David Hall: Back in the day, the 1949 was a pretty tough BU roll to find in quantity. Today, the 1949 is one of the rarer Washingtons of the 1940s in Gem condition. The issue can have very rough and marked-up surfaces. Clean surface Gems are scarce. Luster can be a little more satiny than on other issue of this era.
