This does not look like natural toning to me. Thoughts?

Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Probably not alone, but looks natural to me.

It looks accidentally toned to me - an AT coin doctor would probably have done a better job on a coin of that caliber

IMO something this would fall under the questionable color label.


It doesn't look like it was intended to deceive someone, but was probably left in undesirable conditions.

UNC details imo

The coin does not look natural, but I would not put the AT tag on the coin. I like toned coins, but I would pass on the OP coin.

From the images, I don't care for this one, and I would imagine that cac didn't care for it either (although that may have more to do with actual grade than color).

It looks like the lighting is exaggerating the color. Not that attractive, but it might be natural, caused by some environmental conditions.

It's important to take a look at the second set of pictures with the coin in the slab. I never look at the Heritage juiced-up pics that appear first. I've always felt that the second set of pics in the slaps are a more accurate representation of what the coin will look like in-hand.

It's natural, but very far gone.

I was thinking "Questionable" until I looked at the slab images. I think MikeF is probably right and the colors are exagerated in the coin only pictures.
