Many straight graded barbers in ANACS holders are called out as cleaned or details. I disagree that the high instances on ANACS coins graded straight are actually details. Unless the shots are taken with good armature coin setups every line or fleck of dust shows menacingly which absolves conisuers from making a wrong call but folks ANACS is not PCI and ANACS will detail a coin appropriately and in an instant.
Were looking at pops of uncirculated barbers with pops in hundreds not thousands at some point the collection community gets that at some point and to some degree many may certainly have been dipped, wiped, treated etc.
Seems no equipoise will ever be found but imo the 3 TPG
's know how to call these and by ANA
Those that are quick to "details" a barber rarely show their pickups, mistakes, treasures etc.
His coin would bring 200 + on ebay or GC without a pause likely from some of the harshest critics. MS-61 is defined in many scholarly articles it is a grade and it comes before MS-62
