I have a 1962 Proof Franklin half dollar..

The obverse has a very nice cameo but the reverse doesn't, does it still bring a premium?

Thanks in advance folks

It would have to have the cameo on both sides to be graded as a cameo
but someone might give you a bit of a premium.

If you turned it in to NGC they would probably give you a * since they typically do if a coin is cameo on one side.

It looks like the obverse of that Washington next to the Franklin, no cameo

I see what you mean. Looks like they did not give the reverse dies the same effort they gave the obverse.

They also did not necessarily swap the dies at the same time.
