Love that color on the 1952, I bet if it was rotated that purple color would sparkle a little...in my experience anyway...nice coin!!

Thank you.  Yes,  it's mostly blue and purple head on.  This is a different pic

The images on the bottom corners are of the original wrapper that came with it. 

Original wrappers are important. Period. The History with that is Special. You should see if NGC's paper document affiliate or any 3rd party paper grader can intomb that for you.

Just got this today, my first graded world coin (if Canada counts!).  Any love for these beauties around here? The toning on this one and the several others I shopped around for is amazing for the price!

Had one similar for years then sold it, I loved that coin, used it as the "go to example" while researching...cherry picking....a twelve year old bought it for less than I did when I let it go...I figured why not.....peace

Here's one I got from a recent Heritage auction.  I had no intention to bid, but happened to log on right as the lot was coming up and realized the color had some potential.  I accidentally bid live (hah!) and somehow it landed in my mailbox.  It's my FOURTH one of this date, but if any coin is my ultimate weakness, it is the Japanese 50 sen double phoenix.  They come in frosty blast white all the way to star-slabbed color.  This one is a mere straight 67, but I do not regret the buy one bit.  My excuse...'I need to learn to photo colors better'.  Favorite coin, awesome tarnishing ;) .   Hopefully the photos are uploading in higher res these days.  Edited to add, nope the resolution is degraded some.  I still don't know why that is--is there a setting on my end or the forum end?  Ah well, the pretty colors are still there.
