Very nice. I think I remember looking at this one for my toned Morgan Date Set and really liked it. Unfortunately, I had bought an 1880 just days before. Happens everytime.

I just LOVE those golden reverses. Turns a garden variety Morgan common date coin into a true work of art, IMHO.
I find the reverse toning a bit distracting, to be honest.
However, you buy coins for you not me, so congrats on your NEWP and I hope you enjoy the coin for years to come and in good health.
Can someone please explain on why y'all love toning so much? Or is it mostly personal preference? I think it makes a coin look.....dirty? for lack of better words.
In my opinion... SHINY is goooooooood!
There are a lot of Common Cents, but Common Sense is becoming very hard to come by..........
Toners can look VERY different coin to coin, so you can get alot of variety within the same series. If you have hundreds of coins of a similar grade from the same series, all flashy and shiny and silvery, and perfect looking, well.... They tend to all look the same. Gets old after a while. I have 80+ Kennedy proofs, mostly all PF69UC, while a great looking coin IMHO, I am kinda bored from the perfect camero proof coin right now.
Maybe that's why people with hot spouses tend to get caught with other people, shiny and silvery/white perfection can get boring.
Besides which, most methods of today, which would be utilized to remove that tarnish, if done improperly; and in the majority of cases is done by inexperienced people, would do more harm than good.
