In his "factoid" on toning he states:

"....Multicolored rainbow toning on nickel is artificial."

My favorite "Numismatist" cover (a couple of years ago) featured a beautifully
toned Buffalo nickel.

The rainbow toned nickel I posted just a few min. after your post Phil
is now residing in a PCGS holder as genuine. Maybe Reid needs to go to
PCGS and teach a class on toning? ;)

Yep! That is it. :-)

This Anaconda is still one of my favorites and the one I was
referring to above. No, I don't own it...which probably doesn't need
to be said. :-)

He used to have up a rainbow pastel buffalo that I liked too. It was
a 1913 but I don't see it offered right now.

He posted his toning "treatise" again just minutes ago....along with some of
his other periodic drivel. It's always amazed me that these "periodic" posts
seem to show up when he is taking some heat here.

I've owned this coin for close to 20 years and I think it has toned while in
my possession, and I did not help it along.  If, in fact, Reid has made the
above statement, he is wrong.   Bill

Dose it look like this:

http://www.thestujoecollection.com/otherpic/yelljeff.jpg

or this

http://www.thestujoecollection.com/otherpic/buff1.jpg

or one of the tons of different shades?

I am not particularly advanced in my toning knowledge. I look at
toning and basically say "Pretty" / "Not Pretty" and move on. :-)

I do think that yellow and golden is typical for nickels and that the
environment they are stored in is usually the reason they tone that
way. I don't know whether the nickel or the nickel/copper alloy is
the reason.

The first coin is in a cheap mass produced cardboard and plastic
display holder. I figure that there was a lot of sulphur in the paper
of that holder and whatever environment (temp and humidity) it was
stored in added to the reaction.

I know various shades of yellow and golden are very common on
nickels, although other colors are fairly often seen too. I even have
some clad coinage that is toning that kind of golden color also.

What a pretty coin this is, and closest to what I have. Unfortunately it
is not in a holder, yet, but as soon as I can I will make a pic of it
for you to view, that is if you would like.

Sweet! I think Buffalos like that are just gorgeous. If I was ever to
have to pick one series to collect and only one, it would be buffalos
and they would all be various shades of gold and yellow and maybe a
few rainbows over the gold for some. :-)

Sure, I'd love to see it. My coin is still in the holder that caused
the toning. It is one of those sets that you would see in a credit
card statement or in the Sunday paper. Coins of The Presidents, I
think or some such. My Dad bought it, probably half a dozen years ago
and kept it stored in a closet. Eventually, I will crack it out and
put it in my main collection.
