About this set: This date set comprises beautifully toned high-grade examples from Sunnywood's "Somewhere Over the Rainbow Toned Morgans" collection. By displaying images of these colorful coins, we hope to increase awareness of the possibility of collecting attractively and naturally toned Morgans as an alternative to the usual sets of "white" coins. A special thank you goes to Mike DeFalco of Numismatic Enterprises, who has handled just about every great toned Morgan dollar at one time or another. Many fellow toned dollar collectors have also helped along the way, including Jack kelly, Dale Larsen, Gregg Bingham, Lloyd Cowle, and dealers Larry Shepherd, Gary Mugno, and others.
