    nice one!

    pretty rare to see a nice toner like this in a TV where the toning isn't POPPING. looks like it was just imaged normally which is good because anyone unfamiliar can see how great toning can lay underneath/at the edge of brown haze. it is actually pretty common.

    I thought about that one for my set, but I think mine is still pretty nice.

    @Maywood... I have never seen an SBA tarnished like that. Certainly a unique appearance.
    Cheers, RickO

    @ricko, I suspect it's from spending a long time in a Dansco type album. I've found several nicely toned SBA's in albums although the proofs usually tone nicer and quicker. The best albums for such things, unintended when they were designed/manufactured, seem to be Littleton Coin Albums.

    The best for keeping things as issued seem to be Intercept Shield or the OGP. Below are my 1979-P(narrow rim) and 1979-S with similar tone in color and appearance.

    @Maywood... They are indeed similar... particularly the reverse. While I am not a fan of tarnish, I will say, those SBA's are improved by the condition. ;) Cheers, RickO
