All coins are photographed with a 22 MP DSLR Canon Camera to assure purchasers an accurate view of what they will receive.
All Toned Silver Coins were stored in my family’s Concord grape winery cellar at Put-in Bay, Ohio since 1963-1984 and are recently being cataloged and listed.
The toned coins are a result of being wrapped in tissue paper stored in cardboard boxes that were placed near the barrels of aging wine.
I accidentally discovered the toning is natural for the storage conditions which are very unique.
Color mottling (color spots) especially in the coins field is normal for toned coins stored in the above stated conditions as the coins age and tone much faster than if stored in a conventional manner.
Due to the storage conditions as stated above, having a coin graded MAY result with the coin being identified as having abnormal toning even though the conditions of storage were unusual but perfectly natural and are market acceptable.
I do not guarantee that the toned coins will be graded as natural and can not give refunds for this reason. Generally only coins with a value over 250.00 should be sent in for grading.
As an additional “Thank you” a Toned bonus coin is sent with each purchase and a purchase of two or more coins is shipped free by USPS
I welcome constructive response "positive and negative" as mistakes are sometimes made.
