    55-d hands down.

    I think I could actually like some AT coins, but not this one.

    Lincolns look best natural IMHO.

    I always considered that albums should show the examples that reflect the originality of a coin.
    Plus, the toning would just stick out too much compared to the other pieces in the album.

    Personally, it depends on what the rest of the coins in the album look like. If the rest of your album has problem/toned coins, then I'd choose the 35D. If it's original color/normal color, then I'd go with the 55D until I could find a decent UNC 1909 or 1909 VDB (which wouldn't be that expensive) because, even though a nice 55D is a good example of an UNC Lincoln, it's just not as "cool" as a 1909 IMO.

    The original post was just a rhetorical question. '55 without a shadow of a doubt.

    Not even I would be crazy enough to pick the 35-D

    The '35-D is cool, even if it is AT (and it's pretty obviously cooked).

    But yeah, I'd have to go with the '55-D.

    Looks like this contest isn’t even close. :p

    It’s a bit funny that the listing that I bought the 1935-D from mentioned that the coin was in an old album and seemed natural enough to the seller to send in for grading! I didn’t see it as natural but thought it was worth the ~$9 that I spent.


    For those wondering about the other coins in my album, I have a link to the thread in my original post.
