Can NCS save this coin?

Not a Chinese coin, but like to know if anyone here know if there is any chance NCS can remove the haze?

Certainly a respectable price achieved.

Disclosure: I am not the winner, and I have no idea who won this coin.

My brief and somewhat uninformed opinion:

It is an impaired proof.  I only looked at it for a second, but I would never conserve this coin.

It's original and it wouldn't look the same.  Especially being a proof.

I vote Don't Touch!

Going to look again....

Especially at 3:00, there are really bad hairlines or perhaps die polish lines, among many other "hits"' the charcoal toning masks some of this - if you did remove it, it would look like melt.
