I would like to bring the attention of the toning of coins/medals. Is that more valuable or less valuable after toning? Toning can be naturally or artificial. This is article of Gainesville about toning which states that many kinds of toning occur naturally as a coin ages, avid collectors actually prefer toned coins. Since this discoloration can increase a coin's value, many dealers will attempt to replicate these effects to make coins appear to look like a Rainbow Toned Morgan Dollar. http://www.gainesvillecoins.com/tips/48/signs-of-artificial-toning-on-coins.aspx Another good article about toning which states advance collectors love toning rather than beginner collectors. This is support by former ANA president "People buy the color, experience, life of the coin, not just the technical grade," says Bob Campbell, former ANA president and coin dealer who sells toned coins. "Beginning collectors like blazing white coins. More advanced collectors like beautifully toned coins." http://coinsguide.reidgold.com/toning.html I do not like white spot BUT natural appropriate toning is valuable for me BUT might by a junk to others. :lol: Always personal preference.
