Here’s an unusual AT question

This seller’s got a lot of clad Kennedy’s from the 70’s and 80’s in mint cellos, and the majority of them are toned. Now I’ve been through enough mint sets to know that the coins in the wrappers can sometimes take on vivid toning, and none of the toning in his offerings looks artificial to […]
