Got a pic? I'm anxious to see. Have one my self, made post last week and no one took notice, have a serious question about mine.
Just added them
The experts will chime in but I'm thinking the toning looks too perfect, hence artificial.
Has it been in a case or behind glass in the sunlight for a long time?
I have no idea I bought it from someone at a yard sale but it was in a case
Its a bullion coin (not the collector edition) still has value, the artificial toning I dunno. but weight in silver $15 they usually get around 20 without the toning. but its hard to say. the 2015 W burnished gets around 42. would have a w mintmark on it. the reason I say I don't know is I don't know what the toning premium is or is not. the proof is around 50 market value.
Not to mention it's just a 4-year-old coin. Quite an accelerated toning process.
Is it a Burnished eagle or Proof?
It's seddefinit very cool looking, are you the original owner?
Neither, its a bullion coin. the stackable silver. problem is they produced 47 million of that type. but the toning did turn out nice even tho its AT. Im not an expert but I do buy a lot of these, am pretty familiar with the prices. without toning.
2015 1 oz Silver American Eagle BU
No I'm not the original owner but I own it now
I leave this to the pros , I'm sure there's a logical explanation. Still, awesome looking
Toning is a reaction to oxygen and sulfer in the environment over time it doesn't seem like four years would produce this without intentional help with the process.
I would keep it, until I sell it, what I do is buy them sometimes with other things, its silver so it always sells, but I keep them until I want something like another coin that may be pricy, then I sell some to buy whatever, because their easily replaceable, but some I guess have good fortune with toned coins. There are several ways to tone them, some use a lamp I guess, sometimes they turn out ugly, lol, and people want a fortune.
if it was naturally toned, don't you think the rim edges facing up would also be toned?
If it was in a holder, the edges would get toned first and move inwards.
I have no idea what it was in before I got it, it was in like a plastic sleeve when purchased
The toning is plausible. The rims are green, and a little lighter in shade than the blue away from the rim. From left to right, this is the typical color progression of toning (from Jhon E Cash's website):
The orange-magenta-blue-green progression shown in the middle matches the coin, so it's plausibly natural. How it developed so evenly in only 4 years, I can't tell you. Will a grading service validate it? Maybe. If each time you were to send it, there's a 30% chance (I really don't know what this number is) of it being graded, assuming each grading attempt is independent of the previous, then by the third try, you have a 75% chance of it getting in a graded holder. Call it a game if you will, but it's one that gets played a lot.
If it were mine, I'd compare with other toned ASEs and show it in person to people who deal with this stuff.
artificial toning for sure. You can get more on Ebay for this toning if you are selling it.
