These are the seller's pictures. The luster seems a bit impaired so I'm not sure what to make of it.

Who's the seller? Do you know him? The condition/strike obviously looks good. I would question the color and if it's tampered with or cleaned. Lighting or is it original color luster? It almost looks to orange.

How does he grade it? What's his feedback like? Do you have full return privileges? Color doesn't look right to me either.

He has 6 figure feedback and full return privileges, I just hate returning things. He describes it as uncirculated.

Does anyone see anything that might be verdigris or verdigris removed?

Looks AU58 to me. The surfaces are suspect based on his photos.

Is it eBay? I would like to see his other listings and pictures of those coins. You can hide a lot of problems/issues with pictures.

You'd be correct, does he have a reputation?

All his coins look like that. Just his jacked up photography.

I'm having a hard time seeing any wear on this coin but I have to admit the color seems off .
