1955 Franklin Half Dollar NGC PF68+ UCAM RT-26 We The People Signature


The Franklin Half Dollar, designed by John R. Sinnock, was minted from 1948 to 1963. The Proof issues of the Franklin Half Dollar would not commence until two years later in 1950. This specific Proof example was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1955 and has been graded in Proof 68+ Ultra Cameo condition. Additionally, this coin has been categorized as Tomaska Die 26, one of the top varieties featured in Rick Tomaska’s “Cameo and Brilliant Proof: Coinage of the 1950 to 1970 Era”. Early strikes from these dies are considered to be among the most exceptional in terms of their cameo contrast. Recognizing the quality of this stunning coin, it has been placed in the NGC exclusive Tomaska Signature Series holder which is reserved for coins deemed to exhibit the highest quality luster and eye appeal for their year and grade after being personally inspected by Rick Tomaska, who has hand-signed the label himself. Out of every 1955 Franklin Half Dollar struck, only 6 have been graded in PF67+ UCAM condition and just 1 of those are housed in the Tomaska Signature Series holder. Only a very small number of Proof 1955 Franklin Half Dollars will be eligible to be housed in the Tomaska Signature Series. With a minuscule mintage of only 378,200 examples and so few PF68+ coins achieving Tomaska Signature Series designation, this coin is considered an Absolute and Condition Rarity.
