Lets not care HOW it got toned...just that it IS toned and beautiful.

As a collector, I do care how they got that way.
Of course, I also care if they have been cleaned, lasered, puttied, thumbed, or messed with in any other way. I like original surfaces, period. JMHO.

Wow those are truly some nice coins. I've been drooling over every single one of them. But there's a shortage of water here is Southern CA so I should stop.

Here is BadThad's explanation: Toning is caused by exposure to hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The sulfur reacts with the metal surface to form the corresponding metal + sulfur. Light refracts differently based on the thickness of the layer. It's kind of like how light + water droplets form a rainbow. The book Coin Chemistry details H2S and its role in toning very well, it's worth a read.
Just for fun, I placed a 1964 Unc Washington quarter outside of a window, and I'm waiting to see if it shows any signs of toning. BTW, very nice nickels Southern Yankee. Those are some nice proofs.

I recently got an album full of Rosies. Nothing too special, but some of them had some really nice golden toning. I'll probably post them later when I get the chance. Okay here's one of the Rosies. Has excellent eye appeal and the reverse has some really nice golden toning:
