    Coin Roll Hunting Part 8 - Toners Toners Toners

    Second time I have gone back to this big box branch. So glad I did cause this was an interesting brick. First there were 15 wheats, five before 1940. Then there were 15 keepers. Of the keepers there were 10 toners! I found two solid rolls of 2016 P almost UNCs. Of the two rows there was only one specimen grade keeper. But interestingly there were a lot of other 2016 pennies throughout the box. I would love to find some more solid rolls. I wish I would have saved the other near UNCs. There was a 1986 that looked sand blasted. I will ask about that in a different thread. And finally I found about six coins with the same environmental damage, but all in different rolls, all different years.

    So I have a bunch of toners in flips that I have to grade and catalog. And then there is this the brick that is from a new branch. But after that I am thinking of pulling my toners and making a video to highlight the beautiful toned pennies I have.

    I love toners but have major issues with getting pics that portray how good they actually look, it's never even close to showing how great they look!!

    My newer smartphone actually has produced some nice actual colors on some of my coins lately.

    Thats why I was thinking about a video. Static phone stand would allow me to use both hands to turn the coin. The hardest part is getting the lighting correct.

    Some people have had success here using paper over the light source (diffusers), with a small "smiley" cut into the surface of the diffuser.

    I'm probably wrong but it might be helpful to use indirect lighting, where minimal light reflects off something somewhat reflective (white or maybe even gray paper.)
