Single Finest Known 1938-D Oregon Trail Memorial, MS69 PCGS1938-D 50C Oregon MS69 PCGS. Technical perfection is assumed at this grade level. In fact, any grade from MS67 on up should exhibit similarly preserved surfaces. What sets this piece apart are primarily two things. First is the coin's aesthetic qualities. While one would expect any coin graded MS69 to have strong visual appeal, this coin REALLY has a strong dose of it. It won't matter if a collector specializes in copper, currency, or commemoratives, this coin has an immediate and lasting effect on the viewer. While each side has a brilliant center, the obverse is surrounded by especially lovely pastel toning, and the reverse is mostly golden-brown around the margins. Thick mint frost overlays over each side and gives the pale toning a vibrancy and life missing on lesser graded coins. Second is the amazingly well executed strike on all of the intricate details of the Frasers' complex design. This is seen in all areas, the full definition on the head and legs of the oxen being a prime example. Truly a magnificent coin, and the single finest known example of this immensely popular Memorial issue. Population: 1 in 69, 0 finer (3/04).
