Hi, I need this coin for my collection. Please see link below. Please read the description...do you really think this is natural toning?

It's probably natural, but it's not entirely attractive to me, especially at that price.

I think it grades in the vf-20 range. I wouldn't pay what the seller is asking.

I know that I am color blind, but in what world is that considered a rainbow tone?
Or am I missing something there?

Looks like there was something on the coin like tape residue then it was cooked off.

It also looks like a VF to me.

And, looks like some corrosion or something on it, I would'nt pay that much for that particular coin.

I agree ... not pretty and more of a problem coin than a premium

I noticed that coin the other day when surfing E-bay coins. Personally, I'd stay away from it. Three reasons:would only grade VG-10 at best, overpriced and appears to have corrosion. There is however, a nice problem free I.C.C.S., F-15, 1894 nickel for sale on E-bay. Starting with NO Reserve at just $1.00. Excellent KEY date coin that everyone needs in their collection, especially with a mintage of a mere 500K.
Current I.C.C.S. Population report states that there are less than 300 known to be higher than the one currently listed. With a survival rate of just 1-2% for this series, I would guestimate less than 1,000 survivors (raw/slabbed combined) world wide!

Thanks for the lead Glen, Im still searching for this listing....just having trouble scrolling through all the Chinese replica listings...in order to have a look see.
Regardless, lots of valuable opinion in this particular posting.
