Original, frosty white coins, from the mid-50s, that have never been dipped and that terrific luster and flash are very tough. They are quite a bit tougher than truly wonderfully toned coins from the same era.


Coins like the one you have posted, however, are possibly even tougher than those mentioned since that piece looks like it was an endroll coin or a US Mint Set coin. I would go with endroll that had the sulfur bleed through since there appears to be nice geometry to the toning on the obverse.
