There is NO PAINT on these '82's, '84's or 1859's that you have shown here and previously. Anything dark or black is toning or chemical reaction to having been exposed to different substances, either liquid or solid or airborne. Anything appearing to be "yellow" that you have shown is a physical removal of the surface toning and you are seeing the bronze that the coin is made of and being scraped off by cleaning or scratching. A combination of way overdone lighting and massive magnification makes your photos appear to be something that they are not. Again, there is no paint anywhere on the coins you've shown for the last 2 years. Rocky, you should stop posting items that are not true.

Look at any bronze statue in the entire world and you will see that it's brown, chocolate brown or nearly black. None of those colors are because of paint. It the natural patina forming on the surface of the base metal .. in this case, bronze. Your coins are a combination of patina, grime, grunge, dirt and oils .... nothing else.

I agree totally with Bill on this Rocky.

There was no paint used with the minting of Canadian large cent coins, if your coins have paint on them someone other than the ( RCM or employee's of) painted them.

That color is raw bronze showing at a place that has had the patina/surface scraped off. I don't think that they are bubbles ... I think that it is from the die itself where the insides of the design itself is rough. On the die, the lettering, design, and digits are recessed, having been compressed into the planchet.
