How is a price applied to Toned coins ? In a common date I guess the collector is paying the premium for just the fact that's it's toned?


I may be wrong, but there is no set price for toned coins. Some people would pay less for toned coins, and some people would pay huge premiums. It all depends on if the toning is natural or artificial, how attractive it is, and if the people interested in buying the coin likes toning.

I personally like attractive and natural toning, but there are some types of toning I do not really like. I've seen many common dates go for gigantic prmiums just because of the way it was toned. A good example is this 1881-S Morgan. This is one of the most common Morgans, with many high grades, but they are selling it for $850 because of the toning. Hope this helps.

And nice coins, eagle1, I like the strong doubling on that Lincoln.

Ahh I see that's what I though, I'd never pay that kind of premium for toning I see that. I guess if I like it and the price is in the untoned range I am good to go.

Although I wouldn't pay that much for that Morgan, I'd probably pay a premium for a toned coin that really appeals to me. Here's one that is ok, the pics make it look really bad, but in hand it isn't terrible. And sorry for the bad pics, I can't find my loupe.

Wow, very nice coins, Moe. That bust half is really nice. Here's a nice Mercury that I found in my Dansco. It has nice crusty toning:

Here are some pics of a few toned Lincoln's that I have.
I put them in rows so as not to have to take so many individual pics.

As usual, pics don't do justice to the in hand beautiful toning on these coins.

Here's one of the few toned coins I own, too bad the reverse isn't as nice as the obverse.

My skills are improving but still awful. The 52 is a tie dye of color. Nice surface but looks almost splochy in the pictures because I was fighting so hard with the lighting.

















The 1848 just shows drab, whole coin is a deep purple and super deep chocolate Obverse and reverse show the tone.. Just so smooth and deep I adore this coin. Like every other post in this whole thread. These coins are among the prides in my collection but my photography is terrible.

Those are some nice coins. They all probably look even better in hand. The pic doesn't really show this awesome wheat well. Thanks RFB!
