Inside NCS - The Evaluation Team
Posted on 6/1/2002
Even though two coins may appear to have the same problem, the procedure undertaken to produce the best results may be different for each coin depending on the underlying surfaces. Knowing this, the NCS Evaluation and Conservation Team not only identifies the problem, but also carefully analyzes the condition and originality of the surface underneath. The condition of the coin's surface will not only affect the outcome of the conservation procedure, but also the appearance and grade of the coin after its completion.
Our evaluators have authenticated and graded millions of coins as collectors, dealers, numismatic conservators and professional graders, and apply this knowledge and experience to consistently judge what coins need and may benefit from conservation. This puts us in an exclusive category and is one of the reasons we are the recognized authority in numismatic conservation.
Few people have the experience to do this consistently, which is why NCS relies on an Evaluation Team that consists of the most knowledgeable and experienced numismatists in the hobby today. Our Evaluation Team includes two NGC Grading Finalizers who act as consultants and bring decades of experience to the table. The NCS Team are the foremost experts in the minting process, grading, numismatic conservation and most importantly, assessing surface condition.
Having the experience to know what coins need and will benefit from conservation makes all the difference and is why NCS has grown rapidly and gained immediate recognition.
