The majority of the inside lids of this set - the white silk has some

amount of red staining from the red felt used as the inside

base that the coins sit in.

Elizabeth II   1970 (Last Sterling issue)

1970 to 1984 sets

I have looked at several 100's of proof sets from 

1970 - 1982 and note that over 95% of ALL of these   

sets have coins, in each set, that are starting to tone.

It is normally the copper coins that start to tone first but

the cupro-nickle coins can also show some signs of toning.

A possible cause is that the glue the Royal Mint 

used in these early sets are having this adverse 

effect on the coins locked in these sealed units !?

It is possible that eventually one day

ALL of these sets will become toned !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We have graded our sets from 1970 to 1984

into TWO categories

The best sets we offer might exhibit a hint or bit of toning.

The sets that we list "With slight tone"

might exhibit slightly more toning.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
