NCS Handles Eliasberg Gold
Posted on 8/1/2005
NCS has seen several of the recently sold Eliasberg world gold coin collection. A number of coins from the collection were graded using NCS Details Grading service due to surface problems that made them ineligible for NGC to offer a grading opinion. Still others have been submitted to NCS for conservation by their owners.
Some of the coins in the Eliasberg collection were not able to be graded by NGC because of irreversible surface problems. For these coins, a grade of the details remaining on each coin was determined along with a description of the problem preventing them from being graded by NGC. This information was then printed out on a 4x5 card along with a high resolution image of both the obverse and reverse of the coin.
A handful of additional Eliasberg coins have been handled by NCS after their new owners had submitted them for conservation following their sale at auction last April. "Although the frequency of Eliasberg caliber coins coming to the market has diminished, we have seen a steady increase in these types of coins being submitted to NCS," David Camire, President of NCS, said after conserving a small portion of the collection.
