The Franklin Half Dollar, designed by John R. Sinnock, was minted from 1948 to 1963. This specific Franklin Half Dollar example was minted at the Philadelphia Mint during the year 1960. Of the 6,024,000 Franklin Half Dollars struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1960, only 105 have graded in MS66 condition, with only one being graded higher in MS67. In addition to this coin`s tremendous rarity is its Full Bell Line designation, which indicates that this Franklin Half Dollar received a strong, clean strike from the coin press. What makes this Franklin Half Dollars truly unique, is its toning. The obverse exhibits clouds of deep amber flowing across the coin as well as a patina of gentle champagne toning. Flip it to the reverse and there is a subtle purple patina and a stroke of amber along the bottom rim. To tie it all together, Rick Tomaska has personally reviewed this coin and given it his Everest Seal of Approval. This seal is reserved only for coins that Rick has deemed to exhibit the highest eye appeal for their year and grade.
