I'm far from a Franklin expert. The color and strike looked good so I bought her/him?

Do you have any issues or concerns around this piece?

I'm far from an expert on Franklins but this type of toning always worries me about what might be underneath. Other than that, looks like a decent half!

It's pretty !

If I didn't know better, I would have have thought that it was an earlier 'cardboard' mint-set issue......

Do you “know better”? That’s what it looks like to me.

Didn't '57 come in cellophane ?

I probably haven't had one in 30 years.......

Not the ones that I remember seeing.

Thanks guys.

I didn't remember them being in cardboard.

I thought I was wrong one time before, but I was mistaken......

I really like the color of the Franklin.

I'm just not sure that I like what looks to be fingerprints.
