Is anyone out there wood grain toning collectors? I myself am pretty new to the scene. In doing a bit of research I found this: http://www.coinbooks.org/esylum_v12n11a07.html I also found this in the community forums https://www.coincommunity.com/forum...PIC_ID=36462


Its interesting to see that they believe the toning is coming from a possible mint error in the mixing of the metals. I can't wait to get my hands on a couple nice examples for my wife :) She is the tone collector.

I have to admit, the woodies have a special appeal that I can rarely resist, no matter what coin it appears on.

I was just wondering today if I put a roll of 50 together if it would sell and for how much.

I started with a coin that had minor lamination issues, chemically toned it quite by accident, photographed it in strong light and then enhanced the colors in post processing.

Beautiful coins! The 81 is a great example of wood toning :)

Oh man, why does this pop up. I'm in the process of downsizing and found some impressive woody coins. I haven't finished documenting what I have!

Meanwhile here are the two that I can think of right now.
