    It’s hard say without seeing it person. The only comment I can make from the photos is if the area around the bottom of the torch is dull, with the Proof mirror impaired, it would be a hard pass for me.

    Suspicious

    It's that blue that looks suspicious.

    IMHO the toning looks suspicious

    When you bought it, did you think it suspicious or beautiful?

    Suspicious

    I'm personally "suspicious" of all toning.

    There are too many people playing around with ways to artificially tone coins.

    Looks like it spent some time slow dancing with a hard boiled egg yolk - :D

    Beautiful

    If it is real, I would not classify it as beautiful or anything special. The photos provided leave a bit to be desired. There's a lot of hits on the portrait and average proof toners with similar colors are fairly common for 1960s Roosevelts.

    Besides the colors. It's the head shot of Roosevelt that got me! How the face seems unscathed by the toning.
    Almost a Cameo appearance with the flash of colors behind him.
