C7554- 1860 PROOF SEATED LIBERTY QUARTER NGC PF65* STAR RAINBOW - 1000 MINTED sold in a cheap auction $2750. From avc-numismatics (new, ending, sold). The seller relisted it, so maybe the winning bidder didn't pay for it: 391646916990.

Verify NGC certification number 4196976-004

Search Google for ngc 4196976-004

Search ebay for ngc 4196976-004: new, completed, sold.

The toning is a muddy brown color in ordinary lighting. The right lighting is critical to show the "true colors" of a beautifully toned coin. I wonder how many coins sell too cheaply on ebay due to crappy photography and lighting. It might be profitable to invest in better lighting to resell beautifully toned coins for more money on ebay.

I like rainbow tone

I'm finding these with the toned coin searches at the bottom of my badon's ebay spam filter links and custom searches (BESFLACS) list. Usually there is at least one that sells each day. I'm only posting coins that are certified natural toning, to eliminate fake artificial toning, and I'm also only posting the ones that actually sell so we can get an idea of how much the coins are worth. There are lot of nice coins on ebay, but some of them might be overpriced, so seeing a lot of sold ones really helps get an idea of how much you can expect to pay for a coin you really like.

The important thing to remember is beautifully toned coins are completely unique. After it is sold, you may never see it again. If you want to get one of the coins, you can contact the seller and ask him to broker a deal with the new owner. The real joy of collecting such uniquely toned coins is you will never see another one like it. It's a work of art that you may get 1 chance in a lifetime to own, if you're lucky.

That reminds me, I should record the seller too, so people can track down the coins if they really want to.

Very impressive coins, saybia and sgcoins. Were they expensive? Did you have to pay more to get them because of the attractive toning colors?

Most of the coins I did get from ebay or local auctions, and I payed less then the catalogue value. only the 1885 ½ Cent and the 1907 5 cent coin, I had to pay more. But with a toning like this I'm happy to do so !!!

Thanks.  I just paid a regular price for the eagles and toning did not factor into it.  The Cuban I got from family among others that I have bought online or from freinds.  I like collecting Cuban coins.  The 1953 is my favorite.  It was actually made in the USA in Philidelphia.  Back then the US would mint a lot of coins for Cuba.  Its the same size as the American silver dollar.  Its a commemorative coin celebrating the birth of Jose Marti.  He was the George Washington of Cuba.  After 100 years, in 1953 Cuba decided to make a special set of coins and a bill celebrating his birth. The set consisted of a Peso, 50 cent, 25 cent, 1 cent, & 1 Peso Bill.
