Picked this up for $20. Color looks a little odd, but appears dripping with uninterrupted luster. Thoughts on grade and problems? Thanks!

Mid AU, but I'm really unsure about the color. Especially on a slightly circulated example.

AU58, I'm thinking the images are juiced - not going to look like that in hand

AU-58. Something a bit off here - doesn't seem crisp enough for MS, yet shows no discoloration.

I don't think it's been cleaned, but rather somehow recolored. Ribbon and other details just not sharp enough for MS.

Frog, not sure how you would recolor a brown bronze cent to red without cleaning or whizzing it.

I would have suspected cleaning or recoloring due to the color, but how do you do that retaining the mint luster as this coin appears to have? Anyway, I will post in hand pics tonight. Thx for the comments.
