    That it straight graded makes me think there's almost no way it doesn't look better than the photo.

    i'd love to see pro pics of that one.

    it is not very often that shade of green centralized like this doesn't turn out to be a wonderful toner. very odd is that when there is that shade of green, it is almost always centralized for some reason. all the ones i've seen/owned have been this way and i don't often see it on low grades like that.

    I agree. I think the blue will be tamped down a bit, but I have high hopes for that green to be real, even if the shade is off from the photo we're looking at. Looking at the fields in front of the bust, I also think chatter is more likely to limit the grade, which paves the way for the coin to have nice lustre to light up the toning. For a coin like this, I'd rather that than cleaner surfaces with muted lustre, which in turn would mute the color.
