That's the problem. I would rather not buy a cleaned piece, but there are less than 50 of these tokens know to exist.
In my opinion I think that it would be wise to purchase this piece. In the future if you ever have the chance, upgrade it to a non-cleaned one. But considering the rarity I would not risk the chance of loosing this one.
I don't have high hopes for it having original surfaces. All of the Republic strawberry tokens I've seen have various degrees of fire damage and I could easily see someone trying to "improve" their token's appearance.
All Republic tokens have the same design/lettering on the obverse and reverse.
Yes, the dot is normal. Although I'm not sure why it's there.
I'm assuming it's a center punch made by the die maker.
Here's a comparable dot on my "Earl's Tavern" token from Albany, WI. The dot is at the bottom left corner of the E in TAVERN.
