1851 $5.00 PCGS MS61

This is one of the mostly wildly toned Liberty Head gold coins that I've seen in a long time. My guess is that this piece was in a leather pouch for many years and the obverse and reverse have vivid coppery and purple-gold hues that are well-contrasted by the underlying green-gold hues. I am not charging much of a premium for this color (I recently sold a CAC/PCGS 1851 half eagle for a hundred bucks less) but I have the feeling that if this were a common date Morgan dollar with this degree of color it would bring an enormous premium.
