@MrJ I don't think I've ever searched one of those!.gif" class="inlineimg" alt="" title="" />

All I can say at this point is that I have definitely seen cents with one side toned and one side not, and I have definitely also seen them with that different gold color. However you are right in that if it is that color on one side then it usually is the same on both.

I looked for some examples tonight (I know I have one or two somewhere) but only found one like that on both sides. If I find one I will post it

@cointree, not sure why someone would do this...

Just to be clear, I meant I thought about buying them in order to break them out of the acrylic like you, not "acrylicize" them!

I've seen a lot of silver Kennedys and proof sets in acrylic for cheap on eBay and thought about doing that. Maybe I would for silver dollars!

Hi @MrJ, Since you found this one in change, I have no idea where it came from, but I have coins like that - toned on one side and not the other. Most of the ones I have came from an old album the coin had been sitting in for years/decades and generally the exposed (obverse typically) side is toned whereas the reverse is not. I have also seen the opposite of this where the reverse is more toned, but that seems rarer.

My guess is that something similar happened with this coin meaning it sat somewhere for a long time where one side was exposed to a very different environment from the other. This also makes me think it is natural toning since it would be hard to do that with direct heat (although I am sure it could be done) and because the toning is more subtle and natural looking on your coin (at least to me) than on the artificially toned ones.

It appears to have been struck-thru something - could be anything like plastic or a piece of metal. It is also possibly just PMD but it doesn't look like your typical dent.

I think all of the 1980 SBAs were like that. It was only 1979 that had some with a "wide rim" that was different for that year.

Unlisted 1973 D Kennedy Half DDR?

It does look odd to me as well. I was interested because I have a couple of the 1974-D Kennedy DDO coins, but they have very obvious doubling on the obverse. Your 1973-D reverse looks very similar to the Variety Vista 1974-D DDR. The only difference I can see is that what looks like MD on the VV 1974-D DDR is on the right side of the letters in DOLLAR and on your 1973-D it is on the left side.

I do see on the VV 1974-D DDR what looks like may be doubling apart from the MD on the D, O and first L of DOLLAR where I see extra thickness, but if that is the actual doubling, then I agree, that is confusing.

That looks like a pretty typical 1962 proof cent to me. And it is in the correct packaging for a 1962 proof set.

I look at a lot of them, and I see them turn a lot of interesting colors in those sets, especially around the early 1960s. Some, like this one, almost yellow/gold brass looking, others get deep red. I always thought it mostly had to do with how they were stored, but I am sure there are other factors.

The green stuff around the date looks unusual though. I don't think I have seen that before.
