Another classic banded rainbow toned dollar, this time from the Philadelphia Mint, and uncommon as such. The 1883-P issue can be found with color, but more often one encounters album toning, or lesser rainbow bag toning. An example with full-blown banded rainbow toning like this is very difficult to find. The Sunnywood Collection has also included end-roll and album target-toned examples of this date. Ex Goldberg, Pre-Long Beach Sale (2/22/05:1878); Mike DeFalco; to Lloyd Cowle; to Sunnywood.
