Sorry the images are so big. But I hope you like the coin and toning.

Here a Ngc graded MS-65 1964-D Roosevelt toned well but I am not sure if my photo show the colors off as well as in hand.
destined for tombage...
Nice pickup! They are getting harder and harder to find.
New from a PCGS forum member.
Are those twins or the same coin?
That's PCGS True View with no software modification?
lol. In my opinion, True-Views are the largest offenders of photo juicing when it comes to toned coins. I have a true photo of my coin that even I cannot come close to replicating, even with massive software adjustments.
Lol, Ok because that photo/coin HAS to be juiced to the max. Those coins look darn near painted.........or irradiated....
While I agree that some PCGS Truviews are unrealistic, that is what toned proof Lincolns look like in hand. I have a 1961 that looks almost exactly like that and sold a 1937 with a very similar appearance. However, they are very difficult to photograph.
Not true at all. If you are shooting the coin through a slab 99% of the time you won't get close
However, if you are shooting the coin raw, you aren't doing it correctly if you can't come close.
This was taken through the slab. I could have gotten even closer to the TrueView image if the coin were raw.
This is mine with the TrueView photo under.
Your statement couldn't be further from the truth. If you saw one in hand you would think differently.
Coins like this don't need software help, they are naturally juiced. If you could photograph them without the glare of the slab, this is what they look like.
The biggest difference is that a photo is 2D. To get an even better idea you have to see it in hand. These coins are amazingly reflective with neon colors.
These I believe. They look great!!! The previous two look like their photo was taken through colored glass with blurry details. Would love to see an original undoctored photo of those.
Unfortunately these are now in slabs, so I can't duplicate the photo due to slab glare.
I have them both in hand, or at least in front of me, as I am typing this and believe me those colors are right on.
