Not a toned collector, but I picked this up in a lot last year. About a dozen of the Buffs I picked up had this same intense album toning.
Excellent!

@Hunter611, decades of sitting in an old album. Not sure about the environment it was stored in. Previous owner inherited them from their father who was a dealer.

A bit older than some out here...
Duchy of Brabant 1637 escalin. This is a half-dollar sized coin, rarely struck uniformly, and rarely found with round planchet. I've photographed it at a slight angle to show the irridescent toning around the edges (thereby putting some parts of it a bit out of focus), which goes nicely with with the "gunmetal" patina in the center.

It's a common as common can be. I shelled out $1.50 for this nicely toned 1968-D Roosevelt dime. It doesn't have the look of an obviously artificially toned coin.

I've been clicking through this thread trying to learn more about toned coins and came across my post from 2015:

http://goccf.com/t/53247&whichpage=58#2092635

It was determined that my "toning" was from some sort of fluid like soda or something, recent, and for the most part dismissed as undesirable.

Now....... based on some of the opinions I have read here, doesn't the SOURCE of the toning not matter? Even fake (aka: made for resale) toned coins seem somewhat accepted, at least to some collectors.

I am confused... people like that rainbow toning, yet if that toning is recent and not made by decades of time, it is BAD. But other people have shared modern coins with toning, and they are GOOD.

Befuddled, bewildered, discombobulated... not to mention confused...

Thanks, jbuck.

I appreciate it that you take the time to look at the coins people post and comment on so many of them.
