Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1946 Denver is the lowest mintage of the three 1946 Booker T Washingtons, but at 200,000 minted it can hardly be considered rare. Like all Booker T Washingtons, the 1946-D is rare in super high Gem grades. And in MS66 and MS67 grades, the 1946-D is much scarcer than the 1946 and 1946-S. The typical 1946-D BTW has frosty luster and is relatively well struck.
