Cleaned? Yes, decades ago and now nicely toned over. The cleaning was not a harsh one with an abrasive that left deep hairlines all over the coin, rather it appears to have been a soft cloth that left shallow wispy lines under the lovely toning that has developed over the past 60-70 years since the cleaning took place. The holder does no justice for coins of this caliber. It has the look of an MS 63 or better coin. Semi-prooflike fields and minimal abrasions make this a very special type coin.
