Jaime Hernandez:

The 1949-S Franklin Half Dollar has one of the lowest mintages in the series. However, the 1955-P, 1953-P and 1948-P have a lower mintage. Despite there being other lower mintage coins in the Franklin Half Dollar series the 1949-S appears to be somewhat scarcer than the lower mintage coins. Examples in circulated grades are still easily obtainable but in grades of Extra Fine and higher this date seems to command slightly higher prices than most other coins in the series.
