Agreed i had to learn the hard way one time.
There's nothing to be gained by dipping a circulated coin really and a lot to lose. You could do it if it's terminally toned to correct the much worse problem of the terminal toning, but that would be the only reason really to do it.
I think if you can't tell a high end AU58 from a low end MS60, you've got no business really messing around with a coin dip because a disaster is the likely result if it's AU.
This coin. Carry it if you like. It will go even lower as far as grade over time, but the new wear might improve its overall appearance. The date is strong and you didn't pay much for it.
I've been carrying around two walkers that i picked up three weeks ago, had that same tackiness, coming out pretty nice and clean now. I'll post pics later.
Honestly, I think this half looks good with the skin on it. Maybe others will opine here.
Leave it as is.
I'm pretty much positive it's already been dipped so just leave it alone.
Maybe a few times. Not much left to dip. I'm gonna leave her be, in that dept, but may carry her a bit. See how she wears.
I agree a coin dip is a little late a consideration with respect to this one. I believe it should get acetone. Do it in a glass jar, covered. That will, in a manner of speaking, "open up its pores," giving it its best shot at aging naturally. The whole idea is, you don't know what's on there, now.
I don't have a problem with it, at all. Just have never seen a dipped coin in person.
