A Year by the Window (updated for 5/23/21)
So this is an experiment I started a year ago on this date. I purchased a Proof 1961 Roosevelt, no cameo and originally blast white, and decided to set it by a south-facing window to see if and how it tones. For under $4.00, it was neat to see how the coin changed color over the year.

May 23, 2020. Purchased a second proof at the time for comparison.

Thanks for checking out my post!
May 23, 2021. I'm beginning to think that toning colors might be seasonal.
