What would you do for this poor 1857 large cent?
Looks like it was in a fire to me, seems to be some sort of plastic melted all over it and in hand it is much darker and sooty-ish.
It's a shame because it looks to be a nice mid-AU example underneath all that...
Is there anything that could be done for this coin or is it better just to not mess with it?
Any and all opinions/thoughts/suggestions appreciated!
