The "cleaned" coin stigma, 1858 1C sm.. how to...
I realized there are plenty of topics regarding the ugly "cleaned" details designation on coins, just wish the graders would provide more details to it....any-who.
Attached is a coin I purchased earlier this year and had graded by PCGS. Like many others here I had high hopes for this one only to be knocked back a step...all good, it happens.....and then the but....
....but now I'd like to sell it. I've read various articles on selling cleaned/detailed coins but they often pertain to lower grades and can be vague at best when it comes to pricing for resale. I'm not saying I have a 5 digit coin but if it wasn't designated as cleaned it would go for a nice return I believe.
The question...How much would you consider it's value for resale ? I personally think it's in great condition at a minimum of MS64 to 66 less the "cleaned". You can reply here or via pm if you wish.
...also if chemically cleaned can that process be lessened, neutralized or eliminated somehow ?
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
