I see the question as being to broad. This coin has a lot of toning. My computer picture shows a wider range of colors but when I uploaded it, the picture didn't show better detail. Some collectors prefer toned Lincolns while others like the error coins. My question was trivial. do you prefer the BIE error or a toned Lincoln. The answer will be which ever you prefer to collect. Maybe the Mods can delete the whole topic.

Two different collector bases, I personally prefer BIEs. This one is LDB4-1955S-003B 4FH+ as listed on cuds-on-coins. http://cuds-on-coins.com/ldb4-1955s-2/

I like both toned Lincolns and late die state issues so for me this example is a bonus.

@Grospoisson (how big was the "Poisson"?).

For the LD is a choice of collectors. Not to big premium on those coins. Who like, like. Me I trade them.

When you come to toning is other story: On toning you has big money pay collectors who look for. In general a toning coin to have value and wish must have all spectrum, which is find in silver, gold small and big diameter coins. The Nickel has some nice but less. Your coin is bronze, less wish in temporary toning coin, because with time will go to deterioration of the coin. In order to preserve this toning, you has to vacuum the coin and the price for this action bypass the price you can have for the coin.

This it is. Do not forgot that the toning it is an action of the environment, and will do not stop by self. To preserve the toning cost about 250$.

Your conclusions.

I agree, two totally different collector bases. The BIE's are a mint event, while toning by many is considered damage, and as Silvosi has pointed out, toning is/can be an ongoing event. Which do you prefer, apples or oranges?

That's a nice analogy, although unlike fruit, BIEs and toned coins are not mutually exclusive. I think BIEs are more of a niche area of collecting, while beautifully toned cents have a wider appeal and can sometimes bring the big bucks.
