I like the second one best, it reveals the luster and the irridescent toning. Perhaps a combination of the natural and artificial lighting would be most interesting. I used to dislike fingerprints and would never have bought a coin with a fingerprint, but I've changed my mind about that and wouldn't hesitate to buy a nice coin with a fingerprint on it. The good old days, when people could actually touch their coins...

I'd go with the 2nd set - coin looks "warmer" & more eye-appeal - but seems to show a lot of marks on the cheek. #3 seems somewhat dull & lifeless - which one looks the most like the coin in the "flesh"
