Golden Beauty. I've found a couple of gold toned shield cents from obw rolls as roll enders. I've never seen one like this it takes the cake


If you'd like to see videos they are on Instagram @shieldcentmatt
If you'll comment AT of environmental damage
1st- In videos luster flows perfectly with the toning
2nd- color progression is spot on when compared to a toned color chart for coins
3rd- clearly no signs of environmental damage at all and clearly no sign of heat fire damage as well
4th- AT no signs of that either
5th- the spots you'll see are from the wash when they cleaned the planchets this common on most shield cents that the wash doesn't fully come off the Planchet

Glue residue
In hand it's clearly not glue residue u know what that looks like that would be obvious. I've posted videos on my Instagram and there is a upclose one with a loupe. Instagram is shieldcentmatt check out the second video in the post it's close up and 100% not glue residue

How can you tell the coin wasn't heated?

@Cdncoins

That would be like saying how can you tell Mechanical Doubling from a doubled die simple.
I've tried heating shield cents up before flame right to the coin or letting it hover over the coin inches away there is clear damage always seen when it is heated very clear to notice. I've got a up close video on my Instagram yet again @shieldcentmatt check it outs. No evidence that seen that would make one think heat damaged it at all.

Also try to tone a shield cent like this yourself you won't get it bc I've found other goldish toners like this in obw of the same date 2020, 2021 etc ofc but it only affected the fields a bit still noticeable. PCGS in the future for sure

And I'd like to add as well shield cents are so different from the Pennie's that we've know 2009 and below. They are so different. Design wise the die design used on the front it changes everything. Looking at memorials you don't see them looking like shield cents in original bank wrapped rolls bc the design is more robust so it affected the Planchet and how it looks more compared to a shield cent. They are very different and it's a new era of the penny we need to forget everything we know about the penny.
When we think about anything doubled dies or toners thinking about what we've seen in the past won't help bc the shield cent is a completely different penny. We've got rethink everything we know about the penny and restart fresh at 2010.
Just a little rant not really specific to my post but it make sense and I've always thought about this and I always say this. I'm a very niche collector on a modern modern coin and this is all I collect I do want to start writing some little papers educational tools bc I've seen a lot like comparing them to memorial doubled dies etc milt eh same at all. Evrythjng is different about it

Sorry, I disagree. This is not toning, it's chemical damage.

I agree with this assessment by BadThad.
Something was poured on this coin. Something with a thick viscosity. the event horizon if the 'toning' is to perfect to be natural toning.

Also note that it is contained within the rim of the coin as if the rim acted as a dam holding in the stuff - Notice that the 'toning stops right AT the rim but does not go over it or past it.

My apologies for the lighting. This is my toned, albeit artificially, LSC. The colours are hard to capture with my camera. I heated the coin up in a toaster oven. There wasn't any damage, but I did get some nice vivid colours in the light. I'm not saying your toners aren't legit, I just personally wouldn't pay a premium for them when I can make my own at home.

I think this toning is pretty cool!

But looking at the color progressions, I agree with Dearborn, something with high viscosity was poured onto this coin and later removed to reveal the toning.

That is the result of a liquid hitting the coin and chemically altering the color. As said, if you like it, great. To me, its just a damaged spender.
