    I have seen listings on ebay of NGC coins that say they are burnished, but the label does not say burnished. Others have burnished on the label. My questions is, can the coin be burnished, without saying that on the label? I would think all NGC labels would have to say burnished, if in fact the coin is burnished. Just wondering if sellers are using the word burnished by mistake, since the label doesn't say it's burnished.

    This article talks about it:

    “When the Uncirculated Silver Eagles first came out in 2006, we did not designate them as burnished,” Schechter said via email. “Historically, our labels did not include additional descriptions where there was no ambiguity. Since issue, however, these coins have been widely called ‘Burnished Silver Eagles’ by collectors. ...

    “When we modified our label to allow longer descriptions and because of requests/questions from collectors, we added this terminology to the label.”
