Nice find Sammeli!

I agree with okiecoiner about the grade and appearance.

So if it's a detailed coin should I try to remove the pvc damage or will I make it worse. What product should I try to remove it?

Not knowing what is on the coin, I would maybe try soaking in acetone to see if it comes off. If that doesn't work, I would just leave it as is. It's still a nice coin even with the discoloration.

It's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since Zonad first reported this 1882-H triple.

It looks like on average around 1 more each year is reported in the CCF thread.

My attempt to remove pvc contamination that you can see from previous post. How did I do?



Hope I've done a good job or have I just ruined it

You did a wonderful job, but there was lots of damage before you worked on it. If you have a few lower-grade Vickies, I suggest that you practice on one to see if some toner or treatment can turn the lighter areas that weren't affected by the green. The coin that you worked on is just dark where the green was. It is still a "details" coin, but a very scarce one. You didn't ruin it ... you greatly improved the shape of it. You should feel good.

Looks very good to me. The photo is not the greatest, but you might get this through ICCS without a comment. It is hard to make out whether the surfaces are pitted or not. It might benefit from a little handling to soften the appearance a little.

Only soaked it in acitone for 20 minutes I'm going to soak it overbite and see what happens. There is no pitting on the coin

I would leave it as is. Once the residue is gone, then there is no point in doing more. You might try to remove the gunk above the O in One with a pointy round toothpick or, if you happen to have the right trees handy, a thorn.
