1938-S Oregon Trail Memorial. MS-68+ (PCGS). CAC. Unsurpassed and alone at the zenith of the grading scale for this issue, and a coin of extraordinary beauty for its delicate rainbow rim toning. Note the location of the deeper hues, coming right from the sun in the design on the left side of the obverse while the reverse toning forms somewhat of a frame around the Chief. Satiny luster abounds and the eye appeal is strong throughout. As Registry collectors know, it takes quite a special coin to earn the highest grade awarded for any issue, and when the coin is alone at the top of the grading scale, the qualities must be truly sound. Destined to the centerpiece of any advanced collection.
