Post a coin that’s not “normal.”

For my part in the discussion, peace dollars usually don’t tone nicely.

I'm BACK!!! Used to be Billet7 on the old forum.

    I was working on this coin tonight and these don't usually come the way some think.
    3.1 D small date. The 2 is a large date, now look at the 8. Posted it because the coin and photo's were handy.

    @SimonW... You are correct, they do not tarnish nicely... good example. Cheers, RickO

    How about these 2 from the Morgan 'pancake' series with decent strikes.

    How are you toning these?

    I’m not. Spent a lot of time searching for them. One theory is leather pouch toning. I did try an experiment once where I left several Indian quarter Eagles sandwiched in different types of leather for a year, but none of them changed at all.

    Might it be a slightly higher copper content, or that most prefer untoned gold and have "conserved" their toned pieces? I'm with you, I like the toned look, a lot.

    21-S Morgans don't come attractive, with frosty luster and a crisply detailed strike.

    That's a really nice 1921!

    Civil War tokens don't usually come out like this, but when they do it is a sight to behold:
