David Hall: The 1946-S Booker T Washington is a high mintage issue that's relatively common in all mint state grades. The typical specimen has frosty luster and good eye appeal. The 1946 BTW's have long been among the least expensive of all the U.S. silver commemoratives of the classic 1892-1954 era, though in the ultimate MS67 and MS68 there are issues that are even more common, namely the Norfolk and Iowa.
