So here's that 1859-S half I said I would post in another thread.

Does it have any chance at making PO01 at PCGS or NGC?

Sorry about the sideways images. CCF just seems to do that for some reason.

That state look like it was done more by intentional polishing, and less by circulating.
(obviously, it was not a MS coin before the polishing, but I think that it would be a details coin if submitted)

Make it your pocket coin for a year or two and it might straight-grade a PO-01. (As in it will wear away any polishing lines)

Looks to be at Fair-2 right now, but as others have suggested, it would make a nice pocket piece to get it down to PO-01.
Here is my trade list and my want list.
