I'm sure other will chime in with their experiences.
Not unless you pay for it.
That was what I suspected. Thanks fellows.
I always submit my coins through an intermediary who has contacts at the TPG facility, asking that all coins (usually 4 digit+ value) are assessed/viewed by the conservation subsidiary. I had hoped to avoid the "killer" DETAILS outcome. That hasn't worked, trashing some relatively very valuable coins.
I now avoid that process, just buying sight seen properly graded problem free coins.
I'd recommend you don't try having the TPG associates correct perceived deficiencies.
I will say that they have corrected some problems, but less than the detail statement results. I actually have located some dealers who have altered my coins without discovery. The TPG affiliates is believed from past results, would have failed. You may locate an experienced individual here, who may for a fee correct your perceived problem.
I appreciate that. This is far from a four figure coin. However it is an important historical coin and I would hope it can still be appreciated in another 200 years.
If you know it's needed, add it to the invoice - don't assume they'll notice and slide it in for free (they won't but it will delay your order weeks while customer service reaches out to you to find out what you want done...)
Jim, after a ~24? hour soak, would you suggest placing the coin by its edge on a multilayered toilet paper for a minute, before flipping the coin to the opposite face when raising the edge of the absorbent sheet to effect a "blotting" action by a 180 degree inversion?
Call customer service and ask if they did anything I'll have records of it
