Case 4: The Great Quarter Quandary
Shiny Bicentennial Quarter obverse

The shading you see on this quarter is called toning.  Over time, coins tone when they are exposed to sulfur and other chemicals.  But this coin hasn't been exposed to PVC.  How can you tell?  There are no traces of the nasty "green slime" that is PVC's calling card!
