About This Set: In Memory of my good friend Frank Chiong. Frank had a great passion for Franklins and had a registry set listed at one time. He was a great friend to me that helped me in many ways while I have been assembling this set. There is no way that my set will ever have as many high grade coins as Frank's set but that did not stop him from helping me choose nicer coins for the date.

Awesome endroll toner that is white on the obverse and has the most spectacular toning you can probably find for the date on the reverse. The reverse is covered in orange, neon green, turquois, red, and yellow.There is a very distinct triangle where a fold would have been. The coin is very clean with only 3 very faint hits on Ben's cheek. There are also no major hits on the reverse and the coin has outstanding luster. The tenth coin Frank never saw.

This coin has unigue looking toning on the obverse consisting of teal, blue, greeen, orange, and purple. The reverse has a band of toning cinsisting of brown, green, yellow, purple, and blue. The coin had great luster and is pretty hit free. Seventh coin Frank never saw.

1956 6671 1956 50C MS65 2131 700 21736681
A gorgeous mint set toner in a classic doiley holder that was only used for about 5 months. The obverse has very subtle blue toning under and around Franklins bust along with peach. Above the bell there is a gorgeous blue and purple mix. Farther down it changes to a green and purple mix and then right at the very bottom of the bell it turns to completely green. A very PQ coin that will stay the way it is in the doiley holder. Purchased from forum members Anaconda and poorguy of Anaconda Rare Coins. Fifth coin Frank never saw.

1961-D 6681 1961-D 50C MS65 818 67 8182535
This is probably the nicest toner in my entire set so far. It has gorgeous neon green toning along with lots of orange and pink on the obverse. The reverse is a light blue and purple mix.
