Franklin halves are under appreciated in my opinion, so let's see some. Feel free to post some examples of your Franklin's for the rest of us to see.

Beautiful 57 Proof!

Here is a 1959P MS65 grade from PCGS.

This is the only slabbed Franklin that I have.

Sorry about the Obverse being a bit blurry.

I'm just started looking at the Franklin halves. Want the type I to this PF56, all the 48, 49 and 52s.

Great Ben's so far guys, does any one have a deeply worn Franklin? With such a short time span, and the silver withdrawal from circulation, most all of these halves I've seen are VF or better.

Great photos so far!

I wish I had some photos of my Franklin half dollars to share. This is one of my favourite collections.

Nice pair southsav, most of my non proofs were yanked out of circulation back in the 60's and 70's and not as crisp as yours. The proofs had been my focus and here is another one.

I'm still in the middle of things, but I have to get this one graded. It's the best '53 I've ever seen.





I should have it graded soon.

Note: I have to point out this is not MY coin. My WIFE found it late last year on eBay for almost nothing. She bought it then asked me what I thought. I almost passed out!

Wish my Frankies were on par with all yours. But here my best examples nonetheless.





Busted this one out of a sealed mint envelope and was disappointed to discover that discoloration near the E in America and above the eagle as well. All the coins from this proof set has some sort of discoloration on them, at least I purchased it for melt !





This one is my best one pulled from circulation. Has near full bell lines from what I can tell.

I apologize about the quality of the images, my phone doesn't take the best of shots up close.

Hey mud, you got the 56 proof type I? Anyone have it? How about a good private photo?

I'm a late bloomer, just started back into the numis field in 2008 after a 40 year hiatus.

Yoko, that is a very clean 53 and appears to be fbl. congrats!

deltron, nothing wrong with yours, I'd be proud to have it.
