Stack's Bowers Auction May 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction May-2019 Stunning 1947-S Booker T. Washington Half The Finest Known 1947-S Booker T. Washington Memorial. MS-67+ (PCGS). CAC. This amazing Superb Gem combines a golden-tinged reverse with an obverse splashed with vivid reddish-olive iridescence. Both sides are fully frosted and exceptionally smooth for a commemorative half dollar of this type. Although the San Francisco Mint struck 100,000 Booker T. Washington Memorial commemoratives in 1947, approximately 90,000 coins were melted as unsold, leaving a net distribution of just 10,000 or so. This is the single finest graded by PCGS, and it is a coin that would be just right for a top ranked collection on the Set Registry. PCGS Population: 1; 0 finer. PCGS# 9410. NGC ID: BYJX.
