On buying coins with terrible pictures, how about good pictures of terrible holders?

I saw this one on the bay, the color looked attractive and 'seems' to have a good strike. I had a 5% bucks offer and about $75 in available ebay bucks so I went for it on somewhat of a gamble.
Here's the issue- Looks like someone stored it with their gravel. The holder has been through absolute hell.
Seller pics:

I am working on polishing out the scratches, but I don't think I'll get them all out. Now that I can see the coin in there it's actually very nice looking. I think I did well with this one.
Will get some updated pics shortly.
