Don Willis, President, Professional Coin Grading Service.
The world’s largest third coin grading company announced a new coin restoration service during the PCGS Luncheon at the FUN Coin Convention in Orlando.
PCGS President Don Willis explained how the new service will work, its fee structure and what to expect and not expect when coins are submitted.
Willis explained that most other collectible items are conserved and restored such as paintings, cars, furniture and the like so it made sense that some coins might need restoration as well.

I have a 1788 Vermont copper that as never been cleaned-
The coin is “dark-chocolate”, and the date is very “faint”-
I’m considering having it “conserved”, to bring out the full features it has-
Can you please give me an idea what it would cost to grade it as well, and pehaps an idea of what it may be worth-?
