I've seen one of their conserved coins. looked like a bad cleaning job to me:

Did they help it, or ruin it? To me they ruined it. They removed the mint surfaces trying to remove the spots. Some things you should not do to a coin. Alter them. I wouldn't want to be the one bought this one.

To a true coin collector, the original finishes are more desirable. Altered surfaces to them is terrible. What NGC did to this coin was not nice, but undesirable. It would have been better off before the conservation. Send to PCGS and it would be body bagged. Sometimes things should be left alone. To an unseasoned collector they may think it is nice. But not to me. This image came from another forum years ago. I saved it to show that even professionals can ruin coins also.

On eBay it looks like the value would be around $200,so you are good. I could not find an exact match. FYI: Red Book values are about 20% too high across the board.

John1: I only buy a Red Book every few years. (current one 2008) That is my way of reducing Red books prices. LOL
