2006-P Silver Dollar PR70DCAM: Benjamin Franklin-Founding Father { PCGS-3 } (Jun'2008) Mintage: 142,000 (proof) An older Benjamin Franklin (Statesman), and one of the Founding Fathers is featured along with his famous autograph. He was the only person, at age 81, to sign all four of the major documents instrumental to the founding of the United States – the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, the Treaty of Paris and the Treaty of Alliance, Amity and Commerce, in which France recognized and supported the United States. This piece has great frosting and mirrors - a perfectly rendered piece, with near maximized devices on the reverse.
