Default Survey -- 3 candidate coins for NCS treatment

We haven't talked about "conserving" coins for a while, so I'd like
to do a quick survey. Here's a link to a page with six 800x600
images of 3 coins I currently own. One of the coins is a recent
purchase and may go back, the other two I've owned for a while:

Which coins do you think would benefit from a trip to NCS and a nice
refreshing bath or two?

Good thread topic. Should get some heated opinions :-)

1) Barber Quarter -- NCS should be able to bring out a nice cameo effect
on this one. Send it.

2) Isabella Quarter -- while I'm not a toning kind of person, the toning
here is unobtrusive and quite natural. I'd leave it as-is.

3) Lafayette Dollar -- Yecchh!! This one looks like it contracted some
bizarre tropical disease. NCS would clean it up nicely. Send it in.

I think that coin numbers 2 and 3 could benefit. Coin number 1 hopefully
is in a red PCI holder because there are enough hairlines on that coins
obverse to blind a man!

I vote for the Lafayette Dollar as being the candidate for NCS.

Why NCS as opposed to PCGS?

Trying to learn,

Alas, it is not. PCI Green Label Serial Number 000010443500005.
Guess which coin is the new purchase? Although I did not intend for
this to be comment on coin photographs, here's the same obverse shot
under more "head-on" lighting:

The Barber is severely hairlined which cannot be fixed, the other 2 are nice
original toning and should be left alone.

The only coin I'd consider is the Lafayette. The toning on the others doesn't
look at all bad to me from the photos and shows the coin is original.

If those scratches are on the holder of the Barber, that's a nice coin.

Wow! I have photographed coins where the difference in angle was the
difference between MS67 and bodybag, but I have never had anything that
dramatic. Man, and I really like the look of that obverse in your second
picture. Makes me wince when I go back and look at the first image. Bill
