I wish you could see the Rembrandt exhibit at the National Gallery in Washington (unfortunately closing March 18).  There are several examples of multiple impressions of the same image illustrating among other things his use of plate tone.  Differences in how the plate is wiped can impart strikingly different moods to an image.
