Yes I think it would be a candidate for conservation as I would like to prevent further deterioration. PCGS has a restoration process and while not cheap, it's not so high as to be prohibitive, at least on a one time basis. I really do like this coin and am not thinking so much of final grade they may give it or value as I am of just preserving it as much as possible. The PCGS literature states one of the most common problems they deal with is removal of toning. But not in such a way as to destroy any natural attractive toning. That sounds to me like they can safely do it and not ruin the coin. I would hope to have them put it in a PCGS slab with some sort of Redfield attribution.

If you submit the coin in its original Paramount holder, I believe you have the choice either to have it stickered in the original holder or cracked and attributed in the TPG slab. Give them a call to verify this before submission.

Redfields do carry a collector premium in shows, but I personally haven't seen much difference in price between Paramount holders and TPG slabbed attributed coins. Others may want to weigh in on this.

Thanks, I had sent this off to PCGS on Thursday 6 May and asked for PCGS holder with Redfield attribution. Put this in the additional comments section. Turn around is 4-6 weeks.

Back from PCGS restoration/grading. Trueview is all I have as coin not back in hand yet. Think I liked the way it looked previously. Wanted it restored though just to try preventing further toning. Grade was not the object but guess if was done as part of normal processing. Care to compare your own grade to PCGS and/or the grade here you gave it earlier?
