. I bought this coin from someone because I kinda liked the blues and purples In it and tried too see if other franklins are like this I’m just curious if this is natural toning or artificial??? The coin isn’t fbl by any means. But am fairly new too collecting and just figured I would ask input on it.

There is artificial toning and actual toning ("tarnish" is the actual, non-marketable and therefore not often used term!). Plug the follwing into a search engine like duckduckgo.com and find the many, many references to this very subject: "artificial vs actual toning coin"

Also, Daniel has a good video on it which you may want to check out first.

It's artificial toning.
