As some of the newer people have been wondering about how all this Taco Bell Napkin business got started and why it is sooo popular. As the originator of this I feel it need to spread some light as to how happened and the results. Thus why people like it sooo much and now recommend it for coins that need help. First lets start with the coin as I first got it back in Dec of 2005, Which I took the first photos of it on Jan 7th 2006



Then It was left on my desk for 2 months on the napkin I used to photo the coin. It started to get color. Then I took the napkin and wrapped it up with the coin inside. Put it in a Kraft Envelop and inside the cabinet it went.(Bathroom) There is a cup of water in the cabinet as well. Took a series of photos over about 6 months time. Which brings us to here..

Here is a series of pictures.

1st is on 1/7/06
2ndis on 3/28/06
3rd is on 5/10/06
4th is on 6/10/06
5th is on 7/31/06
6th is on 8/29/06








So I said I was stopping the expierment and put the coin in a 2x2 flip. About 2 months later I decided with new lights I wanted to photo the coin again. I took the coin out of the 2x2 and took more photos. I did not much care for the photos, but anyhow I put it then in a flip in case I got the urge to photo it again. Few months passed and the TNA Show came up. Showed the coin to a few people who liked it. Brandon Kelley of ARC said he thought the flip was not the best storage for it. So got home and took it out of the flip. layed the coin top of it. Sometimes thing on my desk get a bit cluttered soo somehow I managed to lose track of the coin again. Texas Heat in the summer, and no AC heated things up again when I was cleaning my desk off. Low and behold all the coins on my desk were fine, but this one had changed more. Here is how it looks currenly, since the next day I got an airtite for it...






This is how Taco Ball Napkin toning got started and how it grew on people. Many have tried it with diff results. Some have been posted while others have not been. This is the coin that started it all. Now Fire away with questions, comments, etc.

The only other results I have seen posted is on a modern SAE. I doubt it would hold much value as it would relate to a bust half.

Bruce, I remember someone somewhere either posted or linked to a cleaned coin that was wrapped in toilet paper, and the results were stunning, similar to yours.

Here's one that I posted a couple of years ago. I think this was before I knew that I was supposed to use a Taco Bell napkin instead if tissue.

Reeded Edge Half in tissue paper

I can't see the original pictures since Photobucket is blocked for me at work, so if they aren't showing up I will try to put them back tonight. I think I need to take new pictures too because the coin has continued to tone a bit more after I removed it from the tissue.

Here is a 1921 Morgan that was dipped and then wrapped in Toilet paper. It took about 4 or 6 months for this to happen.

Here is one with simmilar toning (not by me) slabbed by NGC.

I think we're uncovering the secret of the giants in the doctoring industry. Toilet paper.
It makes me want to wrap all my coins in toilet paper. I'd like to see if NGC or PCGS will holder that coin, as I suspect they will. It's quite pretty. I like it.

Since it takes a few months for this to happen with TP, my guess is, they are using chemicals that do the same thing in minutes.
