    Amateurish but shiny. Goes to show you how slow developing elevation chromatics are a valuable tool for toning identification. One layer almost ways equals applied even if accidental.

    beauty is the eye of the beholder, fwiw. it sure does look nice starting with the reverse, i get it

  • I'm not a toning guy. When I see those youtube videos where people dip and heat coins to tone them, I cringe.
    It just seems like irreparable damage to me.

    IMO a fresh pile of vomit looks better than that. RGDS!

    Sorry, no. It does not look “nice.” It is hideous. Let’s hope really collectible coins, which have limited supply, don’t have this done to them.

    It would be interesting to see the results of dipping this coin to see if the AT can be removed without showing any visible damage to this coin's surfaces.

    Not for me.

    I kinda like the violet color between the electric blue and the untoned sections. Would look good on a motorcycle...not so much on a Peace $.

    To each his own, I suppose.

    For some reason, I thought the OP's tongue was firmly planted in his cheek...

    Hideous looking coin and I like nice toning. Artificial toned coins just don't look right. Heres some nice toners.

    Now those are some nice toners. Congrats and thanks for showing. Sorry but OP's coin is hideous and I like toning. I do not understand why AT guys spend so much time on Peace$, they do not tone well and when they do, they look nothing like NT coins. JMO

    Here's an AT coin I consider attractive and desirable.

    @jesbroken you mean NT at the end of your statement. Typo. Thanks those are part of my Roosevelt dime set.

    I have been collecting coins since 1961. That is probably the worst looking coin that I have ever seen.

    Ben ? To much spangleing, try a little more red glare, and keep it down wind. I can't see.
