It's a 1921 Peace, so that's nice. I've seen many 1921 coins with streaky, tobacco-brown toning. At least you don't have that.
But of course that only speaks to the eye appeal. Which brings us to your second question. Is that original or secondary toning? Did the coin have an old cleaning in the past and subsequently retone... or not? That I am unable to tell from the photos. You can bet that the TPGs would be able to tell, though.
Those lighter, drop-like spots out in the field in front of Liberty's face and forehead make me wonder. But otherwise it looks OK to me? Not fantastic, but certainly not bad, either.
@GL33 and thanks for posting your photos Full Image. Makes it a lot easier to view. The toning might be a negative if it is hiding an old cleaning. I'm not saying the coin was cleaned, but has some suspicious spots on it.
Thanks for the comment, I'm not sure about luster. Her neck on the obverse reflects a dark, dark blue would that be luster?
I understand what you mean, but what you said isn't accurate. All coins tone, all of them.
The accurate way to say what you're trying to get across is that Peace dollars are not generally known to have colorful, pretty, rainbow toning. Some do, but it's not very common.
