Another monster rainbow bag-toner, this is absolutely the best toned 1883-O we have ever seen. This coin has an interesting toning patterns, and covers the "spectrum" (actually the thin-film interference toning progression) from a very lightly toned area at 7 o'clock on the obverse, through all the colors, to a rare and attractive glossy midnight color at the top of the obverse. Along the way, golds, reds, greens, blues and magentas are fully evident. A few streaks in the toning add character, but upon close inspection these are not abrasions to the coin's excellent surfaces. A really compelling toned Morgan dollar.
