    NCS conservation 

    Original holder from Baldwin’s auction and after conservation. Same grade but much nicer looking coin probably also with a higher sale value.

    Todays visit from paddington:

    Much nicer IRL than compared to the pictures. What did make me laugh was getting in early means you get the last packaged ones, so despite being one of the first I would imagine I have the pleasure of certificate numbers all in the 40k's .... did make me laugh out loud!

    Done the deal on an 1852 half sov this morning. It did not sell on ebay so did some negotiating.
     The seller is local and will deliver monday.
    Not the best but cheap as early YHs go.

    Another result was announced yesterday and I wanted to talk about this one specially.
    I bought a New Zealand Kiwi coin shaped like an egg at the Great Collections Auction as a NGC PF 68

    As you can see it looked less than perfect and it had no real interest at the auction despite the low mintage of 500 coins. This coin is an @augur favourite and I really only noticed this because he had previously sent coins in for grading. I paid $355 for the coin plus 10% buyers fee (for a cash payment) and I believed that NCS could make this coin as great as it could be. NCS conservation is $28 and so the investment in this coin was 

    $390 plus $28 so a total of $418.
    The coin was sold out at the New Zealand Post office a little after release and mintage is only 500. The mint price for a coin was $845 NZ$ (£442 and US$586.77)

    After conservation the coin achieved PF70


    How much is the coin worth as a PF70? Your guess is as good as mine....
    I wanted to show you this as a worked example as it is quite interesting to see the story played out. Net price mint raw less $150 and outcome from grading and conservation probably mint + 40% (but unknown)
