I am looking to send a coin in for a review of grade and possibly a designation review.

Coin is here  1883 3cn NGC PF66 Cameo

Has/Does NGC label a "lamination error" on coins from this era.

How should I proceed if this is what I would like reviewed ??

Kind Regards

Mike

That's a very minor error that likely resulted from gas trapped within the copper-nickel alloy. When compressed by the dies it can form bubbles just under the surface.

While interesting this is not something that NGC would attribute as a mint error unless it is quite severe.
