1950's- 1990's countries do not matter.
These are examples of what I'm looking for.

    That toning may not be market acceptable - meaning it may have been assisted to achieve those colours.

    They are all straight graded and 1 is a Top pop while another is tied for a top pop. Yet another shares a second highest spot with 4 others with only 1 being higher.

    All are PCGS plate coins. PCGS obvious finds them acceptable enough to be on their website.

    I have a 1981 British proof set minus the 1/2 pence that are top shelf. I would sell but it will take a strong offer. See below.

    South Africa coins from 80's and 90's tend to have strong toning, my 1984 set has a few toned coins too:
