    My very first submission to NGC. I was definitely nervous, since it was bought raw and has some crazy toning. What do you think it graded?

    I have no idea how to grade these...never seen one lower than a 69 in a slab...so I will guess 69

    FYI, there was a time a year or two ago when rainbow toned, certified ASE's would routinely sell for $350, as long as they were straight graded. Now, the market is flooded with them and most fetch $75-$100.

    Considering most graded ASEs, 69 would be the odds-on favorite.

    That, I do not understand. But I guess there’s a lot I don’t understand.

    I pedaled a few between MS65 and MS68 back then, but I don't go near them now. They're everywhere.

    you either value the Toning, or don't.
    For me, I'd rather clean/ restore a toned ASE then watch it rot away. But I avoid them anyways.

    Heh, If this were a Zincoln I would completely agree with rot. ;)

    Being it's round billion the toning can do nothing but increase the value in today's market... I'm at 68 figuring whatever caused the toning also caused a couple of ticks.

    I'll guess MS69 just to find out. I have a personal belief that MS70's only come about from large companies who make bulk submissions.

    68 if they even graded it. They basically flat out refused to grade toned moderns for a long time.

    He said he submitted it recently. It was already toned.

    YES. But they must have gotten on board to get our money.

    You would think they would eventually if they haven’t already.
