Ha, a familiar name on the new boards.

As always I never get tired of seeing this. Do you know where this resided before Amon Carter? How long was it in his posession and what kind of storage caused this great toning. Was the toning before or during the Amon Carter ownership?

Sorry for all the questions but curious minds want to know. Approve

I have not tracked the coin prior to its appearance in the 1984 Stacks sale of the Amon Carter collection.  Amon and Amon Jr kept their coins in custom made holders that were rich in sulpher ... they are known for their periphrial blue toning and golden centers. 
 
Carter coins are immediately identifiable by dollar specialists and highly sought after!

Do you know if they still make they sulpher rich holders? I would love to try this on a couple of Proof Silver Eagles. Big smile

If the results were so nice, I'm surprised that more people aren't asking this question.  Especially in regards to the ASE, since even if you destroyed a coin it would still retain it's bullion value.

I was kind hoping you'd get one, but I guess not.  That toning is faboo, too bad the secret remains hidden.  I wouldn't need it to tone fast since I'm still relatively young, even if it took decades, I can wait!

PCGS is pretty picky about AT (artificial toning), but they seem to look the other way if it came from the holder. Believe it or not the sulphur in the older Whitman books used to do the same sort of thing.

But remember that this might also me called ED - environmental damage! But once its in a PCGS slab, its called "beautiful toning"

Check this out if you like toning...
