Milk Spots?
« on: September 18, 2011, 09:54:26 PM »
Hi,

What causes the milk spots to appear on graded coins? Afterall, if it is NGC slabbed MS69, it couldn't have a 69 rating with the spot, could it?

How much does it affect the price of the Pandas if they are slabbed NGC MS69 and have a milk spot or five?

Milk spots can form after the coin has been slabbed. 

In the past I think NGC did not grade against them, but now they are starting to.
This is just an opinion that I have formed.

This is an excellent discussion of the topic
