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.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...DI%26otn%3D2
And nice coins, eagle1, I like the strong doubling on that Lincoln.
