    Tough decision. No2 has superb surfaces. Looks MS67. But I’m a rainbow guy, so my bias is for the color.

    I like the rainbow tone better.

    I think #1 has gone too far.

    I like the toned better. Would take either one, especially with the doubled eye error!

    There isn't much difference in the steps. I would go with #2 despite the toning on 1. It has much less contact and better luster.

    @BlackberryPie nice pick up on the eye.

    I love the toning but I'm just a blast white kind of guy. I'll go with #2.

    It looks like Jeffie took one on the chin, but I still like #2 more.

    #2. Love toned Jeffersons. #1 has great luster and brilliance, but I will always go for toning.

    Both are very nice! But my eye tends to lean towards the color rather than blast white.

    Every blast white coin looks like every other blast white coin. <Yawn>

    I'll take the pretty toning any day, and even the toning when it isn't so pretty. Gives a coin character and personality.

    #1 for me.

    You got your numbers wrong, I think.

    No. 1 for me.
    2 appears more lustrous and better defined steps but I don't like the scratch through his chin.

    2/ MS 65
