Wow, has this become a popular set! The proof Franklin series is a mixed bag of rarities and ultra-common coins, depending on the condition and amount of cameo contrast that you are seeking. At the present time over 900 sets could potentially be assembled in Proof 65 or better grade, but only one set can be put together in Proof 65 Deep Cameo (or better). Highest possible grade? Greatest degree of cameo contrast? A combination of the two? Whatever your pleasure, this short series can introduce you to the joys of collecting without breaking the bank. (For more information on this series, refer to "Cameo And Brilliant Proof Coinage Of The 1950 To 1970 Era" by Rick Tomaska.)

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
