Is there a thread here in the forum that explains the acetone process in detail? I can't seem to find one

I have been looking at the coin with my USB microscope. I don't think there will be an issue with the patina, but I had better err on the side of caution as to possible PVC. I do see a green 'haziness' in places, but I do not see any pitting or other damage to the surface of the coin.

Thank you Landon. I have to say, I am fairly pleased with the results. Any reassessment on grade at this point?

I'd call it a very nice, original XF-40 with some attractive toning. Have you noticed you have it graded as VF in your ecrater store? You should upgrade that to XF and it should sell quicker for you.
