A surprisingly scarce date from a mintage of nearly 1.2 million. In fact, only 3 examples are graded finer by PCGS (all MS64) with 10 in this grade. Pretty lime and yellow tones throughout with nice, original highlights, this piece is undervalued as an uncirculated example and is top notch for the grade.
Largest mintage of the series with 1,106,292 coins issued to commemorate Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver. D & S mints also issued in 1952. P, D & S mints issued in 51', 53', and 54'. NGC+ grade for premium quality at the top of end of the assigned grade.
