Greetings. I usually post in E and V but have a few toned coins. I had read that black toned mercs were of interest. Here is one. Do you all eye candy collectors like these. Thanks Rich

Better pics would help, but it just looks like severe tarnishing to me, especially on the reverse.

Dark toning is often avoided because damage can easily be hidden.
I had an 1894 Morgan and for that reason PCGS wouldn't slab it.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Usually the ones with black toning are of interest if the bust is still a silverish color. It gives it a cameo effect that some people do indeed find quite attractive.

I can state with certainty that if I had a coin with a "black and white" cameo effect, it would sell before a plain silver coin of the same grade/date/mm. As well as for a significant premium. Mind this is for coins that grade vf and better.

People, would you use this as a pocket piece in hopes of getting that camo look?

I'm not a fan of "tarnish" on my coins.
