 I have submitted coins for regular grading without NCS  and in the middle of the grieving process they ask you after a recommendation that the coin should be conserved if you would like to   At that point in time you know what grade they are going to give the coin's without conservation you can either except or decline

Could you explain the process how NCS asked you if you wanted a conservation ?
Did you submitted your coins for grading only (without asking any NCS service) and NCS contacted you spontaneously ?
Or did you submitted your coins through NCS on the submission form ?

In the two examples I gave I had submitted the coins straight to NGC for routine grading. The staff contacted me by email regarding the recommendation to conserve the coins before grading due to pvc damage and residue respectively.

I have submitted directly to NCS for red spots and general clean up on gold coins with good results on improved appearance. On silver coins, if it is a case of tarnish or plain old dirt, they do a good job. They can't fix WSOD. Somewhere, either in the paperwork or on the NGC newsletter, they make the statement that instead of submitting directly to NCS ( if you are going to have NGC grade it ) you can just note in the comments section of the NGC application that you would like any coins/medals sent to NCS before grading " if the graders feel that NCS can IMPROVE APPEARANCE. That is the key phrase. NCS aims to improve appearance but doesn't claim to improve the grade the coin will receive because of their treatment.

Thank you for all your replies.
It is a very good point that NGC check coins and take contact to recommend NCS conservation for increasing the coin's eye appeal even if there is no guarantee to reach a higher grade.

Congratulations. That was a good move to have them conserved!
