I hear this particular eBay seller is notorious for magically creating colorful coins? Like this Flying Eagle?

Yeah, I vaguely remember reading about the seller on this board. So when I came across this listing I decided to post it here for confirmation.

Not a fan.... of the coin or the seller. They state it's cleaned, but refuse to state AT. Shady to say the least.

I am always suspicious of coins with what looks like to have very attractive toning.

Almost impossible to prove if the toning is natural or artificial.
So I just ignore attractive toning, when it come to value, despite the the fact that I do actually appreciate the toning.

Because of the equal plusses and minuses, attractive toning has a net zero effect on my decision to buy or not.

Too bad he ruined a nice FE. Also likes to do that to Indian cents.

I've often wondered how much of his stuff straight grades. To me, it's a one-look AT. But I do wonder about this.

A lot of this guys AT work gets straight graded by NGC. Below are three works of his that are for sale on his eBay site that were submitted in the same NGC batch.

How are any of these "RB" or "BN"?

Slabbed coin certainly not RB or BN, imho.
The color presented is neither,
irrespective of if the toning is artificial or natural.

Still a desirable coin anyway.
Extra or less value? - probably slightly less for me, because I can't satisfy myself about the cause for the toning.
