    Do you lean either way on the toning?

    Very cool piece, 19th century proofs are beautiful. I wonder how the toning occurred, maybe it was on the end of a roll at some point?

    This is exactly the kind of toning I like! Good eye.
    Looks like it could have been encased in a felt box or something. Album? Will never know. I sure hope it wasn't in a roll!! :dead:

    A felt box or album is a better guess. :hilarious:

    Its probably very unlikely for a coin at the bottom of a roll to get a MS66 grade!

    Wow!

    That one deserves some professional photographs!

    I can tell that thing has colors we're not seeing, and no doubt loads more eye appeal than seen here. Awesome.

    I like your quarter quite a bit. Appearance and toning both appeal to me. Too bad the holder is so scratched up. If it was mine, I would consider sending it in to be re-slabbed but not re-graded.

    I am guessing album toning.
