Complete US Mint Year Set (Foreign and Domestic) – 1949

The economy began to turn around in 1949. The DJIA gained over 13% and closed out the year at 200.52. Gold fell back to $31.69, but silver rallied over 3 cents to average 73.3 cents for the year.

Each mint produced every coin except San Francisco did not produce a quarter. The Booker T. Washington was the minted again and a few more foreign countries needed coins. With no rare coins, no pattern coins, and not many error coins, 1949 is a “ho-hum” year for numismatists.
