The Franklin Half Dollar, designed by John R. Sinnock, was minted from 1948 to 1963. This specific example of the 1960 Proof Franklin Half Dollar is graded Proof 69 Star by NGC. With a low Proof 69 Star population of just 38 coins, this 1960 Franklin Half Dollar is a great numismatic rarity. Out of all 1960 Proof Franklins ever graded, there are none that have graded higher than Proof 69, making this one of the finest known examples. To tie it all together, NGC has given this Franklin Half Dollar a Star designation. The illustrious Star designation is given by NGC to a limited amount of coins that exhibit the highest quality eye appeal for their year and grade.
