Milk spots on silver maple leafs

Does milk spots affect how PCGS grades a coin? Affected coins are graded or are body-bagged?

    Welcome. :)

    "When initially grading modern silver issues, PCGS will deduct for spots that are already evident."

    Welcome. No third party grading service guarantee against milk spots forming after encapsulation and milk spots are known to grow. There’s no real conservation available. They are nasty little problems 😉

    @t_y .... Welcome aboard. Yes, milk spots detract from grade... are not removable and will grow. Cheers, RickO
