Yes I agree haha. Had I known that conservation meant an automatic AU grade I wouldn't have done it and would've take a risk in hopes of an MS graded coin. #128533;

Does anyone know whether a NGC-conserved coin always receives a details grade?

In my personal experience, it is not automatic. I have had coins that were conserved come back with grades of MS and PF without any reference to "Details."

Coins receive the "Details" label if they have surface issues independent of NGC conservation efforts.

Better question .
Why make NCS rich ?
Most of the stuff they do to your
Coin when conserving it is easily
done yourself , IF you know what you are doing .
One example always soak any thing not obviously
NEW ( ie Gem Mint State , Gem Proof , or pleasing toning )
in either pure acetone or KOIN SOLV if you can find it .
NO rubbing or wire brushes!
The methods the conservers use are hardly proprietary!
Anyone can learn how to properly conserve coins for pennies!

Honestly. I believe this should've gotten a higher grade. Comments?

I'm not sure why you believe the coin is under-graded. Your latest images clearly show wear/metal loss. A coin can't be accurately called "mint state" if it exhibits wear.

with commems. There is obvious metal loss/wear visible on the coin and an AU grade is the correct technical judgment of the circulated state.
