Please note that white spot free coins in OMP can come back from grading with spots!

Shouldn’t prevent you from sending in your coins but that is something to bear in mind.

The risk is small but not zero.

Good Luck!

If most of the coins have toning do option C for all of them.  If only a few have toning, then only those do option C and rest do option A.

I know US debt looks bad;however, US is doing much better than Europe. US public debt to gdp is about 70% vs 100% in Europe. Total global debt is around 240 trillion so US debt represents less than 10% of that. So far, US wins the “least ugly” competition. US dollar will shoot up to 1985 highs and bring down gold and silver prices with it.
Modern Chinese Coins / NCS Conservation Question
« Last post by aupanda on March 18, 2018, 09:12:01 PM »
Hello everyone,

I have two sheets of 2003 silver pandas, and due to the market being somewhat weak for OMP silver pandas, I’m contemplating sending them in to be graded by NGC. They are in good shape, and have minimal oxidation and no white spots. I’m just wondering what everyone’s opinion on NCS conservation.

Should I:

A: submit to NGC and call it a day
B: Choose standard conservation ($25 fee if they think coin could benefit from NCS, otherwise no fee)
C: Choose NCS Modern + NGC Grading (Flat $28 fee for both grading and potential conservation for EVERY SINGLE coin)

Your opinions are much appreciated!

And now > $21,000,000,000,000.00

Another trillion in debt is now so routine, it doesn't make news.
Don't forget:    The Forbidden City

Or a hike on the Great Wall  (out beyond the tourist area where they drop you off)
The subway stop I use for the Summer Palace is Beigongmen (line 4). In my experience this is much faster than taking a taxi. It just snowed in Beijing yesterday, but that shouldn't stop someone from Wisconsin! Have a great time Arif, Beijing is a fantastic city. Incidentally, while the rules are that a passport is required to get tickets for museums and major monuments, my driver's license/photo ID has always been accepted at cultural attractions everywhere in China. No need to carry the passport around with you except for changing money.

Oh, I think the China Numismatic Museum is still closed for another week due to its proximity to the governmental activities that are making news now.

Best wishes,

Kiangnan 10 cash 1906 in lovely condition. I believe this is a mule type, but I'm uncertain about the correct catalogue reference. Any advice is appreciated.
