Comments:  When we first looked at this coin we almost passed, then we examined it in more detail and decided to take a chance on it grading because the toning looks like legitimate bag toning.  With New Orleans dollars there is often the mottled look of just gunk on the coins and that is what you see on the reverse of this coin.


But the coin has excellent detail and is a full to nearly full strike, and the obverse device still shows some frostiness.  The coin is free of serious bag marks and the grade seems appropriate if we subtract a little for the poor color.


The crescents and color on the obverse indicate to us a coin that was exposed and re-exposed to reagents that caused the color.
