Just added them
I have no idea I bought it from someone at a yard sale but it was in a case
Not to mention it's just a 4-year-old coin. Quite an accelerated toning process.
Neither, its a bullion coin. the stackable silver. problem is they produced 47 million of that type. but the toning did turn out nice even tho its AT. Im not an expert but I do buy a lot of these, am pretty familiar with the prices. without toning.

No I'm not the original owner but I own it now
I leave this to the pros , I'm sure there's a logical explanation. Still, awesome looking
I would keep it, until I sell it, what I do is buy them sometimes with other things, its silver so it always sells, but I keep them until I want something like another coin that may be pricy, then I sell some to buy whatever, because their easily replaceable, but some I guess have good fortune with toned coins. There are several ways to tone them, some use a lamp I guess, sometimes they turn out ugly, lol, and people want a fortune.
If it was in a holder, the edges would get toned first and move inwards.
I have no idea what it was in before I got it, it was in like a plastic sleeve when purchased
The toning is plausible. The rims are green, and a little lighter in shade than the blue away from the rim. From left to right, this is the typical color progression of toning (from Jhon E Cash's website):
The orange-magenta-blue-green progression shown in the middle matches the coin, so it's plausibly natural. How it developed so evenly in only 4 years, I can't tell you. Will a grading service validate it? Maybe. If each time you were to send it, there's a 30% chance (I really don't know what this number is) of it being graded, assuming each grading attempt is independent of the previous, then by the third try, you have a 75% chance of it getting in a graded holder. Call it a game if you will, but it's one that gets played a lot.
If it were mine, I'd compare with other toned ASEs and show it in person to people who deal with this stuff.
