    Definitely appears to be the same coin and the angle of lighting on the coin appears to have changed, as well.

    Definitely... all the 'markings' are there... just different lighting.... Cheers, RickO

    Yes, it's the same coin. The thing that concerns me is if the toning keeps on growing. I don't think that the camera / lighting angle could make this much of a difference. If the toning is due to a less than perfect dip rinse, trouble could be ahead.

    Anyone care to comment on the thought process they went through to reach their conclusion. That type of post may help the OP and many others to learn some tricks. :smiley:

    Compare the toning spots (holes in the toning) and patterns. There are too many matches to call it mere coincidence

    To many areas of toning, areas without toning etc. for it not to be the same coin.

    I know they're the same coin. I was just wondering what happened to make it look so different (just lighting or something more sinister?). It is fbl.

    +1. Really bizarre. Can't imagine that different shooting angles and/or lighting can make the obverse look as different as those two shots.

    Some refer to overgraded slabs as Coffins. I like to think of them as Happy Coins.

    All the light tricks in the world can't hide the **big black spot" over the "T." That's what I saw first.

    Same. Pretty coin, too IMO.
