Yes, this is normal. It has toning or a patina. I've owned several of these.

It's not a satin finish before or after the toning.

it's not a normal finish it's more of a satin like surface. The reverse is the proof type with broken Ray's and straight g. 🤔

Your coin is not satin finish, nor proof finish, not SMS finish and it does not have a transitional reverse. If you still don't believe me post it somewhere else.
