MORE EXCITING NEWS IN THE PROOF FRANKLIN SERIES...

No, it's not "another" record price - those seem to come almost every month nowadays :)... NGC is working on recognizing major cameo Franklin die varieties on their holders! I have been working with NGC about 6 months on this project, and I believe NGC will be ready to go very soon!

I have looked at literally thousands, perhaps 10,000, 1950 proof sets over the decade. When one considers the fact that the mint only issued 51,386 proof sets in this first year of issue 1950, that is about 20% of the entire mintage! That's going back to the early 1980s.

Imagine the countless hours I spent opening original boxes of 1950 proof sets, gently unwrapping the tissue paper, to catch a glimpse of what wondrous coins may appear! Imagine my disappointment, when time after time, the half dollar would be badly hairlined and spotted... basically a disaster :(

The 1950 being offered belonged to a phenomenal collection - among the TOP THREE Cameo Franklin collections in the country! This 1950 is struck from a TOP cameo die. This is a die that should also be recognized as a major cameo Franklin die variety by NGC.

This is the ONLY 1950 certified in PF 67+ CAMEO by NGC!!!

174 examples certified in NGC PF 65 CAMEO
68 examples certified in NGC PF 66 CAMEO
18 examples in NGC PF 67 CAMEO
1 example in NGC PF 67+ CAMEO
2 examples in NGC PF 68 CAMEO

The two examples in PF 68 CAMEO were struck from the same exceptional dies as this cameo example! All 3 are essentially identical! HEAVILY contrasted on the obverse and a full ULTRA HEAVY reverse! The mirrors are exceptionally deep, haze-free, and spot-free!

The biggest difference between the 3 coins is the price! The last example in 68 sold for about double what I have this conservatively graded PF 67+ CAMEO offered at!

A SPECTACULAR 1950 proof Franklin. A TRUE EVEREST example of this RAREST of all proof Franklins. A PCGS graded example in PR 67+ CAMEO sold in auction last year for well over $40,000. I acquired this coin from a large collection, offering at a great collector-friendly price!
