    So I've had this for a while cause I liked the toning, but I looked a little closer and I'm wondering if the toning was caused by, well a torch is my first guess. Thanks for your time, and I question this because there's blisters all over the coin. Obverse and reverse and I am somewhat thinking it may have been played? Let me know! received_535925953651990.jpeg received_2704652546259904.jpeg 20191109_235839.jpg 20191109_235820.jpg 20191109_235731.jpg

    Was it stored in that plastic case? Was there something in the case to hold the coin in place? The toning looks almost normal and I'm wondering if the spots are from PVC.

    I'm wondering if the coin was subject to heat. That might be the cause for the toning and the blisters.

    Looks like it was gold plated.

    Yes it's been in that case, I was just going through coins and putting them in 2x2s, but I have other coins with PVC on them and these are the same color as the coin, not white like my others

    That's what I was thinking, some of the blisters have holes in them

    Since the coin is 90% silver, why would it "blister" upon heating? Clad, maybe yes, but solid 90%, I don't think so.

    A very good point.
