They will tone according to the way they were stored, even in the mint packaging. All plastics are permeable. The blues are my favorite toning color.
Ok, first things first, the FS (full step) designation is not used for proof coins as they are double struck and are supposed to have full details. Second, the chances that your nickel will grade PR69 is really remote, you should expect PR66-67 from a typical well preserved proof set.
The early 60’s proof sets were sold in cellophane mint packaging and many of the Jeffersons have developed monochromatic yellow, blue, or purple toning. And while attractive, the color schemes are so common that they don’t really garner a premium price unless that have cameo contrast or rainbow toning.
I recently submitted and sold this rainbow toned 1964 Jefferson Nickel which graded PF66 for $150.
I currently have a blue proof 1963 at NGC for reholdering that grades PF67* and I would be happy to get $50 for it. The * designation indicates that one side of the coin has cameo contrast.
@Razz Beautiful coin!!
Lehigh Thank you for the edumacation. I am still new to collecting, still learning. Speaking of cameo I see alot of coins that have a black reflection to show cameo. I have a 1976 set still in hard plastic that has has the frosted Presidents. how do I distinguish between regular cameo and deep cameo?
