NCS is the only professional service of its kind dedicated to conserving numismatic property. Staffed by professional numismatists with decades of experience, NCS conservators provide sophisticated and targeted treatment to improve the surface stability and appearance of coins, medals, and tokens.
Executive Director of the PNG, Robert Brueggeman, addresses the need for professional conservation in numismatics: "The PNG has recently adopted NCS as its only recommended professional conservation organization. When a painting is in need of conservation we turn to the professionals in that industry, when a coin is in need of conservation we turn to NCS. The PNG looks forward to a continuing successful relationship, where our member dealers utilize NCS to conserve their coins, eliminating the risk involved in improper techniques."
The President of NCS, Dave Camire, suggests that this arrangement will enable NCS to better fulfill its primary mission. "This latest endorsement will help spread awareness for conservation and ultimately help to assure better long-term care of our numismatic treasures for the years to come. We look forward to assisting the fine group of dealers of the PNG to achieve this goal."
In addition, Steve Eichenbaum, CEO of NCS, commented: "NCS is very proud to have received this stamp of approval from the most respected dealer organization in the industry. It reflects a mutual commitment to service and integrity in the rare coin industry."
