Wondering if toning can boost this coin?

Easy 66, maybe better. Unsure of color designation. Beauty for sure.

Nice example, yes. The dark, contrasty images make it difficult to fully assess. No lower than MS65--could be higher.

At least MS-65 but photo lighting needs to be brighter to see the surfaces well.

i think there is too much glare causing quite a bit of shadowing so its difficult to see the surface preservation accurately which is required for higher end coins. looks like a scan which is not the best to assess by

if the color is correct its a pretty coin that will fair well in the eyes of the grader. cant tell if there is separation of the tie and lapel nor how well the hair is struck. what I can see there are a few very minor marks under the ear area and one on the cheekbone. the most marks are on the shoulder. the rims look pretty clean and the reverse is primo with a great strike and toning. there is just too much shadowing to see any small marks typically seen on some of the letters. maybe a tiny mark of the O of OF and one on the O of ONE.

without better photos I think the coin is minimum MS66+RB and the color if accurate will bump it to a 67. I think its one of the prettiest coins you have posted.

whats interesting is that PCGS is not showing any value for 60D LD in RB only in RD. in any case the coin would need to pull a 67 to justify slabbing

I thought you hated toned cents? LOL

At least 66 IMO, good shot at 67 with eye appeal/luster

too much reflection to get a good sense if this is above 65, date looks machine doubled, mid state dies give the devices a somewhat mushy look
