I'm wondering about the desirability of this type of condition. I have taken photos with varying light in order to try and capture the tone and colors.

I picked out this Mint Set especially for the odd toning of this 1971-S penny. The Halves, quarters, nickels and dimes have a frosted/satin look to them. Overall, disappointing looking Mint Set, but this penny was unusual and did not match the condition of the other pennies in the set.

Am I wrong to say that it seems to be fairly evenly toned? With some areas having different colored highlights?
I like it. Some of the Proofs I've been dealing with recently have very splotchy toning. Not such a fan.

Chafemasterj,

Yes, I would say that it is mostly, evenly toned. Tilting the coin to the light reveals various colors. Mostly a green-brown from a distance.

There is a bit of wood grain to it, as well. Could this feature be on the original planchit?

I think a woody Proof would be awesome but I can't say that I've ever seen one.
Anyone have a good image of one?

I wonder if a woody Proof planchet would pass inspection. Or am I deranged to think they get looked at that thoroughly?

A woody proof might not pass, but this is a mint set coin.

Just checked....I don't have a 1971-S toner. So, I'd say, it's a very desirable coin!
