    I don't collect post-64 toners, but I had to submit these silver proofs when I saw them in an album I purchased for another coin. All PR69 Deep Cam except the 92 (PR68 Deep Cam). The TrueViews came out pretty well, but they look even flashier in hand.

    Thanks for this. I paid a lot for that coin and it's comments like this that make it a little easier to swallow.

    Green is my favorite color on toned Morgans. Love it!

    This Monroe commemorative doesn't have a lot of inherent contrast, so sometimes the subtle design can be hard to appreciate. The blue and brown toning may not be flashy, but it's just right to bring out the contours.

    Been building a collection of the modern half dollar commemoratives and found this one in the original packaging. Definitely a keeper

    @Paul_62, that's nice. Love the patina on the reverse! Nice addition.

    You know that set packed by the mint seems to tone that color durring that time period. I've noticed on some of my sets turning that shade.... makes e wonder what was used ie glue, paper products, plastics, and which are gasing out .

    I bought this capital proof set for the dime, but the Franklin ended up being amazing too!
