Two of 11 1949 D Franklin half dollars I found roll hunting...First one has two die cracks, last two pics are one of the nicer ones with less contact marks.

Please elaborate on your find . The ones you posted look uncirculated with possible FBL .

In Memory of Butch L.

I found 11 of the Franklins, all 1949 D which appear to be uncirculated but have contact marks on obverse mostly, several have FBL or if not very close, 23 1964 Kennedy half dollars and 7 40 percent in one box of Loomis rolled Halves.

This is a pic of them except one 40 percent I missed until the second look, but after I resized it looks all pixelated on edges...All the 1949's and 1964's are very nice and appear to be uncirculated or very lightly circulated. I dont know why the pic turned out this way was it was from my phone then resized.

I'm not a fan of the bell lines and the full steps ideas. Seems like they are subject to their call. When I look to see the differences, they are to iffy for me. But the grading fees to me would probably cost as much as you could get back from the coin on PCGS. High grade examples of FBL drop drastically.
1949-D FBL MS-66 $5750.00
1949-D FBL MS-65 $400.00
1949-D FBL MS-64 $120.00

Nothing listed on higher than MS-64 on the normal without the FBLs:
1949-D MS-64 $84.00 (Cost $50 for grading fees leaving a profit of $34.00 for your coin)
1949-D AU-58 $42.00 (Cost $50 for grading fees leaving a LOSS OF -8.00 for your coin)
1949-D AU-55 $35.00 (Cost $50 for grading fees leaving a LOSS OF -15.00 for your coin)
So unless you hit the jackpot on these, you would loose money if they were not a high grade coin. So the graders are the ones making the money. As a buyer, I pay nothing extra for a coin. And I still would make sure their grade is correct. So that is what you are up against. Some will look at a coin and grade it, but not consider, a nick in the coin, a scrape. That drops the value quickly. One incuse mark can turn a coin into a cull. So self grading needs to consider this as well. It tough to decide what to do. Just trying to show you the opposite side of the coin, the selling/grading issues. (Not making no offers, as the forum is not the place for this) Just helping you to consider this.

Thankyou Coop for all the information, I was just happy to finally find something, I did not even know what these were...Bumpkin gave me some info and I researched them when I found them. I think they are beautiful coins and are just going into my collection and very happy to have them. This is one of the nicest ones, all seem to be uncirculated but others have more contact marks, again thankyou for looking and sharing your knowledge! I really do appreciate it!

Sometimes for type sets, people are looking for nice coins for these collections. But probably not many today collect full sets of these half dollars. (that would be pricey for a BU set)
1950-D I've had for years. (scan affect the image)
