Can someone help me with this Franklin. The luster looks much better in person. Also is this FBL, I can see the whole line in hand holding the coin at the right angle?

Thanks,

AU58 is my estimate, also not FBL as I can see a smooth area on the top row of three lines above the F in HALF

I'm not all to familiar with the tiny details of franklin. I went AU50 mosly due to the words on the bell being significantly worn. There is quite abit of mint luster left. There is also alot of wear on Bens Hair and contact marks by his ear.

I am very new to grading and am trying to learn all I can. This is a useful Section of the forum. I suppose after studying the coin more I would go AU55

How do finger prints affect coin grading?

Im with SDcoinguy. I say 63... its a nice coin with interesting toning which I bet looks much better in hand.
The mark below the sideburn is the only significant problem for me, and I cannot tell FBL from this picture.

I like Franklins with this look. Its a good coin IMO.
