Here's another Sesqui. This one is raw, so no PCGS TrueView photos this time, just my own

Working on: Franklin halves (now complete!), Peace dollars (three to go), US type (Bust era), and just started Chinese pandas.

Thanks for sharing Alpha. I'm really enjoying seeing that quarter eagle - hadn't really looked at the design before.

I'm sure I could Google this, but the Liberty Bell reverse on the half dollar looks so close to the Franklin reverse. Any connection?

Update: NVM - found this 1948 press release on the US Mint website:


Quote:
The Liberty Bell representation on the reverse of the coin was adapted by Mr. Sinnock from one which he modeled for a commemorative half dollar issued for the Sesquicentennial of American Independence in 1926. The bell is suspended from its familiar wooden beam, with the time-honored crack in the bell discernible. The lettering E Pluribus Unum is inscribed at one side of the bell, and the American eagle appears at the other.

Nice ones so far! The buffalo proof is one of the few modern proof coins I like.

Wow I didn't remember the recycled design on the gold coin to the 1976 Kennedy half.

Right. The reverse of each of these were reworked for later halves. That's kinda cool.

Here's a proof version of the Disabled Vets Commemorative. Scratch on the reverse is on the slab.
