anything anything NGC and PCGS distributions it's all in the curve 144566273 1938 Reverse one of the toughest coins to get in high MS grades. the reverse in never a problem with this series because there isn't much smooth surface area that's exposed. it's always the obverse, and the luster is almost equally as the obverse. but the obverse really radiates. complimentary to the obverse. 144674943 1938 Obverse the obverse in this series is subject to heavy contact marks because there is so much surface area that is prone to wear or dings. the luster/surface is remarkable for this coin, and it's the best one I have ever seen. when buying this series I always look for the least amount of contact marks as possible. 144674944
