    Great find, rare, nice grade, like the original tone, but I'm trying to decide whether that is textile toning or fingermarks on the reverse...

    I think the former is far less likely than the latter.

    Well done.
    My question is, would that coin benefit with a spritz (and thorough rinse) to clear up the uneven and black toning and (likely) album residue on the reverse before it gets into plastic?

    Have a nice day

    I came across an old time collection in the last year and a half that landed a few one of a kind coins.....I know the feeling, but not like this big coin.



    I ran the last two pics through my PE and your coin shows a bit more luster.
