This coin was added about 4 months ago as an upgrade to my 7070 PCGS toner collection. There is no pedigree on the coin. On my toners I have tried to find coins that are original with color. Putting the set together has had its challenges. I appreciate that original toners may not be for all collectors because I can remember a time that I passed on a key date because it had a little bit of toning.

Thanks for the comments and grades

Not a huge fan of this toning specifically, but congratulations nonetheless, I'm glad that it's found a good home in your collection.

The original image was terrible.
Made a good coin look awful.

If the PCGS pic had been put up we could have graded it properly.
What a waste of time.

But how do you really feel echidna

I think I would have been equally on the fence with the not-so-Trueview pics @ AU58-MS63.

Thanks for the input. I tried to provide photos that picked up imperfections, and how it appears in hand. The CCF grades ranged from AU58 to MS65. Grading toned coins from photos is difficult. The True View Photos are glamor shots, and make the coin appear much lighter than it actually is in hand. I had purchased the coin based on the Ture View photos and I was a little disappointed on how dark the coin actually was. Finding a business strike Barber half with original color toning is difficult, so I kept the coin.
