Nice find TB. Let us know if you do decide what to do about anything on the surface before grading and after. It will be educational for us. Thanks.

I am tempted to do nothing to it, as I dislike mucking with expensive coins at all, but unsure how a TPG would look at a coin with oily residue on it. Anyone have any experience with such? Maybe I should post that question in the grading forum.

Look at that beard!! What a great looking example. Congrats bats.

Almost looks like ren wax may have been applied. If it were mine I would take the acetone approach first, followed by xylene if acetone doesn't do the trick.

Given the way PCGS had been lately..... if you picked up on the residue, I'm sure they will and will more than likely give it the Details. If your ok and accepted it as a Details coin, leave it be. But I'd go the acetone, xylene if necessary route. My 2 cents.

So does this new rare species of gecko have a new scientific name yet?
Tbesius gecko-ous or Tropical Battius Gecko-ous maybe?
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

I would do a quick dip in acetone and send it TB
