Would professional conservation be good or bad for this coin?

What do you think the discoloration is? Copper streaking? This is your call on a rather valuable coin which should not be left up to a novice to decide.

I have had preservation done in the past that made the coin look better. NGC also dropped the grade from 66 to 65 after they did preservation so think about it a while. It may cost you a grade to loose the yellow toning.

Just remember there is no guarantee this '86 will even grade after conservation. Is this coin a 63 or 64 ? Huge jump to 65.

I don't see anything wrong with this coin. If you don't like the way it looks, sell it and buy one that you like better. The streaky toning is due to the planchet - similar to the "woody" Lincoln cents.
