 Overall this coin looks great, way better in hand. Only problem I really have is AP forgot to use a tissue. Is there something that can be done to the green area on the obv. or do you think I should just leave it?

Thanks. Smiley

Grind flat with dddp tools and then either have a brlightly shining field or repatinate.

However, I would not be 100% certain that when you grind away it is stable and dense enough to allow you to smooth it out.  It could be so crumbly in there or have a deep, soft BD cavity that you end up with a giant pit in the field

So what is worse??  The mucuousy blob you currently have or a big pit??

I would be very wary myself as head-cold aside it is a nice coin as is.

I agree with Shawn. You could grind it down, but you would probably be left with pink junk at best.
