Remember my 41-D Toned Roll? How about a 40-D?

Three years ago I posted coins from a 41-D roll which had beautiful rainbow toning. Well, here is the first coin from a 40-D roll with similar toning, perhaps a bit darker, but with lots of green, which I really like. Let me know what you all think! I'll post a few more later.

I like it! Very nice! Would be much better if it didn't have that small scratch by the C in cent.

OK, I have finished imaging all the nicest coins from this roll, total of 21 coins. I combined the images into a 30MP Collage and uploaded it to the EasyZoom hosting site. I've been using this site for hosting my High Resolution stitched images, so this seemed a logical extension.

Here is the link to the Collage. Use the zoom button at upper left to zoom-in, and move the collage around with your mouse to view all the coins.

Take a look and let me know what you think of the coins, and of the presentation!

Were these coins stored in roll form ? I can't imagine how they toned so uniformly. 

They're lovely and your photography is great !

I've had quite a few rolls over the years that have toned like this. Most have already been in plastic tubes (like this one and the 41-D), but several have been in OBW paper and came out of the roll like this. I can only think that it must take just the right storage conditions for many years to produce such a deep, uniform toning.

I saw these posted ATS also, and it looks like you have gotten plenty of buy offers.  You shouldn't have any problem selling them, if you choose to do so. They are great looking coins. :golfclap:

Cool image even slightly zoomed. Love that original look and hope you don't mind if I saved that image.

Thanks!

No problem with saving the image. FYI the way copyright for images works is you can download/screenshot/save any image you want for your own personal use, you just can't post it or use it for commercial purposes. So feel free to download and enjoy!
