Which would back up what I said about how they are made either by a result of manufacture or by intent.

no, it's "Nature Taking Its Course" when it's innocuously placed in a sulphurous environment

Still chemicals on the coin whether by accident, on purpose or manufacture

2009 Proof copper Lincolns

I think this is a nice set. Mine is toning nicely and I understand these are copper. I will try to image these but color is tough to get right.

Actually mine are starting to get a little hazy but with color now that I look at them closer. Any idea what causes the haziness to start.

Sorry but will have better images sometime this winter.

I love these toned Lincolns. Are you putting a set like this together?

I need a few for my toned type set but I have grown very fond of them and now own several “extras”.  I have no plans to go for a complete set.

That's how it starts, although that would be a heck of a hill to climb. A date set would be manageable though.

I kind of like the idea of a date set. I have about 7 or 8 so I'm at least 14% there!  Fortunately, one of them is perhaps the hardest date in the series (1943).  Here are a couple more:

Thanks Dean. Now we'll see what the graders think of it. Should have results in another month or so.
