David Hall: The 1935, 1935-D, and 1935-S with the "small 1934" variety of Boone commemoratives were the subject of manipulation and controversy at the time of issue. I'll tell the story of the two "manufactured rarities", the 1935-D and 1935-S small 1934, under the narrative for the 1935-D small 1934 (PCGS coin # 9263). The 1935 Philadelphia with the small 1934 had a mintage of 10,008 coins, among the highest number minted for all the Boone commemoratives. It is common in MS63 to MS66 and fairly easy to locate in Superb Gem MS67. Luster and eye appeal are usually outstanding on this issue.
