1952 Washington-Carver Half, MS67
Extraordinary Toning and Clean Surfaces

1952 50C Washington-Carver MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1952 Washington-Carver half dollar issue was an extremely high release for a commemorative half -- Bowers estimates that something over 1.1 million pieces were released, net after melting -- and predictably, many ended up in circulation and most were poorly made. To add insult to injury, most of them were made from melted-down Booker T. Washington commemorative halves that had failed to sell earlier and were recast into the Washington-Carver pieces.
The present coin, however, is one of those miraculous top few pieces that managed to be well-struck and survived in nearly pristine condition. In addition to its immaculate preservation, it has developed the most extraordinarily beautiful toning, concentric rings of red, green, blue, and yellow, with intense luster underneath. An amazing coin that has to be seen to be appreciated. Population: 7 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# BYL3, PCGS# 9434)
