Numismatic Conservation Services
Numismatic Conservation Services (NCS) is an independent member of the Certified Collectibles Group (CCG). Founded in February 2001, NCS is devoted to the growth and preservation of numismatics. As a leading authority in numismatic conservation, NCS experts are uniquely qualified to provide professional conservation services for dealers and collectors alike.
NCS accepts for evaluation all certified or raw coins, tokens and medals. NCS can remove contaminants such as PVC, soils, tarnish, carbon spots, verdigris and encrustation from the surface. NCS does not perform repairs or mechanical alterations of any kind. Removing detrimental material from the surface of an item may dramatically improve its appearance and eye appeal. NCS services are designed primarily to preserve numismatic materials and to prevent the damage that can result from contamination left untreated.
To take advantage of these services, you can become a member of the Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) Collectors Society. NGC is another member of CCG, and enjoys a strong partnership with NCS. As an Associate or higher member of the NGC Collectors Society, you can submit coins, tokens and medals for professional conservation.
