I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea but I find it interesting. I didn't notice in online auction photos but when I got this I noticed you can see individual fibers on the surface.



Many happy BST transactions

    That is cool.
    Think of the time it spent in a government canvas mint bag in a storage area.
    Decades and decades.

    You are correct that this toning is not my cup of tea. But I also find it interesting with those fiber lines and would keep it. I do not think this is the normal Morgan bag toning because the textile pattern is larger and/or spacing is bigger. If you check some textile toners you may notice a difference. A different type of bag used?

    Here is one from internet search and link to AB collection website with others.

    Do these carry any premiums?
    I have a chance to buy one at my LCS?

    A slabbed Morgan, too.

    Textile toners have premiums. The vibrant rainbow examples like posted by @lilolme have large premiums. The more plain examples that show the pattern but don't have bright colors (like the original post) tend to carry only a minor premium (more as a curiosity since many toner collectors tend to pass on those).

    That's a fascinating coin in the OP.
    Not like any I've seen before.

    Q: Can textile toning be faked?

    I have a CC GSA with textile and have posted it here before....would do now but too lazy to dig it out for pics. Old pics died with old computer. :(

    One might be able to mimic textile by placing a coin against the surface of a bag and add sulfur/heat.
    I don't recall seeing a textile toner in a QC holder or with artificial color and the supply of them isn't large, so it is likely not easy to reproduce quickly.
