If a coin has light whitish pvc and is high grade 20th century uncirculated material will the coins eye appeal improve after PCGS conservation? Do any of you have any experiences with conservation?

    It will. When I have time I will find my before and after photos and post them.

    PVC contamination is normally green in color. What you are describing sounds like milk spots which can't be conserved. Can you post a pic?

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I agree with @PerryHall... PVC is usually a light to darker green.... And milk spots cannot be removed. Cheers, RickO
