This was the first year for production of the exquisitely-designed Oregon Trail Commemorative type, which was struck in eight different dates between 1926 and 1939. This San Francisco Mint example is fully struck and flawlessly preserved, with pleasing satiny mint luster and lovely toning near the peripheral regions in hues of coppery-red and golden-brown. Just ten coins are rated finer at PCGS.
