I've got a more radical example that I posted a couple months ago. I sold this Buffalo on eBay earlier this year for about $50, and the buyer just resold it for $65 after "improving" it. Not much of a return for his efforts, and it's sad that he ruined it. I like the more subtle AT on 52Raymo's 1903 IHC much better.

As much as I am critical of certain eBay policies, this has nothing to do with the site and happens at coin shows and stores all over the place

Anything man can do nature can do, so while it is most likely man made yes it is possible that nature did it. That's why we go with market acceptable/unacceptable as opposed to natural vs artificial. Plenty of natural things look man made and some man made ones look natural. It's just a guessing game unless you have had the coin since the day it was minted and know it's entire history. Whether or not that coin was artificial or natural it wouldn't be acceptable either way.

I agree with this, too.

I don't think the 1903 would look that different in hand. Perhaps something like VerdiCare was used to make the surfaces more attractive and then the coin was photographed in different lighting

You can see that he cleaned the fields, darkened it, and then added blue toning of some sort.
