Would it warrant a DCAM if the toning had been removed?
Your thoughts please.
Looks good toned, but is a little lite on part of
I don't know, but I wouldn't want someone to remove the toning to find out. It is gorgeous.
That is a good looking coin as is. I'm sure a quick dip would pull out more contrast. The reverse has that DCAM look, but the obverse my hold it back. I vote for a dip and resubmit.

Attached are photos of the same quarter taken by Todd many years ago. These two photos show completely different looks to this coin.
As far as removing the toning on this coin, I have resisted doing so for 15+ years now. It is gorgeous the way it is. But I do think that absent the toning it would warrant a DCAM designation (of course I may just be afflicted with the "ownership adds a designation" phenomena when I have this thought of it going DCAM).
After viewing these two photos and comparing them to the Trueview photo posted above, what do you think?
