Wow guys! There are some fantastic looking examples here. Take "toning" with a pinch of salt. Beautiful colors are good as well. Here is a Japanese 1000 Yen which has toned along the lines of improper annealing.

Ok - I don't have many toned coins but here's a Trajan close up with the beginning of some lovely red! As it's Trajan (very military emperor), I almost think of this as 'blood' like 😂 I'll check my collection, and see if I can come up with other fun toned pieces to contribute.

I like pastel toning. You are correct, I have found that whenever a thread is started with a theme, it makes one look at coins differently and you re-discover coins that have not been looked at for a while.
