PCGS Express Restoration Results on a 1873-S Chop Mark Trade Dollar
Submitted under the Express Restoration service to see what they could do about the green slime globbed all over the devices (see under “God”, inside the “8”, and around the 4th star and denticles). Thought I would share my experience especially as it relates to turnaround time, since it’s more of “Restoration with Express Grading” than “Express Restoration”.

Expected XF Details but was pleased they seem to have uncovered some original luster under the flat, dull look it had when I found it, earning AU Details. Still not sure what to make of the new orange splash on Liberty’s knee and the muddy water but will see how it looks in hand.
