Hi,
I am working on a BU set of Washington quarters (rather slowly due to the cost). I am very much of the group that does not like toned coins and much prefer the blazing white in my bu collection.

So I recently bought a partial set of BU quarters and this 50 D was tucked in. I was after many of the others in the set and figured I would end up selling the duplicates later. As it so happens, I already have a 50 D that I prefer.

But I thought this one was nicer than most toned coins I usually see, so I was hoping for some opinions. I am ignorant when it comes to toning, but I would assume that if it appeals to me more it might appeal to others more too.

I would question whether or not this is natural toning. The colors appear brighter than a naturally toned coin should look, IMO.

It looks artificial, but I'm no expert

I am not an expert, but that certainly looks artificial to me, and in my opinion it's so bright and brilliant that it's kind of unattractive.

It's not natural. The colors shouldn't "flow" over everything like that. Like ErrorCoins222 said they are also really bright.

That coin is most definately artificially toned. Although the order of the colors is "technically" correct, I see no intermediate colors and no blending, characteristics of an AT'ed coin.

I don't give a rats rear end if that is purposeful or accidental toning, it is flipping gorgeous! I would welcome that one into my collection in a heartbeat.

I agree, it looks like AT to me as well.

Artificial or not, that is a beautiful coin I would love to have.

I collect toned Washington quarters. Having said that, I think that is one of the less-attractive examples of a 1950-D. Obviously many here like it, to each their own, but as a collector I wouldn't be interested in purchasing that coin at any price above melt.

The colors are nice, but I wouldn't want them on a coin.

There is one guy on eBay who sells AT ASEs that look just like this one. For the people who like this type of toning, you may want to check him out.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all of your responses. I really appreciate it.
As I said, I'm not really into toned coins and don't know much about them- I certainly believe everyone who said it looks artificial.

I guess I will get rid of it on eBay soon or something, since toned coins are just not my thing (not that they aren't great for others). It doesn't really have a place in my Dansco.
