Lot Description
1938-D 50C Oregon MS68 NGC. Phenomenal eye appeal combines with technical perfection on this coin. Lovely multicolored original toning on the obverse periphery runs from indigo through rose, sunset-orange, and aqua, while the reverse features, appropriately, a wagon train riding westward into the predominantly sunset-orange colors. This issue is popular not only for its artistic merit, but also as an "alternative" 1938-D half dollar. Census: 23 in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer (10/12).
