Stack's Bowers Auction November 2020 U.S. Coins Auction Nov-2020 1961 Franklin Half Dollar. FS-801. Doubled Die Reverse. Proof-68 (PCGS). CAC. A virtually perfect example of this popular Doubled Die Reverse variety. The surfaces are platinum-white with just the faintest traces of patina, sporting an all-brilliant finish across each side. Nicely reflective in the fields and entirely without flaws beneath a glass. The 1961 Doubled Die Reverse has a loyal following not only for its scarcity but for the strong doubling of the reverse, most easily noticed in the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. It is, in fact, the strongest known Doubled Die of the Franklin series and is visible without magnification for those with rested eyes. At Proof-68, this is the sole finest graded by PCGS in any category and the green CAC sticker testifies to this superior quality. An irresistible offering for the most advanced Franklin half dollar specialist. PCGS Population: 1; none finer. PCGS# 6689. Click here for certification details from PCGS.
