Lot Description
1946-D 50C Booker T. Washington MS67+ S NGC. CAC. Booker T. Washington, the brilliant educator who was the first leader of the Tuskegee Institute, received recognition in his lifetime and long after his death. In Heritage's world headquarters city of Dallas, for example, his name graces the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, a prominent magnet school. Here at Heritage, we frequently see another tribute to Washington: the commemorative coins which bear his likeness. Offered here is a remarkable example of the 1946-D Booker T. Washington issue, strongly lustrous and impressively preserved beneath a rich cloak of green-gold, jade, lavender, and maroon patina. Eye appeal is fantastic. Census: 2 in 67+ S, 5 finer (3/11).
