*Admin Please Delete* Enhanced toning? Opinion?

5 posts in this topic

Just have an example of a toned Merc and trying to decide if the toning maybe been enhanced,  or sped up in any way.  The colors are pretty questionable as well. It would be pretty incredible to get this color pattern,  but would anyone waste they're time trying to tone it only to not make any extra premium?  I like it either way, but curious.  That small circle on the obverse is odd too.  Thanks for your opinion!

The toning looks suspect. While it might not make sense to mess with it for financial purposes, one never knows. There would be no downside in doing so and perhaps several dollars of upside. Additionally, initially, coin doctors tend to experiment with low value items.

It looks cool.

Since there's no way to know where it's been, maybe it was in the pocket of one of the pilots of the Enola Gay, for good luck.

Unarguably, both the coin and the title of this thread have received harsh treatment, making them both more interesting.

There really is no way to tell,  but I'll just have to keep it aside.  It was saved purely for trying to figure the toning out.  It's weird and I'll just leave it like that.  Admin can still delete :)

Thanks guys
