ORIGIN OF THE BATTLE CREEK COLLECTION. Until March 1964, it was possible to redeem silver certificates with US silver dollar coins, and many collectors thus acquired original bags of Morgan dollars. The Battle Creek Collection bags were tagged with both original Philadelphia Mint tags and seals dated 1885 (2 bags), 1886 (2 bags), or 1887 (6 bags). Additional each had a supplementary tag from the Detroit Branch of the Chicago Federal Reserve bearing dates in the 1920's. The bags were slit in their presence to prove that they did, in fact, contain silver dollars. Thereafter, the bags were opened and tubed for submission to NGC at Engle's Coin Shop in Indianapolis, IN. There was no way to know that this was a toned dollar deal when I bought them. The vibrant patina that results from storage in original mint bags is most often referred to by numismatists as bag toning. For a coin to tone, it must have rested near the canvas fabric of the bag, which in turn needed to be stored in a stable environment that fostered its development. Bag toned coins can display intense iridescent colors that include every shade in the rainbow; these so-called "rainbow toned" coins, which show varying bands of color, are much sought after by collectors.
If a coin rests partially atop another, dramatic arcs of color can result in a pattern called crescent toning. " Among the most desirable bag toning formations that can occur are "textile toned coins which incorporate the intricate woven pattern of the canvas bag within the multicolor patina of the coin. Coins from the Battle Creek Collection include all these possible iterations of bag toning.
