mention. I know you are not advertising them (unless you own stock in you know who!) I'm not trying to argue about TPGs (third party graders) so please don't regret mentioning them. They are surely the two largest, most advertised. TPGs do mention cleaning on their labels. I was thinking you are trying to teach non expert collectors about cleaning which is so very useful to us all. So, novice collectors who are not buying the $10,000 coins, I didn't want them to get the idea to never look at ANACS or ICG for that slabbed $300 coin they might want. More than anything, I hope the readers know this hobby is full of interesting topics, fascinating ideas, and more entertaining twists than any other.

good post! how does NGC do their cleaning and not get a details grade? Saw the post of a walker that was in PVC and beautifully cleaned to an awesome non-details grade

Well put. However, I still buy them if the cleaning isn't as destructive as you mention. Some of which, particularly in the Barber dime series I completed after many years have re-toned nicely, almost undetectable unless under magnification. Speaking for myself, a cleaned coin can still present great eye appeal.

Ballyhoo - yep, if the cleaning isn't too bad or has retoned and become market acceptable, then it depends on the eye appeal of the coin.

Bate - no problem, I actually didn't know this thread would get this much attention.

Great info....this is why I joined to begin with...I gave up trying to buy raw coins online because the photos are rarely that good...I have to see them in hand....and even then. I'm sure I still bought something cleaned.
