"TONED" Silver 1907 Barber Quarter1316 viewsTHIS is a truly toned silver coin. Many people will hold up a tarnished silver coin, or post one on eBay or in some auction and say it is a TONED, or a beautifly toned coin when it is merely a grey or varying shade of grey coin. What they really have is a "RUSTY" coin. Silver tarnishes far more easily in more recent year as the number of deisel cars and trucks have increased putting more "sulphur" in the air. Sulphur is the major cause of tarnish. (ACID causes tru toning)Apr 01, 2011
