Picture of 1964 mint set.................will post as soon as photobucket is back up and running.

 

I believe (was told) that these types of toned coins come from a smoker's home. The JFK is self explanatory. Notice the steel blue of the nickel? It makes a beautiful looking coin but I wonder how the grading services would look upon it? The Lincoln is a much lighter copper color and again looks very nice to the eye! Dime and quarter seem to be untouched by the smoke.

Nice ... proof set?

 

Is that Kennedy 1/2 by any chance an accented hair variety? Hard to tell ... I have one (1964, accented hair) that came with some kind of dried-up glue on the edge in the plastic shrink-wrap. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it completely off by reasonable means, although a few dips did remove some of it.

You have some solid toners

Only thing is, send them into PCGS, they will give them MS67, 66, 65 and sometimes lower

Seems as though they freak out, when any coin, has a different surface than it should

NGC does grade a lot more toners, but I've never seen an NGC toned ASE

 

Nice coins, 68, 69, 70's to me ;)
