Its in an old ANACS holder. The scratches by the beak on the reverse is on the holder. Your thoughts? This is something I've aquired about 10 years ago.





Thank you

I saved the image properly rotated, don't know why its not saving that info.

There are some wipe marks but they seem limited. Also these coins sometimes get leeway on the cleaned designation. This one doesn't look that bad.

The coin does not have original skin and my first thought was AU Details cleaned, but a lot of these coins get straight graded as market acceptable.

The vast majority of Trade dollars, a dealer once told me, are cleaned. He said 19th century cargo dealers -- mostly Europeans doing business here -- washed their coins as a matter of course. After all, there's no telling where those coins had been.

Assuming that to be true, it wouldn't surprise me if the TPGs might apply a different standard, and give a coin like this a straight grade. It's obviously been cleaned, though.

For what it is worth, I was a research graduate student in North India in the 1980s. I would amass a significant number of coins from the market over the course of a week. They were often truly filthy, and I would frequently toss them into a pot of water treated with 7% iodine solution.
