Ex. H.C.Lindgren from the Butte College Foundation

I bought this coin in August last year, on it´s receipt i placed the coin immediately into quarantine just has a precautionary measure. I was worried about the possibility of BD even though to be honest the coin did look stable. After five months of periodically checking for further outbreaks of possible BD i am now contemplating adding this coin to my collection, more specifically into my coin cabinet. Please share your thoughts if you feel that i am slightly premature in placing it with my collection and that i should wait awhile longer ?
