1938-S 50C Boone MS65 Certification #21825100, PCGS #9276

Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1938-S Boone had a miniscule original mintage of only 2100 coins and even though most of the original mintage was saved and never saw cirulation, it is a relatively scarce coin. The average 1938-S Boone has satiny-like surfaces and good eye appeal. It is slightly rarer than the 1938-D and not quite as rare as the 1938, especially in Superb Gem MS67 condition.
