Haze on coins such as yours can usually be removed to reveal the mirrors and sometimes cameo underneath. There are coins NCS receives which have a thick haze that through time and improper storage has stained the coin to some extent. True milk spots that appear on silver coins of the 1950's and Peace Dollars can not usually be removed. The spots were created during the minting process and were struck into the coin. There are spots sometimes commonly referred to as milk spots which happened after the minting process and those have a good success rate in removal through professional conservation.


It is extremely difficult to give an evaluation from an image. It does appear that your coin has some haze. The haze can be removed. The couple of spots on the obverse appear to be promising to be removed through professional conservation.


Chris, NCS
