Recommended Posts

I am working my way through a biscuit tin of mixed world coins. This one has a peculiar look to is and someone commented that it might be woodgrain toning. Now this is a new concept to me. What do others think?

Canada - New Brunswick, One Cent

Obv:- VICTORIA D : G: BRITT: REG : F : D:, Laureate bust left
Rev:- NEW BRUNSWICK, Crown and date within beaded circle, wreath of roses surrounds
Minted - 1861
Reference:- KM#6
Mintage:- 1,000,000

  • maridvnvm changed the title to Woodgrain toning?

Looks like it qualifies as a "wood grain" to me. The style is popular among Indian and Lincoln Cents. I don't see it as often on world coppers.

Thanks I hadn't noticed this...

The Cupro-nickel coins from India certainly are prone from a bad mix as per my 8 anna here's a 2 Anna...Like @Paddy54 I find them quite appealing..20190501_1-2SnGz9xFKZb78RkgT5p37d5BD6nsQH.jpg.e0f62ef4630a34541decc824dfaaa830.jpg

As shown above in many examples, improperly mixed compositions can tone dramatically along the lines of imperfection. Even on silver coins such as this .925 silver/ .075 copper 1000 Yen

@expat....Lovely looking coin!...

The toning seems to have followed the reverse landscape with the blue sky and green vegetative mountain..

Cool coin .

Certainly an extra bonus having such toning, one of my favorite improperly annealed toners

Always a pleasure Steve...Im very glad to have a means that we can communicate.  I'm so happy that this forum has evolved....I was just reading a few BS post over CT ....ragging on those who left. 

Well all I can say is I will support this forum as well its members....I always support my friends and YN's . But my tenure at CT I never once supported the forum. And won't as it's biasly politically unbalanced....and I have no need to support a forum that doesn't fit my belief's. I give you all a hat's off for standing your ground....protecting your friends....and standing up to the BS that is all to offten leveled against those who do not subscribe...! 

Good to see you Steve...you were missed!
