I really like the rim toning on this Denver Peace
Just want some opinions before I pull the trigger

    My guess is that the coin will have far less red in hand, TV's almost always have a red tint/shift.

    It looks nice as far as peace toning goes. What is the grade 65 or 65+ ? I am in agreement that it may look alot more brown in hand

    It's a nice coin I'd pay a premium to get given the toning. The real question is how much of a premium. Some folks will pay what I think are crazy premiums for toned coins. But if you're building a set of toned coins and don't often come across a particular date with nice toning, that person may be willing to pay what I'd consider crazy money to complete a set.

    I'm kind of wary buying coin from the TV - would really like an actual in hand photo with no tilting to enhance the toning.

    Nice coin, if the price is reasonable I don’t see where you could go wrong. The only detractor is the spot on the rays, to me. But if the price was right 👍🏻

    I generally don’t like the design.
    The toning is neutral to me.
    One thing I like on that coin is the die cracks/stress marks on the obverse. Very distinct one traveling across the coin and through the Y.

    I would. I like it.

    If you like it and the price is reasonable and there's a good return policy, buy it. See if you like it in hand. The toning is attractive, but mostly neutral. The scrape in the obverse field from the hair down to about 9:00 is going to need in-hand assessment to see if it's problematic.

    TV's don't involve any tilting to enhance toning. Raw coins are lit with vertical lighting that brings out color.

    No argument that colors sometimes appear saturated. Ordinary viewing angles and lighting don't show color the same way.

    Try viewing a toned coin under direct halogen lighting. Get the glare as close to the coin as possible. You'll see why TV's of raw coins can show color we usually miss due to the glare of a slab.

    But I get your point. A middle ground would be nice.

    Not one I would buy... I do not like tarnish. Cheers, RickO
