    It is distracting (not terrible, but pretty focal), so I would certainly consider it

    That's a milk spot. It won't come off with conservation.

    Here is a little closer look. ;)

    I think it may be slightly improved by conservation but would still be visible.
    I would not spend the money.

    Milk spots are struck into the planchet and are NOT removable.

    Why not? Price guide triples if it bumps. No brainer imo

    I don't think that's a milk spot, but I also don't think it's coming off. That said, it might be slightly improvable, and much of the other stuff in the field might also be, too. Since the offending spot isn't coming off, however, you're not getting an upgrade after conservation. I'd probably leave it alone and see if a nicer looking one in the same grade or one grade down shows up.
