Lot Description
1947-D 50C Booker T. Washington MS67 NGC. After the extensive distributions of 1946, the 100,017 Booker T. Washington half dollars distributed at each mint (Denver and San Francisco) for 1947 reflected more modest ambitions (David Bowers, 2008). This frosty, boldly struck Superb Gem displays virtually undetectable pale gold patina. A few of the usually seen tiny planchet marks on the profile are noted. Census: 5 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (4/12).
