Hey Mike, did you just get this back from PCGS or is it one you are thinking about cracking out. My first response would be "because we say so, now sit down and give us your money".

My second thought is that what they are looking at is the wear, and age of the coin and comparing the color to those factors. I have included an image of an AU 58, there is a big difference in the coloration of the two. Now for me, I see the difference, but what it means I don't know. Also if you had it graded recently, PCGS seems to have over tightened their standards after the great toning debacle, and I think they are afraid of letting anything funky (deference to the FunkMiester here) get by them.

Anyway here is the pic

My guess - remembering pictures can be deceiving - is what appears to be a lighter area on the top of the REV. The picture makes it look like a cleaning or chemical of some sort made this area lighter.

Hey M, the one thing that I can't stand are these kinds of comments on a label, questionable color, why is it questionable. They send you no explanation as to why. I can understand the difference between a 64-65, but this color thing. Also the cleaned/details, like what details, what cleaning, where. But anyway, it is what it is.

I think it looks a little off myself, but we're looking at images.
