Lot Description
1947-D 50C Booker T. Washington MS67 PCGS. After the initial production of Booker T. Washington half dollars in 1946 saturated the market, sales dropped dramatically in later years, with the result that such pieces are rarely seen today. The distribution from each mint in 1947 was just 100,017 pieces, the odd 17 coins reserved for the annual assay. This amazing Superb Gem has a bold strike with full obverse and reverse design elements. The surfaces are brilliant and frosty with silver-white luster and no evidence of toning. Here is a remarkable specimen, tied for the finest certified at PCGS or NGC. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (12/12).
