Less common dates for toning

While I tend to like toning on any date, I have managed to pick up a few of the less commonly encountered (coin might still be common but the level of toning is not). Please post your examples.

Here is an 1890-O in MS 63 with the type of toning you're more likely to find on the 83-O to 85-O date range:

    Great post. Not a blazer like some of the monsters above, but I think a tougher O date to have any color as well as decent reverse strike.

    1960's date Franklin Half Dollars

    The longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice is it possible for an empire to rise without His aid? Benjamin Franklin

    The 1935-S is usually never attractively toned.
