The before images were ugly, ICG still graded the coin MS63: http://i.imgur.com/CvvbPfn.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZJ0XALk.jpg I soaked the coin in acetone overnight, used jewel luster style dip diluted sparingly. It helped a little then send it back to ICG which conserved it without charge.

Agreed, a vast improvement. But, why back to ICG with a key-date coin, such as this??? I'd think it would be best off in our hosts slab, or even ATS.

I agree that NGC and PCGS (and even CAC) certification helps to sell coins a lot more than ICG or Anacs. I just like ICG's fast no nonsense style and the fact that you can actually speak with a grader there which the others would never do.
