it looks like the PCGS photo in hand. I suck at coin photography so would not be much help by taking a pic.

If it pleases your eye at the price you wanted to pay, then I'd say that's a great day in "The Hobby!" (and doesn't happen every day, especially in Seated dollars!)

Oh you're golden. That's what I have and I suck too but getting better.

Put the coin under a lamp on a desk. Prop it up with something so that it tilts almost to a 45 degree angle(I like to prop it up with two stacked PCGS holders). Click the camera button on your phone. Steady your arms on the side of the desk. It's a touch screen, so put two of your fingers together in the middle of the screen and spread them apart to zoom in on the coin. If it's too zoomed in, touch the screen with two fingers spread apart and close your fingers together to zoom out.
When the view on the screen looks right, hit the photo button on the screen (it's the round button in the middle under photo on the screen) and start snapping pictures. Move it around so that you get the coin from different angles and so that the lamp light reflects off of the coin.

It should bring out any hidden toning that isn't noticeable in the Great Collection photos.

You'll need to upload the pics to the CCF so we can see them.

Ok those are a good start. But I learned it's important to use the zoom in feature on these iphones. So when you see those images on the screen, take your thumb and pointer fingers, hold them together and touch the middle of the screen. Next spread your fingers apart to zoom in.

When you use the zoom in feature, the pictures should look something like the follow pics. I took these on my iPhone doing the same thing.

Seeing your pics and your assessment that it looked more like the PCGS pics, you got a great deal on that one.

Keep tinkering with it- it takes some practice and tweaking but one you get the picture side, you will enjoy being able to show case your collection. Mastering the zoomin feature is what's needed. I would love to see this coin inhand!
