  1. My father was also born in August 1946 so it is nice to see what else happened during that time period. I didn’t know that Booker T Washington was on the half dollar. I learned something new today.

    1. I didn’t either. I wonder if they issue special half dollars for a limited period of time and then retire them. I have never seen one.

          1. You’re welcome. If you’re interested in reading more, I found a 3 part series of articles regarding African-Americans on coins. Part 1 has a newspaper clip of Booker T’s daughter (picture included) suing for breach of contract concerning the coinage.

            Part 1

            Part 2

            Part 3

  2. I’ve spent the last 40 minutes trying to take it ALL in! What a piece of historic art Kristin! I really need a good cup of coffee and another hour! BEAUTIFUL!:)
