Does this coin qualify for PCGS Restoration?
I have a 1901 Swiss one franc that has (IMO) some unattractive toning. I was going to send it in with a group of coins for grading, but thought it might be eligible for restoration. The problem is that, should I send it in for restoration and PCGS determines it isn't eligible, I end up with effectively a one coin submission, which would be more expensive than including it in the larger group for grading. So, the question is whether this particular coin would end up getting restored.
I would value any forum member's opinion on the likelihood of PCGS agreeing the coin should be restored.
