|Title||1946 50C Booker T. Washington, MS|
|Service Catalog #||9404|
1946 50C Booker T. Washington MS66 NGC. Dave Bowers estimates that of the 1 million 1946 Booker T. Washington halves struck for sale to collectors, perhaps 700,000 were actually distributed. This is the most readily available issue in the series, frequently encountered in MS66 but seldom seen finer. A ring of pale gold surrounds untoned centers on this frosty, sharply rendered Premium Gem. Three ticks on the cheek preclude an even higher grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
