  1. UNC CLEANED --- Cleaned with what ? They should make available how it was determined. My coin looks more like a scratch than "cleaned." For the money we pay, there should be a more elaborate description on how they determined their conclusion. Don't get me wrong. NGC is top notch. EOM
  2. Thank you. Just perplexed that "cleaned" coins are a no-no. So how can I restore my Lincoln ? Can it be done ? Thank you.
  3. If a coin is determined to be UNC CLEANED, why isn't the process stopped and sent back to the owner ? It is not graded or can't be or won't be.. I assume that the problem is found early on. So, why am I charged full price for a grading if the coin is not graded ? How do they determine it was cleaned ? I recently had a 1912-S Lincoln sent back to me as UNC CLEANED. The slab that I purchased had a grade of MS66. The previous grading company said nothing about CLEANED. The obverse and reverse look to have some flaws but it doesn't look like cleaning to m. I'm not an expert; just a disappointed ne
  4. 1-1912slincolncentNNCgrade.thumb.JPG.c6a2ec9ea9dd51d4966938e05e2113db.JPGi am P***ED OFF. JUST GOT MY 1912-s LINCOLN CENT BACK FROM NGC. IT WAS PREVIOUSLY GRADED BY ONE OF THE BOILER ROOM COMPANIES. NGC SENT IT BACK WITH "UNC DETAILS   CLEANED."  NOT IMPROPERLY CLEANED. THIS " CLEANING" STUFF I FEEL IS SOMETIMES B.S.  WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A HORDE OF MORGANS IS FOUND IN THE BOTTOM OF A  CAN FILLED WITH MOTOR OIL ? DO YOU NOT "CLEAN" THEM ? SO, I GUESS THEY WOULD ALL BE RENDERED "WORTHLESS." THE COIN I SENT WAS  IN A SLAB. THE PRIOR GRADE WAS MS66RD. BTW NGC VALUES IT AT $21,500. NOW I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD RECEIVE THE SAME GRADE, BUT NOT THIS "CLEANED" DESIGNATION. AND NO ONE, BUT NO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME THAT A COIN CANNOT BE RESTORED. OH, AND DON'T TRY TO TELL ME THAT THE BIG GUYS DON'T HAVE CERTAIN "IMPERFECTIONS" IGNORED. IT GOES WITH THE TURF. MONEY TALKS. SO, NOW I HAVE A COIN THAT'S IS HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE, BUT ESSENTIALLY WORTHLESS. OH, COINS FROM THE 1700S AND 1800S WERE NEVER WIPED WITH FINGERS, A CLOTH, OR SANDPAPER. SO FOR 200-300 YEARS THEY SAT AROUND UNTOUCHED, OTHERWISE THEY WOULD RATE "UNC DETAILS  CLEANED."  HOW LONG HAS THIS "CLEANED" DESIGNATION BEEN IN THE GRADING PROCESS ?  CIAO.

  5. SO, MY COIN IS COMING BACK SLABBED "UNC DETAILS CLEANED." MY FIRST QUESTION IS: WHY WOULD YOU SLAB A COIN THAT'S NOT GRADED?" SECOND QUESTION IS: I WOULD THINK IF YOU DETERMINED THAT THE COIN WAS CLEANED EARLY IN THE PROCESS. SO, WHY GO THROUGH WITH "GRADING" IF AT THIS POINT THE "GRADE" CAN'T BE DETERMINED ? I SEEM TO HAVE WASTED TIME AND MONEY. AGAIN, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD THE GRADING PROCESS CONTINUE ? I AM IMMENSELY DISAPPOINTED HAVING NOT HEARD A PEEP FROM NGC WHILE MY COIN WAS IN YOUR POSSESSION. YES I HAVE AN ACCOUNT. YES I CHECKED "MY SUBMISSIONS." ALL IT SAID WAS THE PROCESS THA
