Does this toning look natural to you?


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this nickel off Ebay. It was listed as "SMS Toned Nickel". For a few bucks I went for it.


The fiels are highly reflective and it looks like some cameo on the obverse.


Is this toning NT or AT? I can't even come close to deciding. Will try to get a decent shot of the reverse tonight. Need to find my key to the lock box.

It looks natural to me, but can be reproduced with certain chemicals. I've never tried to tone nickel before personally, maybe I'll toss a nickel into the vat at school to try it out, but this look is easily obtained with silver, coppers a little trickier....very reactive. Meh, nice natural coin to me though, although maybe a storage issue like mentioned above.

Neet looking coin. How much was it?


$2. The seller's image was basically a very blurry 2x2 with TONED written on it real big.


The image was darkened to really show off the colors. If I left it "as is" the colors look very light.
