Cleaned long ago and starting to re-tone ...especially the obverse.

Can't tell if the stuff around the stars and on the rim on the left side of the reverse is caked corrosion or just heavy toning.

I need a sharper image to grade that coin.
But I agree that it has probably been cleaned.
I see no Mint shine.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

It's got some of that soap film look that often accompanies cleaning. Unc details:cleaning. FH.
I hope I'm wrong and it's just the picture. It's a beauty and an especially good strike.

Ma details was my initial thought after holding in hand. The stuff on the reverse looks like toning though and not caked corrosion but I could be wrong, I took a few through my loupe

The "stuff" on the reverse rim, between the 8 o'clock and 10 o'clock positions, looks pretty thick to me. The same "stuff" appears to be affecting the stars in the same general area.

This coin is a victim of being dipped multiple times and not being rinsed properly. In this case, like many others like it, time does not heal all wounds!

The coin still has a lot of meat on it . However it's been cleaned . The green on obverse and especially the reverse is saying corrosion . Au-55 Details .

Returned it..I bid based on the pictures given and it was either a) dark pictures because seller doesn't know better or b) hiding the fact it was cleaned. With A) I had a shot at getting a very nice piece at a discount. B) I overpaid slightly..I dont mind paying a little extra, but I want a ms coin not a cleaned if I'm goning to do so
