Actually, it's technically not AT. Ikes can get some interesting toning. It was found in a box filled with tissue paper by a very reputable dealer when checking out a deceased person's collection. He posted a bunch of them to the NGC boards years ago. Given that they were high grade AU they were basically a throw-in to the rest of the collection, so he got them for face. I bought the 3 that most interested me. My grand total cost was $5 of which $1 was for shipping. The one posted above was the most AT looking one of the group. Here's another one from the same group...
I am not sure if it's the photo angle but the serf on the S mint mark could be upside down? If so it's a die variety???
Thanks! I'm glad you like it!
I'm not a variety guy. I did check in the "cherrypickers guide" after I got the coin (a couple of years ago), but the coin did not have any variety characteristics.
Seller's pics. Nice coins and fast shipping!
I love the toning on the reverse. some how I have started collecting toned coins from the U.S. and world coins. it is now an addiction. I hope there is no cure for it. lol
hey wait a minute ...I buy from him and did NOT see that Canadian quarter hmmmm...great buy. envy is the word. awesome colors on that quarter.
Beautiful bag toning
Several years ago there was a group/organization called the Toned Coin Collectors Society. Here are the (only somewhat tongue in cheek) 12 steps for members of the Society...
We admitted we were powerless over toned coins – that our bank accounts had become unmanageable.
Came to believe a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity, namely our spouses.
Made a decision to turn our will and “A box” toners over to the care of Ron.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our “C box” toners.
Admitted to our members, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our bad purchases.
Were entirely ready to have TCCS remove all these defects of character.
Humbly asked TCCS to remove our shortcomings.
Made a list of all persons we had irritated and inadvertently boasted to, regardless of their interest or lack thereof, regarding our toned coin collection and became willing to make amends to them all.
Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would possibly jeopardize our acquisition of a new toner, particularly when attending an auction.
Continued to take inventory and when we overpaid promptly admitted it.
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with TCCS, praying only for knowledge of its will for us and the power to make another purchase.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other toneaholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs, except when attending a coin show.
WOW! love the color
EYE Candy it's that nice
