One of the key striking characteristics on the Franklin half dollars is the bell lines on the bottom of the Liberty Bell on the Reverse. Some dates are notorious for weak strikes and command a significant premium for “Full Bell Lines” or FBL. For all varieties, see Flynn’s book, The Authoritative Reference on Franklin Half Dollars or Treasure Hunting Franklin and Kennedy Half Dollar Doubled Dies.
