Hard to tell from the photos, as they look a bit dull and dark, but if it's brighter with a colorful halo of toning it would be a winner in my book.

Looks really good, is it common in that grade though?

Just pulled the trigger on this one:

Those 1957 nickels are tougher than people think in high grade, well struck and clean proof condition...even the available ones are semi-one sided cameos...I had a real nice, sharp struck example in 2012 I sold it....

The 1925 is common in almost every grade, NGC has graded over 55,000 and there are more than 4,000 in MS-65.

Some of those have some really nice toning.:applause:

Thanks Bob! I've been contemplating putting toned ones in replace of the ones that aren't. Should I leave it as is or add some more color to replace the ones that aren't toning?

If it were mine, I would probably leave it as is, but that is just the way I am. If I were a bit more OCD, (or less lazy), I think I would try to match the toning on all of the coins as much as possible. That would be the nicer looking choice, in my opinion.
