David Hall:

More shenanigans from the infamous C. Frank Dunn were foisted on the coin collecting public for the 1937 Boones. The 1937 Philadelphias were priced at $1.60, but the Denver issue could only be bought as a pair with the Philadelphia for $7.25. The San Francisco issue was priced at $5.15, a price considered outrageous at the time. The explotation of the collectors was a little two obvious and consequently sales of the 1937-D and 1937-S were quite low, a total of only 2,506 coins each.

Today, the 1937 Philadelphia Boone is one of the more common Boones. This issue readily available in grades MS63 thru MS66 and Superb MS67 examples are not that difficult to locate. The 1937 has the typical "Boone look," semi-frosty, semi-satiny luster and good eye appeal.
