Pictures would help.
Trichloro what? Maybe @desertgem can help you. ~ Chris
Thank you for looking in Longshot.The tarnish/toning is real bad. Sorry and apologize, I don't have a camera suitable to take good pics right now. My bad.
Hey fretboard thanks for checking in! Ya, know what you mean about types of tone. A matter of taste, like fine wine or such. I gotta clue nobody wants this kind of marking on their coin. Sorry I don't have any pics, but will get a suitable camera shortly to upload pics. My bad.
Ok, thanks a lot!
Hi thomas, thanks for the input. Ya! been doin' sum more research and this stuff don't look good for anybody to mess with.
And they are circulated,newer ones in maybe AU got it, the older coins where not affected.
Hi desertgem! Thanks for looking in on my question! Yup! That stuff don't look good to handle. Plus it doesn't address my problem. Sorry I posted in here without pics. Wasn't prepared. Will post pics as soon as possible with correct camera. Thank you for your support.
Ya, couldn't hardly spell it myself. Thanks for checking! Ya, desertgem has looked in also. Thanks!
Thanks for the tip Pickin, I'll give it a try.
Thanks for the help. Any input is appreciated!
The toning is the least of your problems, there is a huge scratch across the obverse devices. And your coin has the look of a coin that has already been over dipped in the past. That blue/violet toning is the telltale sign of secondary toning. Is this your only coin or are there more?
Oh wow! Thanks for looking Lehigh! I have another one looks about the same way. Didn't even think about it possibly being dipped before I got them. Maybe this is why these two show the ugly toning and the older coins with it don't? I knew they where circulated and was happy to get a couple of bright shiny coins. Is there any positive way to verify they have been over dipped and what would that do to their value?
Your Photos are just fine for the answers you are after.
Thanks Pickin, hopefully get a little better camera soon.
