Choice 1947D Ch BU Booker T. Washington US Commem Rare 6,000 Mintage, Graded MS64 by NGC, Lot #141
This very bright Booker T. Washington commemorative half dollar is one of the more desirable year/mint combinations. The "P" mints are common through the several years of the issues, while the "D" and "S" have substantially lower mintages., except in some of the issues such as 1947 which have a remarkable mintage of only 6,000 each. Prices today have launched these low mintages into new territory with raw BU coins ranging from $50-$100, you just have to find the right one! This is a nice NGC MS64, starting to get into heady territory for this issue. Priced at much lower than comparable slabbed 64s. As you would expect, the prices begin to rise dramatically from 63 to 64 to 65.
