Ok guys I got this 1866 sheild nickle stars & Ray's variety should I clean this or just leave it alone? I've washed it with water & put a coat of olive oil on it. It's a really nice looking coin other than looking like a red headed step child🤣😂🤣 Would a coin in this condition have any value to it as is? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!

Coin will always be graded with enviormental damage. Won't be worth much. I would leave it as is, a good looking coin.
