    It means that at some point the coin was improperly cleaned. If you look at the fields of the coin, there are a ton of ting scratches running in all different directions. This is the result of someone rubbing the coin with a cloth of some kind. This is considered damage to a collector. The coin has the details of an MS coin, but has been harshly cleaned.

    Did you clean your coin? If so never clean your coins!

    It has about $10 worth of silver in it. I’m not an expert in these so I don’t know if a cleaned example is worth more than that. But it’s at least worth that.
