Thanks everyone! Going to leave it be (for now) in its current holder. May send off to CAC in the future.

Could benefit from a run through with xylene, but not sure I want to take the chance with cracking this one and sending to PCGS. May end up doing a crossover with PCGS, may leave it alone.

Why not pay them to conserve it? They will likely use (PCGS-only super-special magic) xylene as well, but for a coin like this its probably worth it not be reminded every time you look at it how you think it would have been better with a xylene bath.

I can only dream of having a 26-S like this

@Earle42. Short answer, I don't trust them! .

The problem is not knowing exactly what steps will be taken to "conserve"the coin. And really, I don't think I'd want anything further than xylene to come in contact with it. So in my mind, why risk it becoming a possible "cleaned" Details example after they send it in for grading..... it's happened before.

And by no means am I saying I'm more capable of handling the conservation, just stating the disconnect between the customer and PCGS's conservation.

Wow - somehow this does not surprise me though as the more I dig into these companies, the more I am most definitely impressed...by their lack of living up to what the market says they are ad their own claims.

I had no idea they would go as far to to take a step that was risky and mess it up. Sad.

@GreatCollections:

Ron Guth...former PCGS president - from youtube video entitled:
"CoinWeek: We Take the PCGS Grading Challenge! - 4K Video"

"What we have learned is that the best graders get it right {emphasis added} about 80% of the time"

Yup...

Buy the coin and not the slab.

And yet people will pay thousands more for just one MS grade higher...
