Wood-Grain toning

Recommended Posts

I've seen coins classified as wood-grain toned. Sometimes its a little ugly and a glorified term for streaking. But in this case, I kind of like it. It's not preferable but I wouldn't mind it

 

1909-S VDB Cent from Heritage.

I like that one, it's quite subtle. I have one that is quite a bit darker, this particular photo captured it not too badly. In hand the lustre is more red/orange and less brown though.

Wow that is great toning. What causes it? Improper mixing in the planchet?

 

I hope more people see this thread and add their wood grain toned coins.
