  1. Tracking down a 1950-D mint state Franklin half dollar with mega luster is an extremely frustrating task. Over the last two decades of handling thousands of certified 1950-D mint state Franklins the most common issues for this date I have found are bag marks, dull eye-appeal, water spotting and lack of luster. Quite a few issues indeed and when you come across a gem without these problem areas you have found the ULTIMATE 1950-D mint state Franklin half dollar. NGC has only certified two examples to date in STAR. Only two!!!! Why? The 1950-D mint state Franklin half dollar is an extremely
  2. I am absolutely thrilled to be able to offer this breathtaking 1955-P mint state Franklin half dollar in top quality condition. Not only is the 1955-P Franklin the lowest mintage in the series but it is also extremely rare to find in blast-white condition in high grade with full bell lines. This is the ULTIMATE 1955-P Franklin! The luster is magnificent, the surfaces are extremely clean and the eye appeal is out of this world! I am telling you this is one tough example to come by and when it gets tucked away it might be years before you come across another. A good majority of the 1955-P
  3. If you are looking for a high quality 1956 Type 2 Franklin half dollar that borders right on the cusp of ULTRA CAMEO status in high grade check out this beauty right here. The cameo frost is INTENSE! Franklin and the Liberty bell are POPPING off beautiful jet-black fields. Around the reverse starting at 9:00 to 5:00 beautiful tangerine hues grace the rim adding to the eye-appeal this beauty already offers. This is a killer example! What is holding this example back from ULTRA status? If the fields were just a tad bit deeper this one would be designated ULTRA as the frost is ALL THERE! NG

The reverse takes center stage with the central portion bathed in a lovely baby blue with hints of gold swirling into electric bright shades of hot-pink, forest green, tangerine, ocean blue and purple.

  10. 1948-D mint state Franklins are extremely rare in high grade. Bag marks are a big issue and keeps these examples out of 66 realm. NGC has only certified 20 examples in MS66 and only 48 in MS66FBL. Locating examples in spot-free condition with bright luster are tough to come by. Attractive color toned examples are extremely tough to come by as well. Locating a high grade MS66FBL with attractive color is extremely rare!

  12. Finding a 1956 Type 1 proof Franklin in high grade is no easy task, especially in cameo. This coin is phenomenal! I think this jewel definitely deserves a STAR. The cameo contrast on the obverse is in CAMEO+ territory. CAMEO+ contrast on a 1956 Type 1 proof Franklin on the obverse is extremely rare to come by. Flip this beauty over and BAM the Liberty bell is smothered in HEAVY snow-white ULTRA CAMEO frost. It doesn't get much better than this! The highest grade NGC has certified in ULTRA CAMEO is a PF 68 ULTRA CAMEO. This example comes extremely close to that status. The fields are deep black
  13. This 1955 proof Franklin is unbelievable on so many levels! First off this example is right on the cusp of Ultra Cameo status. The obverse is fully Ultra with CAKED snow-white frosted cameo devices. Flip this beauty over and the Liberty bell is dripping with snow-white frost as well just falling a tad short of Ultra status. Very deserving of the Star from NGC offering Ultimate eye-appeal. The jet-black fields are free of spots or haze. Do you know how rare 1955 proof Franklins are with this level of cameo contrast? NGC has only graded 126 total examples in all grades of Ultra Cameo. This is an
  14. This is one of the finest 1957 proof Franklins in a PF 68 Cameo holder. The obverse is fully Ultra! The contrast is absolutely unbelievable and so rare to find this heavily frosted. Wow!

This is one of the best 1957 proof Franklins out there. Extremely rare in this condition. NGC has only graded 38 examples in PF 68 STAR CAMEO to date. NEW LISTING!
