What a phenomenal GEM! No question this coin is 100% ORIGINAL.
Highly unusual to find a big coin like this with such powerfully reflective mirrors -and it has NOT been dipped! Both sides have swirling patched of moderate ORIGINAL gold/golden brown/blue/purple/pewter toning. You can clearly see the clarity of the mirrors and the full flash through the toning. Miss Liberty and the details are fully struck and have a thick creamy white frost. If the reverse toning were a little lighter, we could easily see this coin being designated a cameo. The eye appeal is outstanding!
