Reconsidering, and looking forward to restoration. Results posted.
The quarterly reconsideration special is on, and I tried 5 coins (you only pay for 4) and struck out.
However, PCGS was kind enough to send me this sticker on one of my Indians, so I just sent this back in for restoration.
Honestly the coin did not look quite as bad in hand to me, or in the Heritage auctions description several years ago, but this straight on photo I took sure shows what the experts saw. Maybe a coin not rinsed properly once over 113 years?
Anyway, I agree this reverse photo looks really bad, but in 3 weeks or so, I will repost the new True View and grade to see if restoration helped.
