If it was my coin I would send it in for sure.  The toning will come off very easily.  those white spots look like there is a good chance that they could be removed as well.  I would think its a 50/50 chance your coin will look like it never had any problem.  Also on coins that NCS could not remove all the flaws for me, they usually sent the coin back looking nicer than when sent in.

Hi Gilmore,

Just a fyi, I have done some research on this coin as I was looking to buy one. The one you have has been resealed. The coin was originally issued by the mint in a capsule without it been plastic sealed. You will see dealers sell the coin in a capsule and double sealed. That is because the dealers themselves got it resealed. Originally it only comes in a capsule.

Because it is not in its original OMP, sending it away may not be bad idea.

sincerely,
exchange

Can NCS save this poor panda too? Less than 10,000 left in the world ... http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-oz-Silver-Chinese-Panda-999-2004-/260904137193?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cbf1931e9

That coin has scrapes and scuffs on it.  NCS cannot do anything about those. 
NCS great at getting of toning, haze and chemical residues.  They can also sometimes remove milky spots, but not very often.  I have sent in coins covered in haze and had them come back looking spotless and grading 69.

Do proof surfaces/coins look good after toning and haze removal? The coin I posted above is proof by the way. I believe that with a BU it should not be a problem.

I didn't know that. I thought it originally came out double sealed.
The coin above I can buy for less than 30% of the market price because of the toning or whatever it is. This is the reason I thought it would be a bargain if NCS save it.

The proof surfaces on most of the coins I have submitted have look shiny and new afterward.  there have been times where this was not the case, but the coins were really bad when I sent them in.

With 30% off I would have done just as you did.

buynicething Thank you very much for the helpful information.

One correction though (my bad English), I can purchase this coin for 30% of its market price, 70% off.

WOW!  That is most certainly a risk worth taking!

Same here, I also thought it came double sealed.
