Lot Description
1949-D 50C Booker T. Washington MS67 S NGC. Per their (12/10) Census report, NGC has certified twenty 1949-D Booker T. Washington halves as MS67. None are plus graded, and only the present lot has been awarded a Star designation. Thus, it can claim status as the single finest NGC-certified example of the low mintage issue. Just 6,004 pieces were struck. Attractive rose-red, apricot-gold, and sea-green toning graces the borders, and the strike is sharp aside from the lower portion of the cheek, which retains traces of the planchet surface.
