I'm wondering if there's still grease imbedded in this coin. And how can something as extensive as this happen?

It looks like some kind of sticky residue on the coin, with fibers attached, hot water or acetone would probably clean it right off

Impressive, are there any fibres protruding from the surface?
Looks like it may have been struck through some steel wool or something similar.

Cheers, Bill

@purelywasted - I could clean it but that would take away all it`s personality right ? I once had a $2.00 S/R test note. Choice UNC but what gave it it`s charm & value was there were fingerprints on it with the ink used, as if someone was inspecting it with the fingertips tainted with inc. Maybe the ink wasn`t quite dry or something. I don`t know what they go for today but I sold it for $850.00 - I got lucky, paid only $4.00 for it.

@Hounddog Bill I don`t have it in hand but I will remove the 2 x 2 and inspect it and give and update on the fibre question. Might try to get some decent close-ups as well.
