Just watching some classic Mets/Cubs....and the Mets got wood.
Nice. What causes the woodgrain effect?
I have some wood, may even have a few more:
Nice coins. Is the 21 S graded? thats a nice strike for that year.
Got lots a wood!
An improper alloy mix.
so the tin and zinc mixture was off?
Very cool coins!
Never mind...Rlm gave me the answer....
I read somewhere it's impurities in the copper.
Thats about the woodiest i've ever seen badthad. I have a couple decent ones but no good photos. They're hard to photo,I haven't been able to get any pics that show any detail.
If I remember correctly I think it is graded AU58, I'll dig it up when I look for the other woodies.
If you are saying that the percentages are wrong, no. They were literally not blended properly.
Thanks!!! Last question... Is woodgrain considered toning?
I have a 1909 IHC with the same effect. Does it add any value to it?
I would not think so, but I have seen some that it might be. There was one posted here about a year or 1 1/2 ago (1925-??) that was absolutely gorgeous.
Does this wheat have the woodgrain effect? (My pic of the reverse doesn't show it too well)
I know you got wood brother....your wood collection is nothing short of amazing! :kewl:
Here's another for your enjoyment!
