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. In my opinion these are some of the most underpriced US rare coins. What other issues can you find, especially in MS64, witha mintage of only 6,000 that are priced for even $500 or more?
