Here is a mention of officially recognized toning particular to the Lincoln cent:

"...When the Lincoln Cent was introduced in 1909, it was discovered that the coining dies and their curved fields were unable to be polished to proof coining condition by existing Mint equipment. In order to produce Proof coinage for collectors, the US Mint adopted the French technique of the Matte Proof, which was thought to highlight the design, while leaving the details of the coin as the designer intended. This was done by a sandblasting of the dies, prior to use. When struck by the high pressure hydraulic press of the Philadelphia Mint Medal Room, the result was a semi-rough surface, a gentle luster and strongly defined wide square rims. These coins were produced in very small numbers, and the dies quickly developed small marks, known as diagnostics. These marks are used today by Third Party Graders and Collectors to authenticate the coin. Sold for mere pennies over face during the years of production, they were not popular with collectors. When new, the coins were wrapped in a tarnish proof tissue, which over time proved to be anything but. Since many of these coins sat for decades unsold, vivid colors and toning developed. It is not unusual to see vivid blues, greens, lavender, coppery orange, deep reds and purple hues on these coins. Eagerly collected by numismatists today, they are among the most valuable Lincoln cents."

2000 ASE. I bought this coin in 2000 and it has been kept in a flip. Pretty heavily toned.

I must be retarded...I just dont get the toned thing...to me,after reading descriptions of how to grade coins it seems to me that toned coins are damaged coins.But Im keeping an open mind,I will agree some of the coins are pretty cool! I just dont think they should be worth a premium just because they are toned...they should be worth less.

I'm sure you won't get kicked off the forum. It's your opinion, and you're entitled to it. However, the opinions of many others are different and natural toning does not damage the coins. Natural and attractive toning will always command a premium. Look on eBay and other sites and you can see common date toned Morgans selling for multiples of their blast white counterparts due to the high demand for toners.

I have noticed that toned coins are very hot on eBay and at auction houses,going for some pretty high premiums,but I think its a fad,just like I collect guitars too and the fad right now is buying new guitars that appear to be aged with artificial means of making them look vintage.Its a fad right now and pretty soon people well come to their sences and stop paying high prices for these items. Ok...I will kick myself off now! LOL
