    It looks over dipped to me.

    Yep, nice, but I don't love the toning. (I don't totally hate it, either, but it's just... meh. To me.)

    I don't know if it was overdipped, but it doesn't seem very lustrous.

    All that being said, it made the grade with NGC, and is being sold by a reputable firm which deals in top-shelf material.

    If the tone of reds on a coin have anything to do with it. I would say that they should be much more vibrant. I look to @TypeCoin971793
    I wouldn't say that the tones aren't. original but the coin does not have the reflectivity of an untouched album coin.

    I do know the 1921 Peace dollars often come with brownish toning, for whatever reason, and maybe they're not always as lustrous as the lower relief coins, but I have one (a 1921) in the pipeline that I am about to buy, which appears to be much more lustrous.

    Granted, is only an NGC MS62, not a 66, but for the money, I like my $240 pending purchase more than that $6,890 coin that's only four grade points higher.

    Hang on, I have a small picture of it...

    Edit: here. The one at top left in the group shot below.

    Yes, I realize that in some way, I am comparing apples to oranges, but on a "bang for the buck" basis, I'll take that $240 MS62 over that nearly-$7K MS66 any day. But that's just me, I suppose.

    It's all a moot point anyway, since I am not in the business of buying or selling four-figure coins.

    the toning is original but meh. I don’t think the pics are fully accurate to show the eye appeal

    attractive coin, average strike. The toning is in a nice crescent that accentuates the central design. It still isn't a coin that makes me say "Wow!" though. I might think differently if I saw it in hand.
    High end dealers are very aware of price spreads and the likelihood that repeated submissions to one service or another will result in the desired grade that will appeal to the competitive registry set folks. All well and good, just not my cup of tea.
    For the 1921, I settled on this AU58, with a strike a bit above average.

    Sorry but I think it’s overgraded at 66. The marks in the hair and on the cheek to me look like a lower end 65 especially with the average at best strike

    Much better view. Phil shows a much better definition of the relief. Nice coin, Love to see it in hand.
