Restitutor Posted May 24 · Administrator Share Posted May 24 I’ve been noticing for a while now, a number of my coins have begun to tone at what I feel is a rapid pace. I’m a little bit concerned that these coins, many of which came as toneless silver, have turned into rainbows! I hope y’all can calm my nerves that this is totally normal and not to worry, and that toning doesn't actually take nearly as long as I thought it would (I was thinking it took coins decades to tone) because I'm a tad stressed about this at the moment😅 Before (Jul 2022):Now: Before (Jul 2022):Now: Before (Jul 2022):Now: This one isn’t as extreme but if you look closely you’ll see the signs are starting on it in his hair. Before (Jul 2022):Now: And saving the best for last, my most extreme: Auction House Photo (Sep 2020):Now: I keep all these coins on an Abafil tray. Blue velvet. They’re “exposed” only in that I don’t cover the tray with anything. House is usually kept around 69°. They do get direct sun light for a few hours a day based off their location in my office, although for all of these coins the obverse and reverse sides are toning at about an equal pace, despite the obverse side being the "visible" side probably 85% of the time. Would you be concerned? 8 1 2 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
