If your reason for consideration of TPG review is monetary increase, I suspect you will be disappointed.
The condition depicted is not the best (the images are fuzzy), but are adequate to determine it will not be EF and definitely will not be AU.
As an album filler/type coin, it is fine. It is still history, regardless of the "compromised" condition.
There is nothing wrong with encapsulating the piece, if you would accept a Genuine Details grading. If you would accept same, I would submit to the lowest cost grading entity. Based on the photos only, I do not observe any immediate flags, and the only thought that unconsciously was id I detected a Cud or extreme wear or a very very weak strike. I came down on the side of wear.
Looks like cleaning damage or ?
Thank you for all of the information. Very helpful.
Appreciate your input…. Thank you.
That’s very nice to hear and a great idea! Thank you!
Ok thanks for your input.
Appreciate your input!!!
Despite the cleaning, it's not bad looking, but I haven't met a Bust half I didn't like.
I don't think it's worth the extra expense of slabbing. Enjoy it as-is.
So not sure I follow. Does this change thoughts on my coin? I am adding new obverse and reverse pictures which are better than the original I uploaded.
How can you tell? Good question. It’s hard to describe. The way the light reflects off of it does not look like natural luster, is all I can say. It’s one of those things one develops an eye for after looking at a lot of coins.
