Yeah–the second one looks more “natural”, but more of a color I expect for an earlier date?
It seems to me there might have been different alloy mixes over the years. I think it’s safe to say this coin has gotten some degree of cleaning–but the color is better than the 3rd pic too. I can’t complain for $7 🙂

For lighting, I’m using an IKEA Jansjo LED light with some diffusion. I’d like to point out–it’s much easier to light an area like the date to bring out maximum detail, than to get the same effect on a whole coin.
