Classic rainbow bag toning graces the obverse of this Carson City dollar. Whereas album toned coins follow the thin-film interference color progressoin radially from the centers outwards, bag-toned Morgans often exhibit a somewhat linear trajectory of the color progression across the surface of the coin. In this case the lowest degree of toning occurs at about 9 o`clock on the obverse, and the colors progress thence left to right across the surface, moving from amber and burgundy tones, through the cyan and lemon yellow, and into magenta with a bit of blue-green at the extreme right perimeter. A bit of mottling in the toning, easily seen in the left field, is typical of GSA CC dollars. From one-time toned dollar dealer Jason Stevens.
